In-Person Evaluation: Terrell Newby

Terrell Newby

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade tailback Terrell Newby is having a tremendous senior season that included an eight-touchdown performance earlier this month. Look inside for an in-depth scouting report on the talented running back...

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade tailback Terrell Newby put on one of the most impressive single-game performances that I have ever seen in a blowout victory over Studio City (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake earlier this month.

The Chaminade standout had 16 carries for 360 yards and eight touchdowns in the win, showing why he has become one of the most sought after backs on the West Coast, with Cal, Nebraska, UCLA, Washington and Oregon in the mix.

Even before his eye-popping eight-touchdown performance, Newby was the top all-around back that I had seen in person this season. The 5-10, 180-pound tailback is physical enough to grind out tough yards between the tackles and also has the speed to get to the edge and outrun defenders for big gains, as he showed several times in the video below.

Newby displayed good vision and speed in the big win over Harvard-Westlake, with touchdown runs of: 10, 16, 18, 20, 32, 68, 79, and 80 yards.

Along with this solid combination of speed and power, Newby's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield as well as rush 20-plus times a game is what makes him the most complete back that I have seen in person.

He has good hands, is a smooth route runner and could be a solid option as a third down back early in his college career.
