Communication Breakdown

Syracuse has an offer out to the No. 4 safety in the country in LaDarrell McNeil and we wanted to find out what his interest level was in the Orange given what a highly coveted prospect he is around the nation. His answer actually came as a bit of a surprise to us on Sunday afternoon.

LaDarrell McNeil, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound safety from AC Maceo Smith High School in Dallas, Texas talked to us on Sunday about his Syracuse offer, however the answer we got wasn't what was expected.

"I have an offer from Syracuse, but they haven't been showing any interest in me, so if they don't talk to me then I can't learn anything about them," McNeil said. "I mean, I'm definitely open to all of the schools that have offered me at this point."

We asked McNeil if he knew much about Syracuse and he did say that he has followed the team.

"I've watched them on television before and actually know a bit about them, but like I said, I've never heard anything from the coaches there, so an offer isn't really an offer to me unless I talk to someone even if it's made to me. I've just been focusing on the schools that are talking to me right now."

That obviously wasn't the most positive of updates with the four-star recruit, but as with any recruiting update, we try to keep the news as objective as we can here.
