“I got to spend about 30 minutes with Coach Young in the defensive line room. He just showed me the scouting report and went through a few plays but you could tell he was in game mode,” Newell told Rivals.com.
“Oklahoma State has always been in my top schools and any time I go down there I like it more and more.”
Newell has more than a dozen offers from the likes of Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas State, among others.
