Late last month, the Indiana Hoosiers put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Mike Woodson and his new staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Jakai Newton.

Newton comes out of Covington, Georgia and is largely unranked by the national recruiting services. However, he’s listed at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds by 247Sports and seems to be one of the best players in the state of Indiana for the 2023 cycle. Along with Indiana, he also currently has offers from Auburn, Cincinnati, Georgia, and Ole Miss among others.
Indiana currently has no commitments in its 2023 recruiting class, which isn’t a surprise given the program’s recent coaching turnover. However, fans will hope Newton can change that soon with a commitment. That would continue a recent hot streak for the Hoosiers on the recruiting trail and hopefully build off the recent Woodson hire. Of course, we will have to wait and see if that ends up happening. Newton currently has no Crystal Ball selections on 247Sports.
