Two more big offers have come for star running back Shawnbrey McNeal and the 5-foot-9, 181-pounder is starting to have the offer list of one of the nation's premier high school runners.
Oklahoma State and Kansas State were the first two in the books, but McNeal has now added two more from distant schools – Florida and Ole Miss. The quiet McNeal is not leaning heavily to one school or another, but the new offers have him feeling good about recruiting so far.
"I like them a lot but everybody in my mind is about the same right now," McNeal said. "There aren't any big favorites for me."
McNeal's step father is a big fan of the Texas Longhorns. Growing up in the state, McNeal says that if anyone had an edge, it would be UT.
"My step dad loves them," McNeal said about the Horns. "He's trying to get me to go there. I like them. I think they may be next to offer, but I'm not going to guess or anything. I've got to see how the spring goes first."
One other school was home to his favorite running back.
"The Florida offer was a surprise, but when OSU offered, I was really excited," McNeal said. "Barry Sanders was and still is my favorite running back, so that was big for me."
McNeal says that he hasn't been able to get out of town for many visits due to his track schedule but will try and make some camps like the NIKE Training Camp in College Station.
