"The opportunity to play was there," McNeil said of the Pirates. "I was comfortable with the guys and I think they treated me well. That's special because that's the family. If they like you and you're not even in the school, imagine what it'll be like when they get there. Plus, I have family members that live 20 minutes away."
He averaged 18 points and 6 assists last year.
In addition to the signing of McNeil, the Pirates also signed 6-4 swingman Frank Robinson out of Maine Central. Last year at MCI, Robinson averaged 17 points a game.
