Alabama Football Recruiting: Josh McNeil Commits To Tide Over Georgia, Florida

Josh McNeil, a consensus top-five tight end nationally, committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide. McNeil is out of North Carolina and is a four-star recruit.

Mcneil stands 6'5", weighs 240 pounds and is very athletic. He's also quite raw.

McNeil recently spoke with SB Nation about Alabama and other schools running the pro-style offense. McNeil cited the opportunity to play right away and NFL development as reasons for considering those programs.

McNeil is physically impressive in that he is long and athletic, but he still very much looks like a basketball player. He is very raw as a football player.

"I played basketball and haven't lifted football weights yet. That's one of my things, I gotta hit the weight room hard this summer," McNeil said.

McNeil joins Alabama commitment O.J. Howard to form the best pair of tight end commitments nationally. Howard is rated as the top tight end in the country.
