White impressed by 2016 running back at camp

Monday wasn’t full with big name 2015 prospects for Will Muschamp’s football camp but several top underclassmen attended Monday’s portion of camp.

One of those prospects was 2016 running back Trey Sneed (5-10, 188, Fleming Island, FL High) who just wanted to absorb all of the information he could from the Florida coaches.

“It went really well, going out there my biggest thing is to go out there and get better,” Sneed said. “Of course I want to get the offer and impress the coaches but my main objective is to get better. I know the fall is coming up so I just use these camps to better my game.”

During camp Sneed got the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with running backs coach Brian White who showed the running back a few drills to work on.

“Coach White is a really funny guy but a good coach,” Sneed said. “He gave me a lot of good advice and good drills to do. He showed me a drill to help me get a wider base so that I can break tackles. He also taught me a lot of ball protection drills.”

Turning towards Sneed’s recruitment, he says that offensive coordinator Kurt Roper was the coach that has been recruiting him so far but now White is starting to join the mix.

“Coach Roper was the guy that was initially recruiting me and he came by this spring and told me how he was impressed by me,” Sneed said. “He told me that he wanted to build a good relationship with me and after camp he said that I lived up to the hype and now Coach White said he wants to start building a relationship with me.”

Sneed doesn’t have an offer from Florida yet but after Monday’s performance he says that he expects an offer sometime soon.

“The coaches said that an offer would come down the line for me,” Sneed said. “I’m patient with that and understand that because I understand the business of recruiting. Florida is a big school and when they offer you they need to know that you’re a good player but Coach White did say that I could expect an offer.”

If Florida does offer the 2016 running back the Gators will be in great shape, Sneed says,  because of his love for Florida.

“Florida is right down the street from me so it would be a big offer for me,” Sneed said. “My sister goes to Florida and I grew up rooting for Florida so it would be big. Percy Harvin was one of my favorite athletes growing up.”

Insider Take: Sneed is definitely on the Gator’s board now and an offer could come this fall after Florida is able to evaluate his junior season.
