WR R.J. Sneed With Options Ahead

One of the most under rated players in Texas checks in from Cypress (Texas) Cypress Ranch High School. At 6-foot-1, 175-pounds wide receiver R.J. Sneed checks in as a three-star prospect but don’t let that fool you.

R.J. Sneed is currently committed to TCU, making his verbal pledge on February 13th, 2016.  He holds offers from TCU, California, Houston, Illinois, Mississippi, Oklahoma State and Utah to name a few.

“It's been going good so far,” R.J. Sneed said. “Ole Miss, Auburn, Alabama, TCU, Texas and California came so far.”

Sneed would be a great fit into the Sterlin Gilbert offense.  Keep an eye on Sneed moving forward if Texas decides to offer the standout wide receiver.  While he has not built up relations with Charlie Strong he does stay in contact with Coach Jeff Traylor.

“I haven't really talked to Coach Strong but I talk to Coach Traylor now,” Sneed said.

Sneed is looking forward to putting it all together his senior season.

“Our strength going to be the run game,” Sneed said. “It's like that every year which opens up the passing game. Weakness will be just getting young guys to step up which won't be so difficult.”

Sneed is anticipating the start of the college football season and will be looking for certain types of offenses.

“I'm looking forward to seeing the RPO (Run Pass Option) offense and a lot more teams going up tempo and passing the ball more,” Sneed said.

Sneed says if he could only make two official visits vs. five he would travel to Alabama and TCU. 

Scout.com Take

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.
