2013 combo guard 6’4″ Cullen Neal of Albuquerque Eldorado (NM) spent the day in Phoenix/Temp, Arizona today on an unofficial visit on the Sun Devils campus. In an interesting juxtaposition, Neal wore a burnt orange Eldorado shirt to the game, not Arizona State maroon, nor the silver and red of New Mexico Lobos where his dad, Craig is Associate Head Coach.
Arizona State Head Coach Herb Sendek offered Cullen today. This is his 4th unoffcial visit thus far. He’s been to St. Mary’s, Stanford and Gonzaga and to this point says he has no clear favorite. There will be plenty of offers coming along for the talented guard who can score, create and just flat understands how to compete and run a team. He’ll be paired with UNM Head Coach Steve Alford’s son, 2013 combo guard 6’3″ Bryce Alford of Albuquerque La Cueva (NM) this spring to form one of the Nation’s most effective backcourts when they lace them up for Danny Granger’s D1 Ambassadors on the circuit.
New Mexico won in a squeaker as Texas D1 Ambassadors alum, Senior post A.J. Hardeman had a huge bucket in the last minute to seal the win on the road for the Lobos. After the game, young Neal made his way to the Arizona State dressing room to thank Coach Sendek for his visit and offer. Already recognized as a Top 100 player in the country Neal attended the Nike Jamboree in St, Louis, MO with many of the country’s top sophomore players.
