RECRUITING: Sooners in the mix for Texas QB Snead?

Quarterback Jevan Snead, who attended OU's spring game, talks about his visit and early leaders.

Jevan Snead, QB, 6-3, 195, 4.69, STEPHENVILLE, TEXAS:

JH: You made it in for OU's spring game, so what were your thoughts?

JS: "It was real nice. It was a great atmosphere. I talked to Coach (Bob) Stoops, Coach (Chuck) Long and Coach (Cale) Gundy, and I watched the quarterbacks practice. I talked to them about the quarterback situation and about their offense. Watching them practice was a lot of fun because I got a chance to learn a lot about their offense. I also talked to Adrian Peterson, and that was pretty cool."

JH: What did you find out about the Sooners' quarterback picture?

JS: "They just talked about how they didn't sign a quarterback last year and that they need to get somebody this year."

JH: How do you feel you would fit into the Sooners' quarterback situation?

JS: "If I were to go there it would give me a year's spacing from their quarterbacks, where I would have my junior and senior year to be the starter."

JH: What do you think of Oklahoma's offense?

JS: "It is a great offense for a quarterback. It is quarterback friendly, and the fact that they can run the ball so well just opens up the passing game."

JH: Where else have you been this spring?

JS: "I also went to Texas A&M's spring game. That is the only other spring game, but I went to watch Auburn practice and I went and checked out Florida's facilities and talked to their coaches."

JH: How many offers do you have at this point?

JS: "I think I have been offered between 15 and 20, but I am not really sure."

JH: Do you have a top five?

JS: "Right now the schools I have been to are my top schools right now. I have been to Oklahoma, Auburn, Florida, Texas A&M and Texas. I guess those are my top schools right now, but I am keeping an open mind because I haven't ruled out anybody either. I am going to try to make a decision before the season starts. Right now I kind of have a top three of Florida, Oklahoma and Texas A&M."

JH: What is going to separate these three schools?

JS: "I think it is going to come down to how comfortable I feel around the coaching staff. The offense will be important and then the situation at quarterback. All of them are great and each one has a quarterback friendly offense. All of them have great programs."
