His speed off the ball enabled Neil to collect about 9 tackles, a couple of quarterback hurries, a tackle for loss, and a fumble recovery for the North's squad only touchdown.
He was originally scheduled to visit Chapel Hill this Friday (January 9th) but has modified his plans just a bit.
"I am going to visit Duke with a teammate on January 9th and 10th. After that, I'll take my visit to Chapel Hill on January 11th and 12th. That will allow me to take in the UNC-Connecticut basketball game," he said.
There has been speculation that North Carolina has been his leader up to this point but Neil says he is all even with his top five or six.
"I read on the internet that someone said that North Carolina was my leader but that is not true. I don't currently have a leader. I like Michigan State, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama," he said.
Neil attributes much of his success to his speed. "I have run as low as a 4.79 forty-yard dash. Most schools are recruiting me as a defensive end. I'm 6-2 and ¾ and weigh about 250 pounds.
Neil spent some time living in Greensboro, N.C. until his mother moved to Georgia. He still has a brother that lives in Greensboro.
"My mom will accompany on my official visits. Coach Brewer is my primary recruiter from North Carolina. I am looking for a school that provides the best combination of academics and football. I would also like to play early. North Carolina is a school that has everything that I am looking for."
