Like other top prospects across the 2020 and 2021 class, Neville took notice of how the Longhorns used the team’s big receivers last season.
“I’m just seeing what they did with Lil’Jordan Humphrey, and as well with and they had a Collin Johnson amazing season,” Neville told BON’s Joe Hamilton. “That’s something I think I’d like to be a part of. They also have a lot of young guys as well that can play at the receiver position, too. So it’s a lot of good things going on with them.”
A consensus four-star prospect ranked as the nation’s No. 184 prospect and No. 29 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Neville plans on announcing his commitment during his senior season in 2020.
