Jevan Bryce Snead (born September 2, 1987, in San Angelo, Texas) is the current starting quarterback for the Ole Miss Rebels college football team. He transferred to Ole Miss from the University of Texas at the end of the 2006 season. Alongside Oklahoma′s Sam Bradford, Snead is considered the top quarterback of his class. CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco projects Snead to be the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Jevan Snead was a prep All-American, two-time all-state and two-time all-district performer for Stephenville (Texas) High School, who finished his high school career with a 23-2 (.920) record as a starter. As a senior, he was named to the 2006 Parade All-America team. He was also listed as a second-team All-American by EA Sports and he earned an invitation to the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp. Snead was selected to the 2006 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and finished the game with the second-most passing yards in the history of that game, as he threw for 147 yards and two TDs.
Snead originally committed to Florida but decided to go to Texas to be closer to home. Top high school recruit Tim Tebow later committed to Florida. Snead revised his decision immediately after a recruiting trip to Texas where he watched the 2005 Texas Longhorn football team beat Kansas by a score of 66-14.
