Neely ready for big year

TreyVon Neely is flying under the radar in Jefferson County, but his opponents know who he is. After this season, people all over Kentucky should know about the Doss linebacker.

TreyVon Neely is flying under the radar in Jefferson County, but his opponents know who he is. After this season, people all over Kentucky should know about the Doss linebacker.

Last year TreyVon Neely had a big season with 94 tackles and 17 tackles for loss. He followed up that performance by heading out to a few camps where he had done a pretty good job.

"I will be attending Tennessee's camp on (today). I also attended the National Underclassmen Top 100 camp. I wonder the leadership award and linebackers MVP. I attended the Nike camp in Atlanta. I went to Kentucky's camp and I really didn't like what I seen," he continued.

And what happened at Kentucky that Neely didn't like?

"My performance wasn't my best, testing wise. But when it came to position drills and one-on-ones I did my thing. I just felt like they overlooked me because I had a bad day testing. But I'm a football player. 40 times don't mean anything when you strap those pads on," he said.

Neely is still not hearing a lot from schools, but he's got an opportunity to make a bigger name for himself this season.

"When it comes to hearing from schools, things are slow. I like being the sleeper. I will be on every school's recruiting board by the middle of the season," said Neely.

And why does Neely believe schools will know all about him?

"I have improved tremendously (this off-season). I've improved from speed to explosiveness. I believe I am finally putting the pieces of the puzzle together," he said.
