Spartans Showing Early Interest

Despite being a member of the 2014 recruiting class, wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass is already hearing about Michigan State.

Saturday found Springfield (OH) High School wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass showing again his future potential with a solid day at the Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

How did the 6-foot, 175-pound receiver perform against over 1,200 other prospects?

"I feel today was a pretty good days as my SPARQ rating was 96.27," said Snodgrass. "I've been rehabbing my collarbone and doing some speed training to improve my speed and feel it helped today."

Snodgrass, who opened eyes last summer with some great forty times didn't disappoint on Saturday posting a 4.64 laser timed forty to go with a 4.33 shuttle.

This fall he's hopeful a new offense will allow him to show his growing talents.

"We just got a new head coach," Snodgrass explained. "I like him a lot as he's talking about spreading the ball out and getting the receivers the ball a lot."

While Snodgrass is solid in all testing areas, he knows on the field he must continue to improve.

"I need to continue working on my concentration," he said. "I feel I need to step my game up this fall and provide more leadership to my team."

As for early recruiting interest, Snodgrass is leaning on his new coach as to who has interest.

"My coach is saying Michigan State wants me to come and visit them," said Snodgrass. "I'm also hearing a lot from Toledo, Alabama, Michigan and Wisconsin."

What will Snodgrass look for in a college as the recruiting process heats up?

"I'm looking for a school that is a good fit for me and one that I can call home," he said. "I'm also looking for early playing time."

Look for Snodgrass to be one of Ohio's top prospects in the 2014 class and a major target of the Spartans.
