"Individually, man, we are working hard," he added. "Damien (Lawry, a 5-10, 175-pound receiver and corner) has a couple of interceptions and he scored a couple of touchdowns the other night. Damien has been playing really good. I'm averaging about 10 tackles a game, so it's good right now."
McNeil said he has not been to a Tennessee game and is still working with the Vols on his official visit.
"We've talked about the schedule and trying to work out when I can get out there. I don't know for sure, but I would like to try and get out there for a game and make my official visit when I can see them play."
McNeil said he is normally a football watcher but he was at a friend's 16th birthday party this weekend and did not get a chance to see any football.
"I normally watch football and I love to watch college football," he added."
McNeil said the recruiting process has been smooth since he committed to Tennessee, but he admitted that he still gets a lot of calls from schools and recruiters wanting to know if anything has changed. McNeil said he is firmly committed to Tennessee.
