"They're Real High On My List"

DeSmet 2012 WR prospect Durron Neal talks about his recent trip to Missouri

On Saturday, 2012 WR Durron Neal  6'0"  185   4.49   St. Louis (MO) DeSmet was among those who visited Missouri, and took in the MU-KU basketball game.  Afterwards, he talked to ShowMeMizzou about his visit.

"I liked it," said the articulate sophomore.  "I met Jeremy Maclin.  I met Brad Smith, too.  He's big!  I wasn't expecting him to be that big............. That was a real good experience.  Not too many kids get to have that experience.  I'm blessed to have had it."

Durron said that because he had already seen the campus, he stayed with some of the players while  his parents looked around campus.

Neal saw some of the coaches, and met some players he hadn't met before, and some players he already knew.  He said, "I talked to Wes Kemp and Robert Steeples (from DeSmet).  And, I met Derrick Washington and Aldon Smith." 

I asked Durron Neal how he was feeling about Missouri.  He replied, "Yeah.  They're real high on my list.  My parents really liked it, too.  My mom really liked it.  That's where my mom said I'm going to end up.  She really thinks I'm going to end up at Mizzou."

Although Neal sounds like his mind is made up, he indicated that he doesn't really have a time-table for making a final decision, and that he just wants to take his time about it.
