The Texas Longhorns lost a player with a ton of potential in former 2015 signee Ryan Newsome after he announced he would transfer from the school a little over a week ago.
Now, it looks like he is not far from my making the decision on his future home.
Newsome took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he was down to his final two schools with both of them being in Power Five conferences. He has cut his list from six schools down to Michigan State and Arizona State.

Right now, it looks like Michigan State could be the favorite to land Ryan Newsome. He made this apparent when he spoke at length with the Lansing State Journal, explaining that they were first in line in the chance to jump at the talented receiver from Aledo, Texas.
“MSU, apparently, they’ve wanted me since high school but never extended the offer since they thought I’d never leave Texas,” Newsome said. “I guess they were right. But this time, they were the first school to reach out to me.”
This could be a huge boost for the Spartans, who are looking for their next great receiver after losing Aaron Burbridge to graduation last year. However, he would have to wait at least one year before playing as Newsome would have to sit out the 2016 season due to NCAA transfer rules and would have three years of eligibility remaining in 2017.
During the 2015 season, Newsome caught four passes for 23 yards.
