08/27/12 - Wide receiver Bryce McNeal is no longer a member of the Louisville football team, head coach Charlie Strong announced during Monday's Big East coaches' teleconference. After graduating from Clemson in three years, McNeal looked to transfer for his final year of eligibility. He would have been allowed to play at Louisville this season, and he had been practicing with the team since Aug. 10. McNeal had originally planned to attend Connecticut, but he was unable to gain admission, according to various reports. He then decided to become a Cardinal, though that decision turned out to be short-lived. A one-time high school All-American, McNeal never fully recognized his potential. He only caught 20 passes for 195 yards in two seasons at Clemson. Though the Louisville receiving corps has already lost leading returner Michaelee Harris, this will not be a major blow to a deep and athletic group. DeVante Parker, Eli Rogers and the emergence of freshman Charles Gaines has buoyed the unit, which figures to complement quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. - Evan Hilbert, CBSSports.com
08/08/12 - They're not listed on the official roster yet, but multiple reports from the start of Louisville's preseason camp confirm that two ex-Tigers, former Auburn quarterback Zeke Pike and former Clemson wide receiver Bryce McNeal, have boarded the transfer train to the River City. Both have been the subject of local rumors over the past week, and the Louisville Courier-Journal reported Monday that both are in the fold pending the obligatory paperwork. McNeal was easily the highest rated prospect out of the state of Minnesota in 2009, but fell well short of his blue-chip hype at Clemson, following a redshirt year with only 19 catches in 2010 and only one catch last year before he decided to leave the team just three games into the season. By that point, he'd already been passed on the depth chart by three true freshmen, Sammy Watkins, Martavis Bryant and Charone Peake, and had yet to score a touchdown. Still, McNeal remained enrolled at Clemson to finish his degree, committing in the meantime to transfer to UConn for his final two years of eligibility. In accordance with that timeline, he's set to graduate from Clemson later this week - a year ahead of the standard four-year plan - likely allowing him to bypass the NCAA's usual transfer penalty and play immediately this season as a graduate student. Unexpectedly, though, he will not be playing or studying at UConn, whose admissions office reviewed McNeal's transcript last week and concluded it could not admit a student with "somewhere around a 2.4 grade point average" to the graduate school, regardless of his two-year commitment or his time in the 40-yard dash. - Matt Hinton, CBSSports.com
01/02/12 - Bryce McNeal has found his destination, as the wide receiver announced via Twitter he would transfer to Connecticut from Clemson. "Your boy is officially a Uconn huskie," McNeal tweeted this weekend. McNeal, who announced about a month into the college football season he would transfer from Clemson, will be eligible to play next season instead of having to wait a year. Because McNeal already graduated, the rule requiring players to sit out a year does not apply to him. McNeal caught 19 passes for 187 yards in 2010 after playing in 12 of 13 games, but played in just the first three games for Clemson this season. He caught one pass for eight yards. - The Sports Xchange
