Snider is a tough, physical kid who totaled 179 tackles as a junior. He also had 158 tackles as a sophomore. The question on Snider will be whether he can get big enough to play middle linebacker at the BCS level or fast enough to play WILL linebacker, he has been clocked electronically at 4.73 in the 40-yard dash.

Strength won't be a problem as he finished fourth in the state weight lifting championship as a junior in the 219 pound weight classification. Either will tenacity as his coach described him as extremely tough.
