Gamecock FB Recruiting: 2015 WR Dexter Neal makes early pledge to South Carolina
Forget the 2014 class.
South Carolina is already on the run with the 2015 recruiting class.
On Thursday, the Gamecocks picked up its first commitment of the 2015 recruiting class when Dexter Neal, a 6-2, 195-pound wide receiver from Georgia, made his commitment to the Gamecocks during his spring game.
This sophomore has racked up the offers already before the end of his sophomore year of high school. Currently, he has 13 offers including recent offers from West Virginia, Central Florida, Michigan State, Clemson, Georgia State and South Carolina.
That South Carolina offer was the big one.
Neal decided that South Carolina was his school before receiving the offer and once it came, he knew he would make it a short recruitment even though he's got two years before he's able to sign.
Neal is from the powerhouse high school Stephenson that has been extremely good to the Gamecocks in recent years. It's also another top-notch recruit from the state of Georgia that continues to be a hot bed for South Carolina recruiting. Bryson-Allen Williams being in the fold already didn't hurt the Gamecocks chances either. He continues to be a valuable recruiter and helped push Neal towards South Carolina as well.
This is a player with loads of potential following a 91-catch sophomore campaign. He's very fluid in his movements and looks comfortable route-running. He's not a receiver that will beat you down the field with his speed but his body control and catching ability make him a successful player.
South Carolina has its first commitment for the 2015 class and they've hit a homerun with Dexter Neal.
