Albuquerque, N.M. --- Another Lobo newcomer received a big honor, as Cullen Neal, an incoming freshman for the Lobos, was named a Parade All-American. The 57th Annual Team was announced across the country in local papers as a part of Parade.
Neal, a 6-5 guard from Eldorado High School and the 2012 New Mexico Gatorade Player of the Year, was the only incoming Mountain West student-athlete on the list. Neal is currently ranked as the No. 87 recruit on ESPN's Top 100 high school recruits list.
Neal is one of three recruits signed by head coach Craig Neal (his father), and all have had high accolades. Junior College recruits Arthur Edwards and Deshawn Delaney were ranked No. 60 and No. 12 respectively by JucoRecruiting.com.
Last season Neal averaged 26.5 points per game for the Eagles, who he led to the 2012 New Mexico 5A state title, a game won in The Pit.
