When Charlie Weis visited McNeil's high school in May, the standout cornerback didn't get much of an opportunity to speak with the new Irish coach, but during McNeil's recent trip to South Bend the standout corner spoke to Weis at length and had this to say about him:
"I liked him a lot; he seemed like a real genuine guy. He meant everything that he was telling me.
"I didn't get to see much of the city," continue McNeil. "But it didn't seem that much different than North Carolina. We were around campus a lot, but it's definitely something I could get used to.
McNeil had previously mentioned Virginia and Notre Dame as his favorites, so I asked how this trip affected his decision.
"Overall I like them both," Raeshon responded. "I'm going to take a visit up to Virginia Tech in a little bit. Those are the ones I'm really interested in as of now.
"Tennessee asked me to come down on June18th, but I was able to make it. I haven't talked to them about going again, so I'm not sure about them.
McNeil confirmed that his was still planning and attending a school that is out of state.
Comment: McNeil is a must and it looks like the Irish will have a very good shot at landing him, although Virginia, his early favorite will provide plenty of competition. I believe Raeshon is looking to get his decision over fairly soon, as I think the recruiting process is wearing on him.
