Do Noles Lead For Talented NC Ath?

Posted Jul 11, 2004

This past week an athlete from Wilmington (NC) turned some heads at the Florida State camp by battling back and fourth with The No. 8 rated wide receiver in O.J. Murdock. The caught up with him to find out how his camp experience in Tallahassee went.

“The Florida State camp went well,” wide receiver/cornerback Levin Neal said. “I really liked the coaches and the players. I got to hang out with (Chris) Rix and Xavier Lee. The coaches told me that they’ll let me know in September if they will offer or not.”

Right after the Seminole camp, the 5-foot-11 and 185 pound rising senior from Eugene Ashley high school in Wilmington (NC) headed up to Virginia Tech for a junior day. This summer he has also attended football camps at Georgia, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

Where do the Noles stand on his list?

“Definitely Florida State and North Carolina State are on top,” he said. “I’m going to take all five of my official visits before I make a decision. I’ll probably take most of my visits in December. I’ll also have plans to attend the North Carolina State/Miami and Florida State/Florida games in the fall.”

What position will the talented prospect with 4.3 40-yard dash speed end up playing at the next level?

“I’m being recruited to play either wide receiver or cornerback,” he said. “I think I’m a better wide receiver but it doesn’t matter to me. I went both ways in the camp and matched up against O.J. Murdock. He was the best wide receiver that I’ve seen this summer. However, I got a couple picks on him.”

Neal touts his strengths on the field as his knowledge of the game and his running ability after the catch.

As a junior, Neal made 47 catches with nine for touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

Neal, who is an excellent student in the classroom, carries a 3.4 grade point average.
