At 6-foot-2, 220-pounds, Daronte McNeil of Northeastern High School in Elizabeth City, N.C., fits the bill. McNeil, who has the ability to run over, around and away from opposing defenders, rushed for more than 2,500 yards and 26 touchdowns
"I run with power and can make people miss," McNeil told InsideTheVille.com on Thursday.
His impressive junior campaign has drawn the attention of a number of schools throughout the east and south, with a trio of programs extending early scholarship offers.
Despite his size, McNeil is surprisingly elusive with defenders bearing down on him and makes a quick move to break arm tackles. He moves very well for his size, but needs to find that extra gear that could make him a very special player.
