No. 3-rated Class of 2015 recruit Malik Newman, plans to pay a visit to Lawrence, Kansas.
The 6-3, 180-pound senior from Callaway High in Jackson, Mississippi wrote in his USA Today blog this week: “I’m taking a visit to Ohio State on Jan. 24-26. That’s the only visit that has a date attached to it, but I’ll also be visiting N.C. State, Kentucky and Kansas. I don’t know about the dates right now on those. I haven’t cut my list or anything and that doesn’t mean those schools are my top four or anything like that; they’re just the schools that I’m going to visit for now. I still like other schools, too.
“People always ask me what I like about the different schools and, honestly, I pretty much like the same things about all of them. All of the schools recruiting me are great looks!”
