It came down to Arizona and Notre Dame, but with the guidance of his father, Neal decided to play in South Bend next year! Davonte Neal is the #8 overall prospect, as well as the #1 athlete in the ESPN Class of 2012. Neal, a wide receiver, is a five star prospect that should be able to stretch the field next year for the Irish. He should improve Notre Dame’s special teams, especially when it comes to punt returning an area Irish struggled in last year. Davonte Neal should serve as a great asset on the offensive of the ball, allowing veterans like Tyler Eifert and T.J. Jones to get open more often.
