DE Lewis Neal of Wilson, NC was among the prospects to visit USC for junior day Saturday. And the visit moved the Gamecocks up the list with him.
“I loved it there,” Neal said. “My family loved it, so if they loved it, I loved it. I know they are going to have a good football program. Coach Lawing is an old school coach, and my coach is the same way. The campus is very nice. It’s in the city, and Columbia is in the middle of everything.”
Neal pointed out that USC sends a lot of defensive linemen to the NFL, and that stands out with him. And he has a good relationship with his recruiter Joe Robinson.
“Coach Robinson is a cool dude,” he said. “He’s from North Carolina and he knows me. I really like Coach Robinson.”
