Charlotte (N.C.) Myers Park kicker Miller Snyder took his second official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder plans to head on one more trip next week before a decision is forthcoming.
"It went really well," Snyder said of his trip to Harvard. "You know, I got a chance to talk to the coaches and see the facilities. I pretty much spent the whole time with the players. It was a great opportunity and I really liked it, it's definitely being considered. It's not any easy trip, but it made things that much tougher. I've gotta see how things are, wait, talk to my parents, but I was really impressed."
What did he do at Harvard?

"I got there Friday and kind of hung out with the players," he said. "I met up with my chaperone, Andrew Berg. He's a great guy. I had dinner with all the players. On Friday, I went out to see Boston and then woke up and had breakfast with the coaches.
"I toured the facilities on Saturday and met with Coach Murphy and went back out to Boston that day. My time with the coaches was great. I was really impressed with Coach Murphy and what he had to say about Harvard. He made good points mainly about how it's not four years, but 40-years afterwards which I understand completely."
Last week Snyder was at NC State, so how'd it compare?
"I think it's just two sides of the spectrum," he said. "NC State's engineering and academics are good. ACC football is great, and then Harvard has the best education in the world right now for the opportunities and connections, the people you'll meet. It's still a great football school, they have won many, many Ivy League championships, but it's nowhere near the ACC, all of them have positives."
This week Snyder rounds out his officials with a trip to North Carolina.
"That's pretty much it," he said. "I'm going to North Carolina this weekend and I want to see the coaches in their element. I want to see practice for the Music City Bowl.
"I hope to have a decision by next Sunday. That's kind of where I'm at."
