Receiving national attention, Julian was asked to be on the Steve Harvey and Ellen Degeneres show, while appearing on multiple headlines.

Julian Newman NBL
Many people are wondering what Julians next steps will be since he has graduated from college. His father Jamie has claimed that he plans on playing overseas for the NBL, either in the G-League or Australia. Julian had backed those claims and even went on Instagram Live in 2020 stating he planned on playing in Spain, Australia or Japan. There has been speculation that the announcement his father made on Youtube’s ‘Hello Newmans’ about Julian ‘going to Australia’ was false. Jamie made it seem like he was accepted, however nothing had manifested from it. It was assumed that he would receive many college offers. While his dad claimed there were 15 that he turned down, people are beginning to believe that he just didn’t get any at all. To this day, there is no news if he will pursue a professional basketball career.
