The Cam Newton saga continues.
A recruiting site for Mississippi State reported Tuesday that Newton’s decision has been delayed. The site quotes Newton’s father as saying the announcement, which had previously been set for Thursday, won’t happen until the end of the week at the earliest.
This news can only be good for Oklahoma, one of three schools Newton is believed to be considering along with Auburn and Miss. St. He has taken officials to all three campuses.
However, a report by a college recruiting affiliate site of ESPN.com reported earlier this week that Newton had eliminated OU from consideration, was going to make an announcement Thursday and was strongly leaning toward Auburn. Of course, the site that reported that was affiliated with Auburn. So who knows what to believe.
A delay could mean that Newton needs more time to choose between Miss. St. and Auburn. But it could also mean that OU is back in the picture.
Until Newton makes a decision, we won’t know. But as long as he remains undecided, you have to believe OU is still in the picture.
In other recruiting news, No. 1 wideout Darius White is expected to announce his college intentions during Saturday’s Under Armour All-American game on ESPN.
At the outset of his recruiting, OU appeared to be his clear leader. But in the last few weeks, Oklahoma State has jumped into the picture along with Texas and LSU. It was believed that OU was out of the picture, when White canceled a visit to Norman to go to Stillwater instead. But White has told multiple recruiting outlets that OU remains in the mix.
Saturday, we’ll find out if it’s enough to garner his commitment.
