Dade County star headed to the SEC

The 5' 9" scat back out of Hallandale (FL) went on an official visit to North Carolina over the weekend. He made a decision upon his arrival, but it is not where one would think on the surface.

"I committed to Ole Miss tonight," added the soft spoken Korvic Neat. "I just felt the most comfortable there on my visit. I have a good relationship with the Ole Miss coaches, and I like how they plan to use me in their offense."

Korvic also had a chance to take in a couple of practices that helped influence his decision as Ole Miss was preparing for the Cotton Bowl.

"I was really glad I got to go to those practices. I saw how they used Dexter McCluster, and I think we have a lot of the same attributes. Dexter and I are both small guys trying to make it in a big man's game. I like how they design their scat backs to get the ball in open spaces."

Neat became a hot commodity after tearing it up in the Dade/Broward surrounding area. For the season, he ran 1, 158 yards, 13 TD's on only 94 rushes and had 378 receiving yards and 5 Td's on 15 catches.

Korvic was offered by North Carolina, Rutgers, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Iowa State, and Southern Mississippi during the later part of the season and took visits to Ole Miss, North Carolina, and was scheduled to visit Rutgers next weekend.

Neat will participate in the Dade/Broward County All-Star game and has also been invited to the Under Armor All-Star game in Orlando on January 2nd.
