WMA Post-Grad Makes Pick
Wilbraham & Monson Academy post-graduate forward Derick Newton made a verbal commitment to Stetson on Friday night.
Newton had only been in the New England prep ranks for little over a month but had already made a strong impression with college coaches, drawing a strong amount of attention from low to mid-major division I programs.
The six-foot-six forward has a terrific basketball body with muscle mass and definition alike to match his very long arms. His skill set includes range to the three-point line but also a patented mid-range game with a soft shooting touch off the dribble.
Prior to arriving at Wilbraham and Monson, Newton previously starred at Harvard-Westlake in California. He also spent time with the Dream Vision AAU program where he played alongside the likes of Stephen Zimmerman in the summer of 2013.
