Did it live up to his expectations?
"I always heard it was better at night and I was very impressed with Death Valley at night," said the nation's No. 1 center prospect from Collins, Miss. "It's hard to top Death Valley. The fans are loud and I ca see why other teams don't like to play there."
McNeil is very familiar with LSU and everything the Tigers have to offer from the several unofficial trips he made in the past. Top of the line facilities are very important and he said he saw some of the best he has ever seen over the weekend.
"Coach Saban showed me the blueprints for the new football complex they are building and it impressive," he said. "They already have nice facilities but that is big. They have a huge weight room and I've been all over the South but their academic center is the nicest one I've seen yet."
LSU tight end Mit Cole hosted McNeil on his visit and when asked what he would rate the visit on a scale of 1 to 10 McNeil replied, "A 10."
McNeil has now visited Mississippi State, Florida and LSU with Florida State and Tennessee in line to get his final two visits. However, there has been a little shakeup in those plans. He has replaced Florida State with USC (11/27) and will wrap things up with his visit to Tennessee the second week in December.
It's been hard to get a good read on which way he is leaning and while he was not ready to name a leader he did give a slight indication of where LSU stands.
"Right now, I'm going to take all of my visits and then go from there," McNeil said. "I don't have a clear cut leader but the visit to LSU kind of answered some questions I had. I could definitely see myself playing there."
