Name: Daronte McNeil
Hometown: Elizabeth City, North Carolina
High School: Northeastern High School
Position: Tailback
Vitals: 6'1/235/4.7

NOTES: A two-time Northeastern Coastal Conference Player-of-the-Year, McNeil was a four-year letterman who earned all-conference designation as a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior.

He capped a brilliant career by leading the state in rushing as a senior, totaling 3,029 yards and 34 touchdowns. The main threat at Northeastern HS, McNeil rushed for 8,229 yards and 98 touchdowns over the four-year span.

Physically, he may be the most ready to play of all the in-state tailback prospects.

SCOUTING REPORT: "Daronte McNeil is a tough runner that loves to pop outside for extra yardage. Surprisingly elusive with defenders bearing down on him, he makes a quick move to break arm tackles. McNeil is not very flexible, but he is very strong with a great stiffarm." -- Football Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit

MCNEIL QUOTE: "Location was big. I like that my family can come to see all my games and if I want to come home I can come home. I think I can play early for them."
