NC State fans were elated when Raleigh’s own (Sanderson High), 4-star Defensive End Alim McNeil (6’2”/286), committed to run with the Wolfpack. McNeil is a U.S. Army All-American. In 13 games in 2017, McNeil had 60 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks. Alim also ran the ball 20 times, scoring touchdowns on 8 of them, averaging 8.2 yards per carry. He even had a 50-yard kickoff return. Not your normal 286-pounder. Wouldn’t be shocked at all if he competes for the starting job at Defensive End next year.
