Scout evaluation:

Quite possibly -- at the time of this evaluation posting -- Sneed is one of the more undervalued prospects in the entire country. The Lone Star State is loaded with talent at the wide receiver position and Sneed could end up being one of if not the top guy by the time that the dust settles on his college career. He is a very athletic receiver with good speed. He is also a tremendous runner and will rack up yards after the catch. Shows good hands and great concentration, climbing the ladder or plucking footballs out of the air while in mid-stride. -- Greg Powers, Scout national analyst

More analysis: In just about any other year, you would see R.J. Sneed among the top 10 receivers in the state of Texas. He's that good. But this also happens to be an absolutely loaded in-state receiver cycle, so players such as Sneed, who is a high three-star close to the four-star cutoff, may not seem to be ranked as high in the state at their position as they would in other seasons.

Sneed has a good frame and impressive on-field athleticism that help make him a home run-hitting receiver in an offense that has centered around the running game in recent seasons. We look forward to watching Sneed's development this fall in his third year on varsity for one of Greater Houston's best programs in recent years.

  • 2015: Sneed finished his junior season with 34 catches for 559 yards and nine touchdowns on more than 16 yards per catch.
  • 2014: Sneed led his team in receptions and receiving yards as he finished with 29 catches for 621 yards and six touchdowns on 21.4 yards per catch as Cypress Ranch reached the state championship round in Texas' largest playoff division (6A D-I).
