As most of you know by now, Ohio wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass has committed to play for the Wildcats. The Springfield native announced his decision live on Matt Jones’ radio show after being rumored as a “silent commitment” for over a month. That may or may not be true (from what I could find, it’s not), but he named Kentucky his leader a while ago and has been leaning toward the Cats since.
Snodgrass is rated a 4 star prospect by the major recruiting services and boasts a very impressive offer sheet. He held scholarship offers from: Ohio State, Nebraska, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin , among others. He was high on the Gamecocks for quite some time but the tide turned after he visited Lexington. Snodgrass’ primary recruiters are Neal Brown and Mr. Ohio Vince Marrow.
Snodgrass is listed at 6’1” and 184 lbs. Rivals.com lists him as thee #24 WR and the #198 overall player in the nation. Last year he recorded just 33 receptions for 400 yards and 5 touchdowns while playing both sides of the ball. He runs a 4.4 40-yard dash and has the quicks requisite to make an early impact in Brown’s offense.
Another upside of landing Snodgrass is the company he keeps. He is close with Kentucky QB Drew Barker and North Carolina WR Braxton Berrios, both 4 stars who have genuine interest in Kentucky. The interest is mutual, as the Wildcat coaches have extended scholarship offers to both players. Snodgrass is also friends with current linebacker commit Dorian Hendrix and the group of Ohio players who call themselves the “Cincy Invasion Crew”. The CIC consists of players like 4* DB Mike Edwards, 4*RB Mikel Horton, 4* WR Derek Kief, and 2015 ATH George Brown. He also know 4* safety Darius West.
