Highly rated Indiana forward commits to ASU women’s basketball (Arizona Republic, 4/4/2020)
Newman is a 6-3 forward from Indianapolis, who chose ASU over Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina. . . .
“The thing that stuck out for me from the first time I talked to Charli (Turner Thorne) was her energy,” Newman said of ASU’s coach. “She’s such a charasmatic person and so easy to connect with. That immediately caught my attention.
“As I researched ASU more and more, I found it was the best college in the country for sustainability. I have a tremendous passion for the environment. I knew it was the right place for me. It checked all the boxes. After a home visit with the staff, I knew if Charli were anywhere in the country, I would want to play for her.”
