Highlight reels: New class of 2023 IU basketball commit Jakai Newton

Indiana picked up a commitment from class of 2023 guard Jakai Newton on Friday afternoon.

Below you can watch extensive video highlights of him over the last year while playing for Newton High School (Covington, Ga.) and the Atlanta Xpress on the Under Armour Circuit.

The 6-foot-3 Newton is ranked the No. 67 overall player in the 2023 class according to the 247Sports Composite, and the No. 12 combo guard.  He is Indiana’s first commit in the 2023 class.

This first cut is from Newton’s sophomore season of high school.

This is from the Ryze Hoops Live Showcase in May.

This one is an extended look that includes footage of multiple players on both teams at the Tip-off Classic in April.  Newton is No. 4 in red.

And finally, a brief reel with some of Newton’s most impressive plays.
