Newell says USC still in it

August 18, 2013 

DL Peyton Newell of Hiawatha, KS has been very quiet regarding his recruiting in recent weeks because of his focus on school and his upcoming season.

"There's nothing really new," he said Sunday night. "Just waiting for August 30th," when he will make his announcement.

Newell confirmed again USC and Nebraska are the top two with him and he's been in touch with USC recruiter GA Mangus. "I've had several letters and messages from coach Mangus a few times," he said.

And Newell believes he's still wanted by the Gamecocks. "Yeah, I definitely get that impression that they do," he said.

Newell has also had Kansas and Kansas State on his short list.
