Who: Nathan Snyder
High School: Marysville (OH) Marysville
Current Height/Weight: 6-4 210
Current Position: P
Analysis: Snyder is a tall, athletic, strong-legged guy that has excelled as a QB in high school. He has a big leg with great hang time and talent that he is just now tapping. He has a solid, quick get off which will help him from getting kicks blocked. Snyder is still developing, but already shows the ability to pin teams deep with good accuracy on his punts along with the ability to blast long kicks to change field position. Not to be forgotten is Snyder’s arm. He is athletic, can run and has the ability to throw, having been and effective high school career. This should be something Cardinals fans should remember.
Outlook: Ball State has a long history of producing high quality special teams performers, especially at Punter. Snyder should be able to slide right into that group. He has the skill set to be a great one and will be able to show that ability right away with starting P Kyle Schmidt graduating.
