4-star defensive tackle Alim McNeill from Raleigh, N.C. (Sanderson HS) has Clemson in his top ten schools that he announced on his Twitter account on Thursday evening.

“I want to thank all the colleges that have offered me,” McNeill said in his tweet. “I appreciate EVERY offer I have received to further my education and athletic career. In an effort to simplify this process, I have narrowed my options to these schools.”

His top ten schools listed were Clemson, Louisville, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, Florida State, Penn State, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech. Seventy percent of his top schools are from the ACC.

McNeil has national offers from App State, Arkansas, Boston College, Charlotte, Duke, East Carolina, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Old Dominion, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Tulane, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Western Kentucky, and others.

He plays defensive line, middle linebacker, running back and tight end (different times) in high school but will be a defensive lineman in college.

McNeill said he wants to make a decision in December, but being an early enrollee isn’t an option because he hopes to continue his baseball career in college.

The 6-3, 270-pound prospect visited Clemson last fall for the Pittsburgh game and he said he came away impressed with the overall atmosphere.

“The game atmosphere was crazy,” McNeill said. “Even though it was just Pitt, you would think it was a rivalry game. The fans and everything were crazy.”

McNeill tallied 82 total tackles, 18 tackles for loss, six sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception as a junior. Offensively, he carried the ball 15 times for 69 yards and six touchdowns and caught four passes for 24 yards and a score.
