Shawnbrey McNeal, a Madison alum, played at Miami as a running back in 2007 and 2008 before transferring to SMU. He is on a short list of area players who went to Miami during that time, a list that also includes Lance Leggett of Arlington Grace Prep, Chris Perry (now at Texas Tech ) of Keller Fossil Ridge and Jason Fox of North Crowley. Southlake Carroll alum Kacy Rodgers is a sophomore at Miami now.
McNeal said he was shocked by the Yahoo!Sports investigation that uncovered multiple payments to players from a booster from 2002 to 2010.
“The situation seems kind of weird because I was there at one point in time,” he said in a phone interview. “I’ve never seen that guy, don’t even know who he is.”
McNeal ran for 152 yards and three touchdowns in his two seasons with the Hurricanes. He transferred to SMU to be closer to his family, playing in 2009 and rushing for 1,188 yards.
“Whatever comes from the situation, I wish the best for the football program,” said McNeal, who recently signed a contract with the San Diego Chargers.

The Redskins also announced a series of releases of players who featured mostly on the practice squad last season. Defensive tackle Rashaad Duncan, safety Macho Harris, wide receiver Taurus Johnson, running back Shawnbrey McNeal, wide receiver Maurice Price, and safety Sha’reff Rashad have all been cut from the roster.

Redskins signed RB Shawnbrey McNeal, WRs Taurus Johnson and Maurice Price, OTs Selvish Capers and Xavier Fulton, and DT Rashaad Duncan to reserve/future contracts.
Coach Mike Shanahan has done plenty with far inferior talents to McNeal, so he'll be a player to monitor this offseason. Capers was Washington's seventh-round pick last April. Duncan is a needed big body at 6'2/315.
