Springfield, Ohio four-star junior wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass holds scholarship offers from most of the schools in Big Ten, but the 6-foot-1, 184-pound receiver has started to attract interest from outside his region. This week, two SEC schools joined his list of offers.
"I got one Monday from Kentucky and one Tuesday from South Carolina," Snodgrass reported.
Snodgrass' recruiting contact at South Carolina is assistant coach Steve Spurrier Jr.. He did not start hearing from the Gamecocks until this week, but likes what he has learned about the program since.
"They just came on [Monday] night," Snodgrass said. "They like that I am tall and make plays. They didn't sign any receivers this year, and they are signing three next year that can come in and start."
Kentucky has been recruiting Snodgrass for a longer period of time. He expects to make a visit to Lexington next month for one of the Wildcat's spring practices and is excited to see the offense under new offensive coordinator Neal Brown, who has also been his primary recruiting contact on the Kentucky staff the last several weeks.
"I know they are moving to the Air Raid offense," Snodgrass said. "I like it because it gets five receivers on the field at all times and all they do is pass."
The recent offers from South Carolina and Kentucky have shook up Snodgrass' favorites list. After naming a top five of Penn State, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Ohio State, Snodgrass said he is back to being "wide open," and expects his recruiting process to last beyond the spring.
