As the May evaluation period approaches, the strong interest of the above schools might evolve into scholarship offers and tough decisions for McNeil. In order to make a decision or separate the programs, he stated that the three biggest factors in his decision making process will be location, playing time, and his relationship with the coaches and players. Regarding the location, he stated that " I would like to go anywhere as long as its not close to home. I would go up to Rutgers even though its still in New Jersey not like a school real close like Temple".

McNeil states that his biggest strength is his confidence. He stated "the reason why is that if I'm going up against some big time receiver, I have the confidence to take on his challenge without any hesitation or nervousness".

During this summer, McNeil plans on attending the MSL Combine at Rutgers and one of the Nike Combines. In addition to the combines, he plans on camping at Boston College.

Note: McNeil also runs the 200Meters. His best time is 22.5 indoor.
