Snelson has offers, is being patient

In the last 2 years there is no other running back in the Houston area who has rushed for more yards than Pasadena Memorial's Bo Snelson. The Maverick's running back is holding several offers already, but is more focused on his teams goals for now. TPI caught up with Snelson after Friday night's 49-17 win over Pasadena.

Pasadena Memorial running back Bo Snelson has seen plenty of success both individually and with his team.
The Mavericks went 6-3 last year and made a run 3 games deep in the play-offs before losing to eventual state champion Katy.

Snelson was named as the District 22-5A Offensive Player of the Year, he was named to the Honorable Mention All-State team, and was also awarded the Old Spice Red Zone national player of the year.

Snelson is 5'8 weighs 180 lbs. and runs a 4.50 forty yard dash. He benches 300 lbs., squats 460 lbs., and has a 34" vertical.

We caught up with the talented RB after his team's 49-17 win over Pasadena and got a chance to talk some about recruiting and goals he has set for this year.

"Right now I have offers from Navy, and all of the Ivy League schools.
As far as goals go, I know right now, with the offers I have, that my future is set. So, my main focus has become all about winning the rest of district, hopefully winning the district, and making it through a few play-off games."

Snelson's focus on team first is such that when the team was faced with starting quarterback Tate Gresham being out with an injury this week, Snelson stepped right in and led the team with 236 yards rushing yards and 4 touchdowns.

On the year so far Snelson sits on top of the Houston Area rankings with 806 yards rushing and has scored 10 TD's.

We also asked Snelson who else he was hearing from.
"I am still getting mail from other places, just the typical letters and questionnaires though.
I took an unofficial visit to see Air Force play Utah a few weeks back. Colorado Springs is a beautiful place. I think Air Force's offense is one I would fit well in."

For now it seems this talented running back is going to worry about the team first and let the recruiting stuff work it's way out on it's own.
