Thaddeus Snodgrass is a Cat!

snodgrass

You know how I know a player loves Kentucky? He announces his commitment on Kentucky Sports Radio. This morning, Thaddeus Snodgrass pledged his allegiance to Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats in very fitting fashion. The four-star wide receiver chose the Cats over West Virginia, Louisville, and South Carolina, his favorites from a list that also included Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and Wisconsin. He’s the second commitment of the 2014 class, and he’ll join his friend, 3-star lineback Dorian Hendrix.

Let’s get to know the newest Cat with the best name in football:

294004

Wide Receiver

6’1”, 184 lbs.
Springfield, OH
40 time: 4.44 secs

Rivals: #24 Wide Receiver, #198 Overall
24/7: #31 Wide Receiver, #12 player in Ohio
Scout: #30 Wide Receiver

Twitter: @ThadSnod1
Received an offer from UK on February 11th and attended UK’s Junior Day on February 23rd

Snodgrass has the size and speed to compete in the SEC, with a 4.4 40 and a burst of quickness off the line. He also runs track, and according to his coach Eric Gillespie, ran a 4.3 40 at Ohio State’s camp in front of Urban Meyer and got an offer on the spot. Why did he choose Kentucky? He likes Neal Brown’s offense, the opportunity to play early in the SEC, and the close proximity to his home in Springfield, Ohio. Vince Marrow has been the head guy in his recruitment, and so far, he’s proven to be pretty convincing.

Fun fact: He’s become good friends with Drew Barker, who will also attend UK’s Spring Game tomorrow and may commit. Future Couch-to-Yeast combo?

Watch him work:

    Football commitments change all the time. I agree with what some people are saying that I will wait to get pumped till he actually signs. We saw what already happened with Ware.

    Getting commitments from kids being recruited by the big name football schools is such a huge improvement over the last coaching staff’s recruiting ability that it is easy to get carried away with the positive energy around the program right now tho.

    Waiting to see when we get a comment from someone complaining that he’s only a 3-star according to some rankings….it always happens.

    Don’t get your hopes up Big Blue Nation he hasn’t signed meaning after a 2 win season he will probably back out and go to a real school. Stoops Troops?? LMAO.

    20) LOL. A Big ten fan on KSR? Wow! I know the Big Ten is boring, but c’mon man get a life. I sometimes wish UK could play football in that joke of a conference, but then I remember how awful their conference is.

    Huge get and welcome to BBN. Snodgrass has All-American potential playing in Neal Brown’s system. He will absolutely torch SEC defenses.

    Wow theres so many negative people on this site. I was expecting to see a bunch of comments welcoming Thaddeus to BBN but I guess the comment section is for unhappy people to vent the disappoint from their personal lives. Anyway welcome to BBN Thaddeus we really really appreciate you choosing to play for UK. Its gunna be alot of fun.

    If Stoops wants to be successful he should really keep hitting Ohio hard. There are so many good players that get overlooked by O$U. It is too close to Kentucky and one of the best recruiting states. If he can continually snag some of the talent there it will really bode well for him. He is off to a great start!
