One of the most sought after prospects in the Midwest next year will be Durron Neal (St. Louis, Mo./De Smet Jesuit). The 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide receiver made the trek south to Florida for the Under-Armour combine that was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Neal is a two-time all-state selection and he received his first scholarship offer as a sophomore. He injured his knee near the end of the season but that didn't stop him from showing up to the combine with a goal in mind. "I know people don't think we play football in St. Louis," Neal said. "It's funny. I've been here for three days and when I showed the other guys at the combine the highlights from my sophomore and junior year, they couldn't believe how good I was.
