Texas QB Jevan Snead to visit Louisville

Texas transfer quarterback Jevan Snead is considering four schools, including Louisville. Snead visited TCU last weekend, and will make a trip to Louisville this weekend. Snead spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his transfer plans Monday night and we've got the exclusive scoop!

Texas transfer Jevan Snead will take a look at Louisville this weekend when he visits Bobby Petrino's Orange Bowl-bound program.

The 6-3, 215-pound Snead was ranked the sixth-best quarterback by Scout.com coming out of Stephenville (TX) High last year. Snead served as Colt McCoy's backup in Austin this season, completing 26-of-49 passes for 371 yards.

Snead is also considering TCU, Ole Miss and Houston, and made a visit to Fort Worth last weekend. "The visit to (TCU) went real well," Snead told InsideTheVille.com Monday night. "I got to watch practice and tour the facilities. I had a good time."

After Snead announced his decision to leave Texas last month, many thought he was headed to TCU. However, Snead said he's uncertain where he'll end up, though he'll make that decision sometime this month.

"There's no front-runner right now," Snead said. "I wouldn't be talking with or looking at these schools if I weren't interested in them. I was raised in Texas and I have a pretty strong desire to stay here, but if I find a better opportunity out of state I'll take it."


Snead is strongly considering
Louisville.

Snead said he would talk with Louisville assistant Jeff Brohm Monday night to confirm plans for his visit this weekend. "I'm planning to visit Louisville this weekend and I'll speak with Coach Brohm later tonight to confirm everything," Snead said. "He seems like a great coach."

The Cardinals have the #2 offense in the nation and will loose junior quarterback Brian Brohm after next season. Snead would have to sit out the 2007 season and could possibly step in as Brohm's replacement in 2008. "They have a great program and tradition of producing great quarterbacks like (Brohm), and he'll be gone after I sit out next season," Snead said. "I'm just looking for a place where I'm happy and that I can play. I can't make any mistakes with my decision, so I'm really looking for a great fit."

Snead said he'll also likely visit Ole Miss and Houston before making a decision.

"I plan on going to Ole Miss from Louisville later this weekend," he said. "I'll make my decision before the start of next semester so I can get started with school and be ready for spring football."
