With the future already decided for Rutgers running back commit Trey Sneed, the Fleming Island (Fla.) star focused his official visit on what really matters.
Sneed is set for early enrollment and already met new head coach Chris Ash. His official visit served other motives.
"It was crazy the food that they were giving us," said Sneed, who concluded his official visit Saturday afternoon. "We pretty much had everything that we could think of. Now I have to go back to what I’ve been used to when I’ve been in food heaven these past three days. I’d say that’s my favorite part of the weekend."
Outside of "food heaven," Sneed enjoyed time with his soon-to-be teammates, a trip to New York and a seat in the student section for today's 17-16 upset win for Rutgers wrestling over No. 4 Nebraska.
"Any time you get the chance to take an official visit, I definitely recommend it," Sneed said. "It’s always a fun time. It was fun just to connect with the players and be around the players. I got to see what college life is truly about. I’ll actually be there in January, so it was important to get those bonds started with the players on the team."
Freshman wide receiver Rashad Blunt, also of Jacksonville, hosted Sneed on the visit.
"I’ve known Rashad for my whole life, so it was good going up there," Sneed said. "It was like picking up where we left off. We were out there joking the whole time. He helped me. You have your advisors tell you about the typical schedule and Rashad would fill in everything. He would tell me how it truly is. They’ll tell you what it’s supposed to look like and he gave me a feel of how it really is."
Sneed received a Wednesday night visit with Ash that has him comfortable and ready for a January enrollment. Ash, however, spent the weekend in Ohio State in preparation for the Fiesta Bowl.
"The meeting with coach Ash sealed the deal for me," Sneed said. "I fell in love with the place back in April and I always felt like I wanted to go there but speaking with coach Ash made me excited for the future. I’m locked, loaded and ready to go."
