Cyclones offer Neat as a wide receiver

Although Hallandale Beach (Fla.) athlete Korvic Neat is verbally committed to Florida International, he's been collecting offers from BCS conference schools that could change his course.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Neat has been a fixture at FIU home games this fall after committing to the Panthers in the summer. But offers from the likes of North Carolina, Rutgers, Ole Miss and Iowa State (in addition to Troy, Western Kentucky and Southern Miss) has him contemplating a bigger picture.

"I'm still committed to FIU," Neat said. "I like their program and I like the atmosphere at their games, I've been to all of them, all of the home games. I really don't know about visiting other schools but it's something I have to think about."

Neat and his Hallandale teammates are still alive in the post-season with a second round playoff game upcoming. Neat is rated a two-star prospect by Rivals.com.
