McNeal was a 3-star prospect from Armwood High School in Seffner, Florida. He was ranked as the No. 71 athlete in the 2017 class.
In 3 games for the Ducks last season, McNeal had two receptions for 10 yards.
Can confirm what @SteveMims_RG had first. WR Darrian McNeal is no longer with the program and no longer enrolled at UO.

The Ducks are already very thin at the wide receiver position, so this hurts a little bit. However, McNeal was pretty far down the depth chart and did not figure to emerge as a go-to playmaker in 2018.
