When Neal walks off the bus or onto the field, he looks like a college football player. That’s what one redshirt year in the weight room can do. Now, Neal figures to be a major player at a defensive end spot that needs his size and strength against the run. He appeared fully recovered in the spring from a leg injury that kept him out in 2015. Neal is a natural, burly base end who may be No. 2 at the start of the year. Once he gets his feet wet in the college game, the Omaha Central graduate projects to a multiyear starter.
