Ryan Newsome commits to ASU after considering Michigan State

Ryan Newsome, who is related to NFL great Ozzie Newsome, won't be coming to East Lansing.

With the college football season inching closer, the Michigan State Spartans may be done adding new players to the roster.

One such player MSU was looking at was Texas Longhorns receiver Ryan Newsome. He's leaving UT after one season, and the Spartans were the first school to contact Newsome after he made his transfer intentions known. Newsome was also scheduled to visit East Lansing at some point, but it looks like that won't happen.

On Saturday, Newsome announced his commitment to the Arizona State Sun Devils following a visit to Tempe this week.

As a freshman at UT, Newsome played in just five games with five receptions for 28 yards while returning six kicks for 110 yards. The former top-250 recruit and four-star prospect is also a cousin of Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end and current Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome.

Newsome likely will have to sit out the 2016 season, per NCAA transfer rules, so this wasn't going to be anyone MSU got on the field this year.
