Sandy Creek offensive lineman Cole Neely has been putting in long hours this offseason to hone his craft. Earlier this spring Neely earned camp recognition winning Top 5 OL at Big Man Takeover and Top 10 OL at the Adidas Showcase.
The Class of 2017 offensive lineman has had a flurry of offers in the month of May. His latest is from Presbyterian, but prior to the Blue Hose were Towson, Air Force and Elon—all offering this month, too.
With spring practice in the books and summer camp just weeks away, Neely looks to impress local FBS school and earn an offer.
“I plan on attending Sound Mind Sound Body, Trent Miles camp on June 8th, Borobuilt camp at Buford on the 16th and I’m still debating going to Duke or Wake Forest,” Neely said.
Neely will be making a switch to center this offseason, which fits his 6’3″, 260-pound frame better.
“(My) head coach and trainer are thinking center is better and a lot of coaches have started to look at me more as a center lately too,” he said.
From a fundamental standpoint Neely is very sound. He gets incredibly low, which allows him to forklift the defensive lineman off the line of scrimmage. Neely has a big motor and works hard running downfield staying with the play.
The Sandy Creek student-athlete boasts a 3.7 GPA and should transition easily over to center at the next level. Another short note is the selfless mindset of Cole Neely. He routinely updates our staff on early offers for his teammates, and one could imagine that he would be a great locker-room guy at the next level.
