TE Josh McNeil Profile
Former East Carolina commitment Josh McNeil doesn't have much
football playing experience under his belt, but that hasn't stopped
several schools from offering.
The Hillside High School [Durham, N.C.] junior holds offers from Clemson,
Georgia, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Clemson offered about two weeks ago.
"It was kind of a surprise, because I didn't talk to Clemson much until
then," he in a recent interview with CUTigers.
He added, "I talked to just about the whole coaching staff. They kept it
short, brief and honest with me. They told me what I wanted and needed to
hear. They told me I would be able to play quickly there. That's the most
important part of my decision making, for my college I'm going to."
What does the 6-foot-5, 240-pound prospect know about Clemson?
"I know they had the No. 1 tight end go to the NFL, Dwayne Allen. I know
they've got the really good receivers. I've always liked Clemson. They've
always been a good program and they've always played good football."
A Clemson visit is on the horizon for the four-star.
"I know I'm going. I haven't made a date, but sometime between the end of
March and middle of April," he said.
McNeil has visited North Carolina, N.C. State, East Carolina and N.C.
State for their junior days.
"I was thinking about making a top-five between the end of April and
beginning of May," he said. "Then, make my decision at the end of the
summer or at the end of the high school season."
As a junior, he had 60 catches for 600 yards and seven touchdowns.
