Martavious Newby – Im official a OLE MISS REBEL

Washington High senior guard Martavious Newby has committed to Ole Miss, Newby’s high school coach, Fred Horton, said Thursday.

Horton said he talked with Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy on Thursday afternoon and confirmed through Kennedy that Newby, a 6-2, 201-pound combo guard, has committed to the Rebels for the 2012-13 season.

“I just got off the phone with Kennedy about three or four minutes ago,” Horton said. “He’s committed. He’s going to Ole Miss.

“Kennedy was very excited, man. They’ve spent a lot of time and they’ve showed they wanted the kid.”

Newby, a two-sport standout who was unavailable for comment Thursday, averaged 22.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 4.7 steals as a junior at Washington. His stock soared this summer because of his standout play for the Memphis YOMCA on the AAU circuit. Rivals.com rates him a three-star prospect.

Newby said last month at the Nike Peach Jam in North Augusta, S.C., that he had offers from Ole Miss, Auburn, Arkansas and Missouri.
