A native of Athens, Ga., Newell is the No. 10 overall player in the country, according to the On3 Industry Rankings. Newell is ranked as a five-star by all four major recruiting media services, making him a Five-Star Plus+ recruit.
Newell discusses each of his final four schools in an exclusive interview here (On3+).
The five-star forward has officially visited each of his finalists. He says he does not have a commitment timeframe in mind yet.
Along with his finalists, Newell also received offers from Indiana, Auburn, Kansas, Michigan, Baylor, and others.
Newell Scouting Report
“Asa Newell is a lengthy forward with a projectable frame. The frame is what you notice from the second he walks on the floor. The lefty has soft touch with range that extends beyond the three-point line, especially off the catch. The jump shot can get inconsistent, would like to see him get the balance right. He is comfortable driving left aggressively. He is an instinctive offensive rebounder, and he is not afraid to mix it up in traffic and hunt put-back dunks. Newell will need to continue developing the right hand and progressing with his middle game. Strength will also be a thing with the 6-foot-9 forward. However, with his size, skill set, and quick-twitch athleticism, when his motor runs hot, there is a lot of production he brings to the court.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
Asa Newell’s On3 NIL Valuation worth over $400K
The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets the standard market NIL value for high school and college-level athletes. A proprietary algorithm, the On3 NIL Valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a specific moment in time.
The On3 NIL Valuation is comprised of many dynamic data points that focus on three primary categories: social media, athletic performance, and endorsements and collectives.
The On3 NIL Valuation is publicly available. Performance, Influence, and Exposure ratings along with the athlete’s personal Brand Value Index and Roster Value Index are available only to the athlete in the “Athlete Verified” private dashboard on the On3 Athlete Network.
