Nebraska Offers Newton’s Darwin Barlow
Darwin Barlow is now the most coveted 2019 East Texas prospect.
Barlow, a 2019 running back for Newton, posted via Twitter on Monday that Nebraska is the latest school to offer him. That makes the Cornhuskers the 15th school to do so, giving Barlow the most offers in the area.
Barlow also holds offers from schools such as Arkansas, Baylor and Oklahoma State, among others.
He was an integral part of Newton's trip to becoming the Class 3A Division II state champions in December. He had 138 yards rushing and a touchdown as the Eagles defeated Gunter, 40-16. He finished 2017 with 38 rushing touchdowns to lead all of East Texas and rushed for 2,246 yards.
The Huskers compete in the Big 10 Conference and went 4-8 in 2017. They hired Scott Frost from UCF in the offseason.
Barlow, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him beginning in December 2018.
