The Notre Dame receiver announced last month he was transferring, and now he's announced he's returning home.
Davonte Neal is returning home.
The two-time Gatorade Player of the Year in Arizona announced at the end of March that he was leaving Notre Dame to return closer to home, and he's done just that. The wide receiver told Blue and Gold Illustrated he's transferring to Arizona.
“The primary reason I chose Arizona was because it was close to my family and my daughter can come see me everyday -- that was the most important to me and having that family support,” Neal said. “The way Coach Rodriguez throws the ball around is amazing. They do it the entire game. I’ll have an opportunity to play inside and outside receiver in the offense. He does know how to get the ball in his players’ hands, and from there they make plays.”
The majority of playing time Neal saw in South Bend came on special teams, where he returned 21 punts for 46 yards. On offense he had only one reception for a loss of 5 yards and he also had one carry for 7 yards.
Neal will have to sit out the 2013 season but will have three years of eligibility remaining with Arizona starting with the 2014 season.
