QB Tony McNeal Profile
On Friday, CUTigers caught up with McNeal for his thoughts on throwing to four-star Charone Peake and five-star Sammy Watkins and how he's feeling about his performance this week.
"It was good. Both those guys are the top receivers in the nation and they just go get it," McNeal said of Peake and Watkins. "It just makes life easier for a quarterback."
Of course, he'd love to be throwing to those two over the next several years.
"If those guys were to come down to Clemson and be Tigers, that would be good for the upcoming years," McNeal said.
He enjoyed returning to Clemson and spending time with the coaches he's committed to joining next year.
"Just being around the coaches, it was a wonderful thing—being in the environment," McNeal said. "Getting to know other players and other people, being around the competition at camp, that was kind of fun."
Pleased with the way he played during the two days he participated in the camp, McNeal wasn't satisfied with his showing.
"I thought I did well. I just came out there and showed Clemson what all I could do. There are some things I need to work on," he said.
Offensive coordinator/quarterback coach Billy Napier was right there beside his future student throughout the sessions.
"He was talking to me about dipping my shoulder and keeping my shoulders open so I can make the passes to the left-side and not just be looking at half the field," McNeal said.
Wearing a bulky knee brace on his right knee, because of an ACL injury last fall, McNeal continues working towards having his knee return to full strength.
"It's been good for the most part," he said. "There were some drills I struggled with because of my knee, but I'm starting to try to see what I can do on it."
