Southern Methodist head coach Larry Brown visited Neumann Goretti's South Philadelphia campus on Monday afternoon and offered star basketball player Ja'Quan Newton a scholarship, according to the Saints head coach.

Brown, the former 76ers head coach, took over at SMU in April. 

Last season, the 6-foot-3 guard emerged as one of the city's top players and averaged 16 points per game in leading the Saints to their third straight PIAA Class AAA title.
