Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU


Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/colleges/alabama/post?id=9369

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It’s the end of the Tide Towers.

On Thursday, ESPN 150 tight end Josh McNeil (Durham, N.C./Milford) announced that he decommitted from Alabama, ending the possibility of he and fellow four-star tight end O.J. Howard ever playing together for the Crimson Tide.

The reason Alabama and McNeil parted ways comes from an academic issue that stems from his ninth grade year, according to McNeil’s high school coach, Antonio King.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

Well alrighty then.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

Nothing like keeping your word.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

It doesn't sound like he had much of a choice if it was related to academics. I would not call that going back on your word.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

They are in the same conference, if it were an academic issue wouldn't it also effect him with going to LSU, maybe the young man just changed his mind. He is what 18 years old.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

@ BAB----Same conference but different state. Both are state supported schools and there may a difference between the state system requirements. State systems vary from state to state regardless of conference affiliation. Just to give you an example, the NC system requires a foreign language, while some states do not require it.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

@Elem

Good point

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

UNC has a great academic program for athletes were no attendance is required, a good grade is guaranteed and Ebonics is recognized as a foreign language which then covers the NC foreign language requirement!

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

@Kmagnusson....So does State College in Raleigh!!!!!

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

@kmagnusson Don't be that guy. I have buddies that went to UNC & State that played football during the 2005-2009 years and let me say the kettle is calling the pot black here. I've seen checks handed to state players with my own eyes and have them show me a grade they gotten for being on the team. Honestly the only thing different is that you guys haven't had anyone post pics on Facebook. That makes state players a little more smarter I guess.

RE: Hillside's McNeil decommits from Alabama to LSU

Don't think he is going to State or UNC. Don't think they got any consideration.

Speaking of social media, the young man might need to stay off twitter for awhile. The swirling rumor mill stuff is for the BIRDS
