According to 247Sports.com, Davonte Neal is the No. 53 player in the Class of 2012 and the No. 6 “athlete” in the country.
The wide receiver/cornerback is also the highest-rated ’12 recruit who remains unsigned nearly three weeks after National Signing Day, although that situation should be rectified in short order.
The Scottsdale, Ariz., product is expected to announce his decision Tuesday at noon ET and sign his Letter of Intent. Neal has reportedly narrowed his choices to Arizona, Arkansas, North Carolina and Notre Dame.
Depending on which way the wind’s blowing at the time you read a report, either the Wildcats or Irish are considered the front-runners. Neal has made official visits to all of the schools mentioned with the exception of Arizona, although one scheduled to the home-state school was scrubbed recently due to a death in his family.
