"I have gotten phone calls from UCLA, Stanford, Cal, Fresno State, Washington, Washington State, Duke, Harvard, Yale, Wyoming, San Diego State, Colorado, and Arizona," said Snyder. "I think there are some more, too, but that is all I can think of right now."
Snyder is being recruited as an outside linebacker/defensive end and plays d-end and tight end for Monte Vista. In their first game, he had two sacks against La Costa Canyon in a 34-0 win. On offense, he does not see many opportunities but makes the best of them when they do come along. Last year, he had a five catches for four touchdowns.
Clinton is a top-notch student claiming a 4.47 core GPA with a 1240 SAT score. So it is no wonder he is looking for a strong academic institution. "Stanford is my slight leader," he says. "I also like UCLA, Cal, and Arizona."
He has three written offers right now; Cal, UCLA, and SDSU. He says that the Bruins, Bears, and Cardinal are showing the most attention.
Snyder, like many other recruits, sees the potential for a top program in Tucson. "I really like Coach Stoops and how he is defensive-minded. I think they are an up-and-coming program."
Coach Dunn is after him for the Cats.
His parents do not have a favorite. "Really, they are just overwhelmed by everything right now. They know I will pick a good academic school and they are happy about that."
He would like to major in Mechanical Engineering.
Monte Vista takes on El Camino, this Friday.
