Florida RB Nets Pitt Offer

Monticello (FL) Jefferson County running back DeVondrick Nealy recently named a top five, which still stands. Nealy recently picked up an offer from Pitt. Though his top five hasn't changed, Nealy says anything can happen.

DeVondrick Nealy rushed for 1,904 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior. He added another 211 yards receiving, to go with four touchdowns. He was named second-team all-state and first-team all-conference.

Then, the offers came in. He has stated a top five of Arkansas, Ole Miss, Michigan, Iowa State and Auburn. Arkansas has consistently been his leader, yet Nealy would still like to look at his other options.

"Everything can change pretty quickly, in recruiting," Nealy said, listing a reason why his top five can change. "It can change in the next 30 minutes. It's not very solid. Arkansas is very high on my list, and the other five are about the same."

Pittsburgh is one of the recent schools to chime in with an offer. Linebackers coach Bernard Clark, a native Floridian, extended Nealy the offer.

"I talked to him one or two times," Nealy said. "He's a very nice dude, very good to talk to."

Since then, Nealy is doing some research on Pittsburgh.

"Pittsburgh, they have a great school," Nealy said. "I did a lot of research before Pittsburgh offered. As a matter of fact, after I do some more research, they could be in my top five."

After doing some research, one thing Nealy has picked up on is the recent running back success on Dion Lewis and LeSean McCoy.

"I know they have a great running back, in Lewis," Nealy said. "He's a great dude, and the best running back in college football right now. I like his running style, how he runs and everything."

Nealy also said he wouldn't rule out a visit to Pittsburgh, if he gains some more interest in the school.
