"It was surprising," he admitted. "I was happy. During halftime of the basketball game, the head coach Kevin Wilson, he came over and offered me."
Not only was it a first offer, but it was from a school McNeil has gotten to see quite a bit of and all of it has been positive thus far.
"Right now, from what I've seen, I like it. I like everything I've seen there and I like the weight room."
He also had a chance to spend time with offensive line coach Greg Frey.
"Yeah, I talked to him a lot. He was a nice guy, cool and open."
Right now, because he is busy with basketball, McNeil is unsure if he will take any other visits. There have been schools coming to see him and sending more mail though.
