Default Re: 2015 Commitment - Dexter Neal, Jr.

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but the ESPN Jr. 300 came out yesterday and Neal is ranked 165th overall in the class of 2015 with a scout grade of 81 and 4 stars. I know ESPN isn't the most reputable source when it comes to recruiting (see Blackshear at 59th overall), but still pretty cool that our first commit in the 2015 class is getting a good early rating.

Blackshear committed first, but yes it is cool to see Neal getting some recognition. Also cool that in July 2013 we already have 3 commitments for 2015 and they're all 4-star or 5-star rated players.

Default Re: 2015 Commitment - Dexter Neal, Jr.

Chris Clark said he believed that at the end of August when the 2015 recruit's initial rankings came out we would have all 4 star or better with Blackshear a potential 5 star. I'm putting this here because that means Rivals believes he is a 4 star player and 247 has him at a 3 star. All in all he is one hell of a player.

I like the number he wears and he's already a big receiver! By the time he arrives in Columbia he'll be that Alshon size and toughness! Hands look good too!

Quote:
Class of 2015 USC commitment WR DJ Neal of Stone Mountain, GA has been committed to USC since May. He continues to hear from other schools but calls his commitment, “81 to 83 percent.” Neal recently traveled to Columbia for USC’s final home game against Clemson. “I really enjoyed it,” he said. “I spent the night so I got to chill with the players in the locker room and in the dorm room. I really like it there..” Other schools contacting Neal include Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. “I’ve talked a little with some other coaches but I’ve mostly been concentrating on working out and hanging in Columbia,” Neal said. He has plans to visit Tennessee and Vanderbilt this off-season.

"81-83%?" LOL gotta love teenagers

Thought this kid was a bit more solid. Definitely sounds like he is going to take his sweet time before making that final final decision.

He will be a Gamecock. Steve Spurrier Jr. and Mangus/Adams will not let him slip away.

hahahahahaha, jig is up.

Seriously, Neal said last week he's 80% committed to USC, so yeah, it's not 100% but it's good, it's real damn good for a 17 yr old to be 80% sure about anything. He mentioned tenn in the same article.

Neal is going to be a Gamecock, everything is good, nothing has changed today with him and USC.

Teams like tenn and uga who are in dumpsters that are on fire right now turn to other programs to look at who's committed to them and try to sway their recruits or create friction to get the recruit to give them a shot.

Teams like uga and tenn often do that b/c they weren't good evaluators of players before and got themselves into that mess in the 1st place. lulz.

Maybe SGF has spoken to spurrier again. Then again it is more of just trying to get people worked up.

Neal said he was 80-85% committed to Carolina. Doesn't exactly seem like a decommitt to me.

*Dexter Neal (Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson), a South Carolina commitment, also has impressive size at 6-2, 197 pounds and while he might not be a true vertical threat, Neal is very quick and used his huge hands to impress in practice and in the game. During practice Neal stated he was 80 to 85 percent committed to the Gamecocks, and mentioned Tennessee was making a push.
