    I guess you could say my journalism career began about the time I won “Best Storyteller” in my kindergarten class. I’m a proud graduate of Winston-Salem State University, where I worked at the school newspaper for four years, three as sports editor and one as editor-in-chief.

Jaden Newman is only half as old as the average college freshman, but she’s already got a big leg up on the competition. The fourth grader received her first recruitment material from the University of Miami at the tender age of nine.

So how does a hoopster who hasn’t even been alive as long as Lebron James has been in the NBA get looks from a major college basketball program? Well, starting on the high school varsity team and averaging double figures was pretty good start.

Newman took an unofficial visit to the school on June 10.
