McNeal may have been all a-Twitter on playing time, but Strong wasn’t

Posted November 23rd, 2015


Texas football coach Charlie Strong delivered a good line when asked what freshman tight end DeAndre McNeal must do to get on the field.

“Get off social media,” Strong said.

McNeal, who has zero catches, has been vocal on Twitter about his role. He recently posted, “I can make these touchdown catches. I just need the chance.”


His post has since been deleted.
