Quotable: “I really liked that Coach Muschamp was on the defensive side of the
ball and coaching up the safeties because that is my position. Just the environment,
man,” Neal said when asked what made him decide to commit to Florida. Just
you know seeing what I’m going to be, where I’m going to be at. It was great and
I’m really looking forward to it. All the other guys like Quinton Powell and Nick
Washington, those are pretty good friends of mine. I talk to them pretty frequently
and were building relationships and I’m looking forward to playing with them.” —
