Michigan’s Pat White?

Rich Rodriguez has found his quarterback. Kevin Newsome, a four star quarterback from Chesapeake, Virginia reportedly committed to Michigan earlier today, according to Newsome is listed at 6’3” and 210 pounds. He is a prototypical dual-threat quarterback, having thrown for 1500 yards and rushed for 600 yards as a junior in high school. Newsome is the 39th rated player in the 2009 class and the fourth quarterback listed overall on Newsome told, “I love the winning tradition of Michigan. I really believe Michigan is the godfather of college football, and that’s what makes the Michigan-Ohio State game so notorious.” The verbal commitment by Newsome is a huge coup for Rodriguez. With the lack of quarterback depth on the current roster (Threet, Sheridan, Feagin, and Cone), Newsome could come in next year and play significant minutes. Well done, Rich Rod!
