Kentucky, Duke offer 2015 Blue Chip Guard Malik Newman

iR  
UPDATE:   

Following Kansas’ offer earlier this month, Kentucky & Duke have offered 2015 Callaway High School (MS) guard Malik Newman.

ANALYSIS:

Newman is ranked in the overall Top 5 for the class of 2015 in just about every scouting service. Standing 6’3 and 180 lbs, Newman can flat out do it all and is deniably as athletic as any high school basketball player in the country.  "He's just one of those rare kids that comes along every 10 years or so," Callaway High head coach Wayne Brent said. "He can really score it and handles the ball well. He's a scoring point-combo guard. His work ethic is really, really, really good. He's in the gym at 5 a.m. every morning. It's unbelievable." Newman now holds offers from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Georgetown, and NC State.
