Aledo wide receiver Ryan Newsome had delayed the announcement of his top three after winning a state title on Saturday, but did so on Tuesday evening via Twitter:

Long considered a Texas lean, the inclusion of the Longhorns was hardly a surprise. And neither was UCLA, particularly, since the Bruins had hosted Newsome on a good visit over the summer also took an official visit in the beginning of November.
