2015 Watch: OL Marcus McNeil

San Antonio (Tex.) Madison 2015 offensive lineman Marcus McNeil is already looking ahead to college, naming two Pac-12 programs that have his attention. More on the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder inside…

San Antonio (Tex.) Madison 2015 offensive tackle Marcus McNeil is a prospect that has head coach Jim Streety excited about the future of the Mavericks' program.

"McNeil is a guy we carried on Varsity last season. He didn't play as much as those other guys, but he's a big guy who will have the chance to be a really dominant offensive lineman in the future," said Streety.

The 6-foot-3, 290-pound prospect, who mainly sees time at right tackle, has put in a lot of time throughout the offseason.

"I want to get faster; when I get to the next level, I want to be able to do it very fast, very precise, and know exactly who I'm going to hit. As a line, we've been working on being very aggressive with our first step, on that point of attack and knowing that you are going to win from that first step. Our whole line is working on being more aggressive, being able to attack from the first strike," he said.

It is that aggressiveness on the field that McNeil considers one of his strongest talents at the position.

"I don't stop until they have blown the whistle. I'm a great pass-blocker; it's one of my favorite things to do on the offensive line," he said.

McNeil has given thought to playing college ball and names two Pac-12 programs at the top of his favorites list.

"I really hope to hear from California and Stanford. I like that California is a go-get it team. You can see their camaraderie on the team both on and off the field. The school has tradition and history and it's a great degree to have.

"With Stanford, it's my favorite school. It has a rich tradition and history, too, and I absolutely love the campus. There is no stopping their team," he said.

Off the field, McNeil displays that same ambition, as the high school sophomore has created his own business.

"I own my own bow tie business. I just show people what I've been making. I did some for prom. I made my bow tie and made some for the other football players. I wore one for my dad's wedding, and ever since then I have loved them," he said.
