"We think he's a fast defensive-end who played tackle in high school," Coach Jody Allen said. "He's a very good at shedding blocks and he's a guy that likes contact. Kevin is very good a stopping the run and rushing the passer."
Coach Allen loves McNeil's speed and size.
"He's a big-guy that runs in the 4.5-4.6 range," Allen said. "I'm very excited about him."
As a senior, the 1st team all-state standout recorded 39 tackles, 17 tackles for a loss, 11 quarterback pressures and seven quarterback sacks.
