The Waxahachie product announced his intentions on Monday, saying he had “to do what’s best for me.”
“First of all I would like to give a big thank you to Coach Pand the rest of the TCU coaching staff for giving me an opportunity to playball here at TCU,” Snell said on his Twitter page. “I love the game of football and I love everything that comeswith it. I have had such a great time with a group of great players andcoaches. It’s truly a blessing and again I just want to say thank you for theopportunity. I have talked to my family, close friends, and most importantlyGod and I have decided that I have to do what’s best for me. With that beingsaid I will be transferring from TCU. There may be a lot of questions but I amexcited about the unknown and I’m ready to ball!
“I’m excited about the journey that God is taking me through. I can’t wait to start the next chapter. Let’s get it!!”
Snell appeared in just one game with TCU this season, rushing for 23 yards on seven carries against Southern in the season opener. Since he’s played in four or fewer games, he is eligible to “redshirt” this season.
Snell played in nine games as a freshman last season, rushing for 88 yards and one TD on 25 carries. He also had five catches for 93 yards and two TDs.
Snell was a three-star running back coming out of Waxahachie. He had interest from other schools such as Illinois, Kansas, Michigan and Louisiana-Monroe.
