MEMPHIS — Washington High senior guard Martavious Newby has committed to Ole Miss, Newby's high school coach, Fred Horton, said Thursday afternoon.
Horton said he talked with Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy and confirmed through Kennedy that Newby, a 6-foot-2, 201-pound combo guard, has committed to the Rebels.
"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 averaged 22.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 4.7 steals as a junior at Washington.
Newby told The Commercial Appeal last month at the Nike Peach Jam in North Augusta, S.C., he had offers from Ole Miss, Auburn, Arkansas and Missouri.
