Malik Newman Regarded By Some As The #1 8th Grader In America
Malik Newman is a 6’4 guard from Jackson, Mississippi with a lot of game. The 8th Grader rocks with MBA and has received rave reviews from some of the biggest scouts in youth basketball. Prep Spotlight founder and Nike Scout Vince Baldwin is intrigued by Newman’s game and potential. “Malik Newman is one of the best offensive guards I’ve seen in a long time. He can score the ball from all three levels (mid range, deep and at the basket). His jump shot might be one of his biggest weapons” Baldwin said.
In terms of the future Baldwin feels Malik has a chance to be one of the best. “If he continues to improve he has a chance to become something special. He’s the best 8th Grade offensive guard I’ve seen since Tyreke Evans” Baldwin finished. Basketball Spotlight will give our own assessment of Newman when we watch him in person at the John Lucas camp. Check out some of his highlights and remember where you saw him first.
