Analysis: Nealy is a pure runner, with speed. He might not be the fastest runner, but is very quick and has great acceleration. His current height and weight are good for someone who is heading into his senior season, but will need to add some weight to compete with athletes at the next level. Besides his speed, vision has to be one of his better attributes. With his high school running a spread offense, it allows Nealy to use his vision to find the seams in the offensive line and burst for a big run. Despite DeVondrick being listed as a running back; he does have the ability to play receiver in a spread offense that utilizes its slot receiver. Nealy doesn’t name a leader and doesn’t have a definite date when he will announce his decision, but likely will decide in the fall. He wants to play early and wants a school that will help develop him into a better player to have the possibility at playing at the next level.
