The state of Florida is loaded with talent and one young man who could see his stock soar with a productive senior season is Dantwaun O'Neal. O'Neal is 6'3 195 lbs. WR/S prospect out of DeLand (FL) HS.
O'Neal currently totes offers from "Florida International,UMASS,Georgia State,Memphis,South Alabama,Bethune Cookman, and Georgia Tech." O'Neal also says "I need to contact Florida,West Virginia,Penn State,NC State,Pitt,Florida State,Rutgers, and Boston College to see if any of them have offered."
One school stands out right now in Florida International of which O'Neal says "I'm really liking FIU right now, it's a grown program and in a couple of years they'll be a top 25 school. It's a perfect place for a wideout like me."
No commitment is imminent despite his love for Florida International as he says "I'm just gonna hold off and look at my other options." Dantwaun would speak about some of those other offers in saying.....
Georgia Tech - "Georgia Tech is a great school, they don't pass much but they put a big time WR's in the NFL. They also play in the ACC."
Memphis - "Memphis is looking good, they're going to the Big East so I can really see myself making a impact and helping them."
Some other programs that have caught O'Neal's eye is "Florida,Florida State,Rutgers,and West Virginia." O'Neal's plans for those programs are "I just need to take a visit and see how the coaching staff is and the school."
The 6'3 WR has already visited Florida International, and Florida of which he says "Both was great, great coaching staffs and beautiful schools."
O'Neal also has a list of conferences he prefers on his list that includes the"SEC,Big 12,ACC,Big East, and Conference USA." O'Neal also says "I don't care who I compete against, I just want them to work hard, and compete."
