News:Kevin Newsome will play running back in 2013, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Temple is implementing a pro-style offense this year, which left running quarterbacks like Kevin Newsome and Chris Coyer out of place. Newsome will compete with the likes of Kenneth Harper and Jamie Gilmore for snaps, and he's little more than a player to monitor until that competition clears itself up.
News:Kevin Newsome will have a chance in practice to compete for the starting quarterback spot for the Owls, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

News: Newsome plans on leaving Penn State and transferring to another school this upcoming season, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Newsome stated that he will be, "transferring as soon as possible." He didn't mention what school he will be transferring to, so that remains up in the air. But it seems apparent that Newsome will not be in the QB mix for the Nittany Lions.
News: The Patriot-News, citing a report on 247sports.com, claims that Penn State quarterback Kevin Newsome has decided to transfer.
Analysis: This was speculated on back in December, so it's no shocker as Newsome was an odd-man-out in the race to start. What is surprising, is the lack of quarterback depth in Happy Valley. Paul Jones is ineligible, leaving Matt McGloin and Robert Bolden as viable starters. And Bolden hasn't exactly been happy as a clam during his stint.
