Neal running with the Wolfpack

North Carolina State continues to strengthen its relationship with Lewis Neal.

The Wolfpack were the first to offer the junior defensive end from Wilson (N.C.) James B. Hunt a scholarship, then wowed Neal with an upset victory over Clemson on Saturday.

“Fun!” Neal stated via text message to ESPN when asked of the trip. “I believe Clemson didn't know what hit them. The fans were loud for NC State.”

Neal has been a frequent visitor to Raleigh. When asked what other schools he's interested in, he said Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Purdue, Oregon, Alabama, Florida, Duke, Wake Forest, Minnesota and Georgia Tech.
