While there is no denying that head coach Larry Fedora is doing an outstanding job recruiting his first class at North Carolina, it is also true that you can not get them all. Which is exactly what happened with 2012 class Davonte Neal, a 5’10/180 lbs wide receiver/corner back out of Chaparral High School in Scottsdaly, Az. The young man, who had close to 20 schools looking to have him play for them, decided to go to Notre Dame in the end. From what I have read about the young man from Arizona is that what he may lack in size he more than makes up with the speed, making him a threat in open space and probably going to be very good returner in college. Just like you can not teach height, the same can be said about speed, and that is exactly what Neal has, along to being a good route runner, which just adds to the possibilities that he can have in college.
ESPN has him as a five star recruit and the best at his position. Over at Scout they put him as a four star recruit and fifth best at his role. While Rivals puts Neal as a four star recruit and 17th at his position. And finally, at the newest site for recruiting, 247 Sports, they have the senior as a four star recruit and sixth in his category, however they have him as an ATH and not a WR. Both ESPN and 24/7 Sports have Davonte Neal being the best high school prospect in the state of Arizona.
As usual, once I get more information about any of the players that UNC is looking to get, for either Football or Basketball, I will make sure to post it. Until then, make sure to enjoy the North Carolina vs N.C. State game tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST, which you can see my preview right here on isportsweb.
