Clemson last week offered DL Alim McNeill of Raleigh joining the likes of USC, Penn State, Michigan, Boston College, Louisville, Duke, Kentucky, NC State, Virginia Tech and Florida State on his offer list. He plans to visit the Tigers this Saturday.McNeill said the offer from the Tigers came thru his coach and when he called Brent Venables he got the official word that he wanted him in the program.
“He likes how versatile I am and how much strength and speed I display on the field and believes I can be an impact player for them,” McNeill said. “It’s special with them being national champs. I see how they send a lot of their D-linemen to the league and how they develop and how great they all are.”
McNeill visited Clemson last season for the Pitt game so he already has a feel for the school and he said he talks with the Tigers every day.
USC also is recruiting him hard and he visited for the spring game and he met with Will Muschamp and Lance Thompson. He plans a return visit in the summer.
“I feel like I could play in that defense pretty well,” McNeill said.
McNeill visited Virginia Tech over the weekend and also has been to Florida and Florida State. He does not have a favorite and will announce his decision either December 3rd or 10th. He’s also a baseball player and is not graduating early.
Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt and NC State were in last week to check on him.
