Okay, here is a guy I have been wondering about for two weeks...well, we have been talking about DE's and 3-4 and where are we going to find bodies for the coming year's defense.
David Neill is on the roster and is a big man, about 6-5 and 280ish. He is going into his RS Junior year, so he has been around. He arrived early his freshman season and redshirted playing the scout team...I think as a DT. His peers were: DE's, Sam Fehoko, Daniel Howard, Brandon Sharpe, Tyrone Sonier, and DT's Coby Whitlock and Bobby Agoucha. Perhaps he was not coming along fast enough, but we started thinking more about some other guys and McNeill moved over to offense. I think he spent a year there. To be considered for that, he has to be pretty athletic.
At the beginning of last season, I read that he moved back to defense...well we were really looking for DT/DE's at the beginning of this season...and David still has not surfaced.
Anyone know anything about him ?
