Having already suffered a significant shoulder injury which cost him the ’10-’11 season Harvard-Westlake’s Derick Newton had every reason to struggle in ’11-’12. Not content to rely on post-injury rust as an excuse to under-perform, Newton came back firing on all cylinders and reemerged as a bona fide D1 basketball prospect. Averaging 17.1 Points and 6.9 Rebounds Newton’s season was highlighted (statistically) by a breakout (30) Point (10) Rebound performance in his team’s 84-83 win over Compton Dominguez (Ca.). Looking to build upon last season’s resurgence Newton strives to “average a double-double” as he figures to pace the Wolverines in ’12-13 and pick up the slack left after the departure of 4-Star big man Zeno Edosomwan. A strong sophomore showing may have placed Newton back on the radar of many D1 programs. Equalling, or possibly even besting, those numbers during his junior campaign would not only cement Newton’s stature as a legit D1 prospect, it could also land him a spot among ’14s elite recruits.

A Division 1 college football scholarship is a rare commodity. Rarer yet is a D1 scholarship from a high-profile university steeped in football tradition along the lines of a University of Southern California. Takes a special skill-set and significant productivity on the part of a football recruit to garner the attention of the college football elite. A (4.5) 40 is a good start. A max bench press of 300lbs with a personal body weight of just 175lbs doesn’t hurt. On the productivity side, needing just (50) receptions to amass (1,009) receiving yards fits the bill. Taking those (50) receptions a step further in registering a staggering (17) receiving TD’s….now you’ve taken “productivity” to Madden ’12 levels. Steven Mitchell is a 5’11 175lb Wide Receiver graduating with the Class of 2013. His God-given physical gifts are abundant and his ability to make use of the gifts with a football in his hands borders on the absurd. Looking to join the ranks of Keyshawn Johnson, Mike Williams, Lynn Swann, and Dwayne Jarrett, Mitchell committed to the University of Southern California Trojans and looks to add his name to the list of Trojan greats.
