"It actually felt great because I wasn't expecting it," he said of the Bearcat offer. "It came unexpected. When I found out I got the offer, I was excited. I thanked them and now I'm just waiting on finishing my season and make a decision."
The hold-up is currently his test score, which he has been skipping out on visits to work on.
"Nope, I haven't taken any visits," he admitted. "I've been too busy taking care of my ACT."
That should change soon though, as he does have visits planned for later this month and beyond.
"I'm going down to Cincinnati December 10th and I'm supposed to go to Akron at the end of November."
If the score is in by then, he says both in-state Big Ten schools, Michigan and Michigan State, have told him that an offer is a good possibility.
"They said finish working hard on my ACT and once I get my score and everything's right to get in, they'll be coming with an offer."
All of that considered, recruiting is really not on the forefront of Snyder's focus. He has the ACT, and his high school season. Madison is on to the regional round after a 46-3 victory over Macomb Lutheran North on Friday. A victory that Snyder is cautious about getting excited for.
"It feels good, but we still have more work to do because we were in the same spot last year and we know how it feels to lose in the 3rd Round of regionals. We have to go back on Monday and work even harder and do the same thing to Millington next week."
