Expert Analysis: Neal to Syracuse

Scout's Michael Clark breaks down what Syracuse is getting in versatile athlete Moe Neal.

Three-star athlete Moe Neal has been a top target in the 2016 class for Syracuse for a long time. On Saturday, he announced his decision to play college football for the Orange.

Syracuse will use him at express back, formerly called h-back, which is a hybrid of a slot receiver and running back. It gives Neal the ability to make plays on the ground and through the air, which perfectly fits with his skill set.

Scout recruiting analyst Michael Clark has seen Neal in person multiple times, and believes Syracuse is getting a big time offensive playmaker.

"Neal is a versatile prospect, who can beat you as a running back, wide receiver and kick returner. He has good speed and quickness and is threat to score every time he touches the ball. Neal shows good vision and the ability to make people miss.

"He is a polished route-runner and catches the ball well. Neal needs to continue add weight and get stronger, but his best football is ahead of him and he should become a major playmaker in college."
