By: RYAN McMULLEN Woody Newton, the 6-foot-8 forward from Mt. Zion Prep (MD) and Team Takeover AAU, announced his commitment to Syracuse on Tuesday. Newton picked the Orange over Arkansas, Cincinnati, Maryland, Seton Hall, and Virginia Tech.
Jim Boeheim and his staff are getting a forward who has a versatile skill set headlined by athleticism who displays a consistent jumper. According to 247Sports, Newton is a four-star prospect, ranked No. 79 nationally, and is the No. 3 player in Maryland. Newton is the first commit for SU’s 2020 class. They are still pursuing four-stars Andre Jackson, Cliff Omoruyi, Elijah Hutchins-Everrett, Noah Collier, and Jamari Sibley.
