Newburg was, unfortunately, hobbled by injury as a senior in high school, so it wasn’t the campaign that most wanted to see. But he was still fairly productive in limited action. Watching his junior and senior film both, it seems like he will need some time to add on to his frame. He’s listed by Michigan at 6’5″ and 237 lbs. after enrolling early, but he’s probably shorter and lighter, at least during the season. That size will only get you on the field if you’re extremely athletic, which Newburg isn’t. I do think he’s better than his senior film shows, and I still like him as a prospect, but a redshirt is almost certain.
