"I thought I would let you know that I got offered by Arkansas," stated Neal to HawkeyeInsider.com. "I feel good, because it's my first SEC offer. Arkansas is definitely a place that I have looked into. I haven't visit them yet, but since they offered me, Coach McGee is already sitting up visit for me this year."
At 6-foot-1, 187 pounds, the junior already held verbal offers from Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Iowa. In 2009, Neal collected 953 all-purpose yards and 15 touchdowns at wide receiver and punt returner. This season, he will also take some duties as a wild-cat quarterback.
"Practices are going really well, the guys are really starting to come together as a team. A lot of guys are competing at certain positions and it's making practices a lot more fun and intense," said Neal.
Neal and the Spartans' season get underway August 28th against Hazelwood Central.
