Neal Ready to Decide?

Wilmington (NC) Ashley athlete Levin Neal has come back from a terrible leg injury to finish his high school career. Now he's helping Ashley on the hardwood as their basketball season is underway.

"I just got back from our first game, and it went really well," Levin Neal told Pack Pride. "I think we won by 25 points. I had about ten points, some rebounds, and some blocks."

Neal, who broke his leg in the preseason, was able to recover from the injury and play the final five games for Ashley.

He now prepares for the December 18th Shrine Bowl, which he's been selected to play in as a wide receiver.

Neal's one of North Carolina's premier skill position players, doubling as a cornerback and wide receiver for Ashley High School. He ripped off a 4.25 40-yard dash at the Charlotte Shrine Bowl combine, the fastest time at the event, and now prepares for the upcoming game.

"I played limited this season, just a few quarters a game," he said. "I'll be ready for the Shrine Bowl though. They plan on using me at wide receiver, and I'm looking forward to it."

Neal reports offers from Clemson, Virginia Tech, Maryland, NC State, North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, and East Carolina.

However, at this point it looks like one team has a commanding lead, and he'll visit that program this weekend.

"I'm headed to NC State this weekend," Neal said. "They're my leader, and I'm ready to visit them. I actually think I'll be ready to commit after this visit. We'll see how it goes."

So what does he like about the Wolfpack?

"Well, it's close to home and that's important," Neal said. "I also like all the coaches too."

NC State, who had an in-home visit with Neal on Wednesday night, is recruiting him as an athlete. He will be given the chance to play cornerback or slot receiver.


Neal is an excellent student in the classroom and carries a 3.4 grade point average. He will be fully qualified to play as a freshman.
