Plyler on McNeal: "This was one of the most important signees for several reasons. First, the Tigers need help at wide receiver. Second, it was Jeff Scott’s first big-time national recruiting experience. Third, his announcement on national television was good publicity for the program. And finally, McNeal was active in recruiting others to Clemson. This is a gifted receiver with terrific ball skills. He catches the ball well in traffic. He will have to get stronger but once he males an adjustment to the college game, he has a chance to be a very good player."
