CB Levin Neal (5-11, 185 pounds, 4.4-seconds in the 40) of Ashley High School in Wilmington, NC now favors Clemson, Maryland, Virginia Tech and NC State (order mentioned).
"My recruiting is going good," said Neal. "Right now, I like Clemson, Maryland, Virginia Tech and NC State. Everyone is even right now. Where ever I fit in at- that's where I'm going to go. I want to be able to play next year."
"I like Clemson because they throw the ball and spread it out on offense.
"Maryland, they just win football games.
"NC State has got a good defense. They like me there but I'm trying to get on both sides of the ball. NC State's a little bit different than the others because their recruiting coach is a defensive backs coach and he's trying to get me to play for him. But I know when I go down there and talk to all the other coaches, I can find out where they want me.
"Virginia Tech doesn't throw the ball the way I'd like them to because they're more of a running team. All the wide receivers, when I was up there on my official visit, they seemed frustrated."
Neal injured his ankle earlier this year and has been hard at work in the hopes of returning to the gridiron before the end of the 2004 season.
"I should be back in about two weeks. My rehab is going good but my foot got infected so that kind of slowed the healing process down. I've been jogging the last two weeks though. I should be able to make a couple games by the end of the season and be strong by the playoffs."
Neal already has one official visit under his belt and plans to set the rest of his trips in the near future.
"I've already made an official visit to Virginia Tech, but I'll set the rest up later in the season. I haven't had a chance to see Clemson or Maryland's campus yet."
Earlier this year, Neal had expressed interest in Georgia, Florida State and Florida. He said he felt the injury had forced all three to take a wait and see approach.
"I hadn't heard from those guys in a while," said Neal. "I think it was because of the injury so I'm not counting on them offering me."
