Kansas football lands extremely athletic running back Devin Neal

Kansas football continues to add depth to its class of 2021 with the verbal commitment of three-star running back Devin Neal out of Lawrence High School. The hometown hero will be more than just a football player though, he’ll also be playing baseball for the Jayhawks.

Neal was highly sought after by schools other than Kansas though. He also received football offers from Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State. 247 Sports’ evaluation projects Neal as a “power-5 starter,” calling him a “strong runner who runs through arm tackles.”

In his 2019 season, Neal rushed for over 1,600 yards plus 26 touchdowns.
