According to Ben Doster of Deacons Illustrated, LB/DE Kalin McNeil has commited to Wake Forest.
McNeil had a very strong camp at East Carolina last week and was on campus at Wake Forest today on a visit when he accepted the offer extended to him yesterday.
At 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, McNeil will likely add a lot of muscle weight to that frame over the next year. He had offers from East Carolina, Elon, North Carolina A&T and Wake Forest.
McNeil is not rated by any of the major recruiting services, but was coming on strong the past month. At the Wake Forest camp that he attended McNeil really stuck out. He ran under a 4.6 40 in both timings and excelled at the one-on-on drills.
No doubt that the coaching staff feels like he is a real steal for the Deacs.
Wake Forest now has seven commits for the class of 2014, perhaps easing the concern of many Wake fans (myself included) that felt the Deacs were falling a bit behind ACC rivals.
Welcome to Wake Forest Kalin!
