Former Florida QB seeks fresh start after arrest
"Newton, kicked off the team last year after he was arrested and charged with stealing another student's laptop, led Blinn College (Texas) to the junior college national championship earlier this month and is being courted by several Football Bowl Subdivision teams.
The junior college signing period began Wednesday, and according to Newton's father, the 6-foot-6, 240-pound versatile quarterback is considering Arizona, Auburn, Louisville, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma and a few others."
Sounds like from the article the arrest was a bad mixup, but I'd check into this guy before making any quick decisions. Nonetheless, as he was Tebow's understudy, I would imagine Strong would have an inside track on grabbing him. As he is currently a JUCO player, he would be immediately eligible and would certainly breath some life into the quarterback position here: this is no ordinary JUCO transfer, people. Maybe Z Stoudt caught wind of this?
