Moe Neal still committed to Syracuse’s Class of 2016 but unsure of future plans

He committed to Syracuse on Aug. 1 over Wake Forest. He still plans to enroll for the spring semester, but is waiting to see what will happen with the Orange’s coaching staff first.As soon as the news broke around 9:30 this morning, Neal’s phone blew up. He received five or six texts, was tweeted at by fans and received direct messages from other SU commits.Neal said he knew there was outside talk of Shafer being fired, but as recently as a week ago, Shafer told Neal he felt good about his job security.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I like Coach Shafer, I think he’s a good coach,” Neal said. “I guess people saw otherwise, you know, the win-loss column, so that’s why he’s out of there but I think he’s a great guy. I was glad he got to recruit me and I was just devastated to hear the news.”Running backs coach DeAndre Smith originally recruited Neal to play the hybrid position in offensive coordinator Tim Lester’s offense. With a new offense possibly on the horizon, Neal said he’d also be comfortable playing running back.As of this afternoon, Wake Forest and Georgia Southern also contacted Neal today since his recruitment may potentially open back up. He’s been in touch with other Orange commits and their wait-and-see outlook is mostly similar.“I think it’s time for the school to get turned around and get back on the right track,” Neal said. “Good recruiting class coming in if all of us stick together, all of us stay in contact it’ll be a good turnaround for the school and the program to get back to where it belongs.” Commentscenter_img Published on November 23, 2015 at 6:29 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschwedslast_img read more

The ten most expensive Premier League transfers that could happen this summer

first_img 10 10 10 6. Leonardo Bonucci to Manchester City: £45m-£50m – Pep Guardiola has looked to pip Chelsea to the signing of the Italy centre back but saw his opening bid of £38m rejected by Juventus. It will likely take an increase of around £10m to secure his signature. 10 10. Georginio Wijnaldum to Tottenham: £25m – click the arrow above, right, to see the most expensive possible transfers this summer – Newcastle’s Wijnaldum is looking for a Newcastle escape route having been relegated with the Magpies last season. The Toon paid £14.5m for the Dutchman last summer but are looking to earn a major profit, despite his poor performances. 3. Toni Kroos to Manchester City: £60m – Pep Guardiola is keen to add some class to his midfield and is unimpressed with the current crop that includes Yaya Toure, Fernando and Fernandinho. Kroos said he would ‘never rule anything out’ when asked about a move to City but it could take a British record fee to sign the German. 10 This summer could see the world record transfer fee smashed by a Premier League club with the new broadcasting deal coming into effect.Gareth Bale’s £85.3m move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013 is the current record but with the names being linked with transfers this summer, it is likely that he will not be the world’s most expensive player for much longer.There are plenty of big deals expected this summer which could be club-record transfers too, so talkSPORT looks at some of the most expensive ones which could happen.Click the arrow above, right, to see ten of the biggest possible transfers by Premier League clubs this summer. 7. Mauro Icardi to Tottenham: £38m – Tottenham are hoping to bolster their attacking options by bringing in the Argentine but face competition from Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone’s side has reportedly tabled a £29m bid but Spurs are hoping to blow them out of the water with a huge offer of nearly £10m more. 1. Lionel Messi to Chelsea: £150m+ – Fresh from receiving a 21-month suspended jail sentence, Messi’s father, who is also his agent, has reportedly met with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich on his super yacht. No fee has been mentioned but it would certainly smash the £100m barrier. 10 2. Paul Pogba to Manchester United: £100m – Reports have emerged that Pogba could be on his way back to Old Trafford for a world record fee. The 23-year-old has been offered a contract worth £300,000-a-week and would be the biggest transfer of the summer. 10 5. John Stones to Manchester City: £50m – Stones could finally make his move out of Everton after allegedly telling the club he wants to join City. The Toffees rejected a £40m bid from Chelsea last summer but after a sub-par season and a £50m bid, Stones could finally be on his way this summer. 9. Christian Benteke to Crystal Palace: £31.5m – Liverpool look like they could recoup the majority of the £32.5m they spent on the Belgian last summer as Crystal Palace search for a big money signing. West Ham could hijack this move but would have to pay a similarly large transfer fee. 10 4. Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea: £55m – This move would depend on Diego Costa’s future with the Blues having already signed Michy Batshuayi for £33m. Lukaku has been linked with a return to Chelsea and is keen to leave Everton for a bigger club. 10 10 8. Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea: £34m – Antonio Conte has identified Napoli’s Koulibaly as a man he wants to line up in his defence for the forthcoming season. He is seen as a cheaper alternative to John Stones and Leonardo Bonucci but would still command a hefty transfer fee. last_img read more
