Collins (Miss.) offensive center Josh McNeil has a list of schools that is beginning to take shape nicely. The list is currently at seven schools and will be whittled down to five in the next couple of months as he decides his official visits. Who is still in the hunt?
“Right now I have a top seven of Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Tennessee and Florida,” McNeil said. “I don’t have a leader right now, I’m still trying to decide which schools will get my official visits.”
McNeil is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com and is the No. 2 center in the country and will likely be ranked as the No. 2 player in the Magnolia State.
“I took an unofficial visit to Georgia this past weekend,” McNeil said. “We left Sunday afternoon and got up there late Sunday night. Monday morning we went and met coach (Mark) Richt. We toured the facilities and met some of the players. Georgia will definitely be getting one of my official visits.”
At 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, McNeil runs the 40-yard dash in 5.1 seconds and has a 29-inch vertical leap. As a junior, he was named 3A all-state by the Mississippi Association of Coaches after recording 116 pancake blocks. He has not allowed a sack in his high school career.
“I have not been to any camps so far this summer,” McNeil said. “I may take an unofficial to LSU this weekend but I haven’t decided. I am going to a team camp at Jones Junior College. I want to take all of my official visits and then I will decide at some point after that.”
As a junior, McNeil was named 3A all-state by the Mississippi Association of Coaches. He was all-area and all-district as a junior and also made the all-district team as a sophomore.
