Texas QB gets visit from Werner

Jevan Snead, the freshman QB from the University of Texas who has decided to transfer from the Longhorn program, met tonight in his Stephenville, TX, home with Ole Miss Offensive Coordinator Dan Werner. Read a brief interview with Snead about the visit from Ole Miss inside.

Jevan Snead has been a popular man since opting to transfer from Texas to another school after one season as a Longhorn.

"I've gotten calls from Houston, TCU, Louisville, Arkansas and Ole Miss. Ole Miss OC Dan Werner visited here tonight," said Snead, who played in some Longhorn games in 2006 when starter Colt McCoy was injured. "The visit went well."

Werner recruited Snead last year when Dan was at Miami, but they had never met face-to-face.

"We had talked a lot on the phone last year when he was recruiting me for Miami. When we met, it felt like I knew him," said Jevan.

Jevan, his family and Werner spent "a couple of hours" in his Stephenville, TX, home.

"I was comfortable with Coach Werner and what he told me about Ole Miss and the offense he's running there," Snead, a 6-3, 215-pounder, stated. "Ole Miss runs a Pro-style offense which is great because it prepares you for the NFL. It's a goal of mine to play in the NFL and his offense gets you ready for that."

Snead is in the early process of deciding which school he will choose, but he admits he doesn't have a lot of time to waste. He's going to enroll at his new school in January and will have to sit out the 2007 season due to transfer rules. After that, he will have three years of eligibility left - the 2008, 2009, 2010 seasons.

"I can't take forever to decide, but I've got several more people and schools to listen to," he explained.

So where does Ole Miss stand?

"Due to the fact I don't have a lot of time, I'm not going to waste any of it. If I am talking to a school, I am serious about them. I am talking to Ole Miss," he noted.

Snead has not set up a visit to Ole Miss yet, but he'd like to work one out.

"We haven't formally set up anything yet, but I'd like to work it out where I can go to Oxford next weekend. We'll see how that unfolds," he closed. "Hopefully, we can work it out."
