Miami (Fla.) Norland wide receiver Brandon Snell has enjoyed the first few days of spring practice. He says that Norland, who played for a state championship last season, has returned to the field with a focus on once again playing for a trophy.
"Everything has been going good," Snell said. "Everyone is working real hard. Everybody is really focused."
So far this spring, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound wide receiver has seen Tennessee, SMU, Tulane, Memphis, and Vanderbilt at practices. One of those schools decided to offer him after their recent visit.
"Vanderbilt offered me," Snell said. "The coach said he liked my film and that he likes me as a football player overall. He just said that they want me and that is why they are offering me."
The Commodores are Snell's fourth offer joining Louisville, Rutgers, and Western Michigan. He believes Memphis is on the verge of offering him as well. At this time, he has his offers ranked and said that one school is clearly standing out.
"Right now I would say it is Louisville, Western Michigan, Vanderbilt, and then Rutgers, in that order," Snell said. "My cousin (Teddy Bridgewater) is one reason I really like Louisville. The way they are recruiting me as well. I liked the way the coach came after me and how he is recruiting me. I just like a lot of things about them."
Snell said that he expects to visit a number of college campuses this summer along with the South Florida Express, but he isn't sure of any definite destinations.
