Snead's Transfer Official

The University of Texas confirmed on Friday that true freshman quarterback Jevan Snead has left the team and will seek to transfer to another school. Two other players, sophomore DE Chris Brown and sophomore OT Greg Dolan, have also elected to leave Texas.

In a release from Texas, Mack Brown said:

"All three guys told us they had a great experience, but they felt their best opportunity for more playing time was to transfer. That's totally understandable, and we appreciate everything they did for our program during their time here. We wish all three the best of luck in the future."

Jevan Snead saw the most action of the group this year, playing in eight games and completing 26-of-49 passes for 371 yards and two TDs. He also rushed for 87 yards and a TD. Snead's most extensive action came while filling in for an injured Colt McCoy at Kansas State. He threw for 190 yards and a TD in that game.

"I had a great time at Texas and can't thank Coach Brown enough for everything he did for me," Snead said. "Coach Davis has taught me so much. I will always be grateful for having the chance to learn from him. Colt is a great quarterback, and I enjoyed working with him and all the guys on the team. Texas is a great place to be. I just think that for me to reach my goal of being a starting quarterback, I need to go somewhere else. I'm going to miss all of my teammates, coaches and the great fans, but I will always be proud of my time with the Longhorns."

Greg Dolan has served as a backup right tackle for the past two seasons after redshirting in 2004. The Westwood High (Austin) grad played in 10 career games.

"Everything that has happened while I've been at Texas has been great," Dolan said. "Coach Brown and the rest of the coaches are awesome to play for. I love Texas, but I also love football, and I think I will have a better opportunity to play at another school."

Chris Brown played in six games as a true freshman in 2005 before sustaining a broken leg in the Baylor game that sidelined him for the season. The Texas High grad (Texarkana, Texas) was redshirting this season.

"My goal is to have an opportunity to earn more playing time, and I think the best chance at that is to go somewhere else," Brown said. "I had a great time at UT, and I'll always be a fan, but it's best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else."
