4-star RB Brian Snead signs with Ohio State in Early Signing Period

One of the best players in the state of Florida is now a Buckeye.


The Florida-to-Columbus pipeline is alive and well, as 4-star RB Brian Snead made it official today and became an Ohio State Buckeye.

The 5-11, 200 pound Seffner (FL), product is rated as the fourth best RB in the country, and the 82nd overall prospect in the 2018 class, per the 247Sports Composite. Snead committed to play for the Buckeyes in July, and chose Ohio State over Michigan, Florida, and others.

Here’s what the Sunshine State running back brings to the table:

Scouting Report

The Buckeyes hit another home run out of the Sunshine State. Brian Snead is electrifying with the football in his hands and definitely has the size (5’11, 200 lbs) and running style to be an every-down back. Tony Alford will have to work with him on being patient and not trying to bounce everything outside or reverse the field, but his athleticism and elusiveness is off the charts. Snead is excellent in making defenders miss and possesses breakaway speed. Snead and Jaelen Gill will be a lethal 1-2 punch in the future.
