Tight end Josh McNeil (Durham, N.C./Hillside) is going through his own personal March Madness. Thursday was the first day in March that he didn’t add a school to his growing list of offers.

Not too shabby for a guy who played in his first football game just seven months ago.

I played basketball my whole life and never played football, not even Pop Warner. Then I played one year of high school football and have picked up 18 offers. I have Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio State, N.C, State…I have about six SEC offers and offers from the ACC, Big 12, Conference USA and more. Just imaging if I had played all my life -- it would be scary.”
