Big News for the Rebels

OXFORD — Former Texas quarterback Jevan Snead said tonight he will transfer to Ole Miss.
Snead, who was rated as the nation's sixth-best quarterback by recruiting service out of Stephenville (Texas) High in 2005, left the Longhorns program after playing as a backup to Colt McCoy his freshman season. He visited Ole Miss' campus last weekend and chose the Rebels over Houston and Texas Christian.
“I just made my decision a few minutes ago,” Snead said. “I'm going to be excited working with them and in that offense. It's going to be a great offense to get me ready for my dream, which is to go to the NFL. But right now I'm ready to get there and make a big impact when I play and help the team out.”
Snead said he plans to enroll at Ole Miss in time for the spring semester. He must sit out the 2007 team because of NCAA transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2008.
