Sneed talks early standouts

Trey Sneed has already picked up a long list of offers and plenty more will be on that list when it's all said and done. The 2016 running back of Orange Park (Fla.) Fleming Island has been to a lot of camps this summer and a few are starting to stand out.

Trey Sneed has been keeping busy this summer, camping at as many schools as he can fit in. For Sneed, it's about much more than just getting looked at by the coaches.

"A lot has been going on, this whole summer I've been going to camps. So far, I went to Auburn, I went to Duke, I went to Florida, Penn State," he said.

"The main thing, going out to those camps, of course you want to be looked at by colleges, of course you want those offers, but I use it to get better. My summer workouts for school just started, so that whole time I didn't have anything to do. I use those camps to get better at my game and I've definitely seen improvement over it."

Sneed has offers from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, South Florida, Wake Forest, and more. Plenty of other are interested, including Florida, Auburn, and Penn State.

"You definitely have your favorites, but I know I still a lot more offers that I'll get," he said.

"Duke, I like Duke a lot and the coaching staff. UNC, (defensive coordinator) coach (Dan) Disch, I like them a lot. I like Penn State a lot, (head) coach (James) Franklin is a great guy, (running backs) coach (Charles) Huff, I like him, they have a similar feel to Duke so I could definitely see myself there, and then Georgia Tech. I like those four right now."

Of all the places he camped this summer, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound junior enjoyed two the most.

"When I first got to Auburn, (I talked to running backs) coach (Tim) Horton, he's a really down to earth guy," Sneed said.

"Duke, they offered me awhile back, but I really like Duke. Their coaching staff, they really instill a family-type atmosphere. You can definitely tell that they care about what you do on the field and you as a whole person."

Auburn is certainly a school Sneed hopes to hold an offer from in the future and he said the Tigers have expressed a lot of interest.

"They said they talk about me in every meeting. They said they're only taking one back for 2016 and they got it narrowed down to three backs including myself. Just being able to be in the mix of that, just to say that I have a chance to play for Auburn, that's crazy as it is. A year ago, I would have never seen this coming," he said.

Sneed is taking his recruitment slowly, but he's certainly not sitting around. He's loving every second of traveling, camping, and competing. The 2016 standout expects his offer list to grow and he's excited to see it happen in the coming months.

"When you start to get offers, a buzz starts to get around, so now I'm hearing from a lot of coaches. They all mostly say the same thing, that they like my size. Really, I'm just enjoying it all," he said.

"Since I'm going into my junior year, this is an important year, but the main thing is that I'm just having fun. I love the recruiting process, I'm blessed that it came early for me."
