SMU has had an incredible month of May so far when it comes to recruiting. The Mustangs have propelled themselves into the top-25 in terms of their 2021 class.
This past Mother’s Day weekend they had another incredible showing with three more signings including two on Mother’s Day. SMU received commitments from a trio of three-star Texas athletes. It started with Bridgeland wide receiver Dylan Goffney on Saturday. On Sunday they landed all-around athlete, Jayleen Record from James Madison and Mineola running back/ linebacker Trevion Sneed.
“The family atmosphere is what I love the most,” Sneed said on his commitment.
Sneed is a force of nature that can play both sides of the ball at Mineola. Mineola is the home of the 2016 class 3A football state champions and also home to former alum and Grammy award-winning artist, Kacey Musgraves.
Sneed as a junior did it all for the Yellowjackets. The 6’1 220-pound athlete had nearly 100 tackles on defense and had over 750 rushing yards with 11 touchdowns. Sneed values all his success though, to his family.
“Family is the most important thing in my life and that’s what keeps me grounded,” Sneed explained.
Despite all that personal success for Sneed, Mineola had a .500 record and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Sneed is focused on enjoying his final season at Mineola now that his recruiting is done.
“Just to enjoy my senior year not worrying about recruiting,” Sneed said on what he wants to do before arriving at SMU.
Sneed is one of the better all-around athletes playing in Texas today. He plays both sides of the ball with 110% energy every snap. SMU, for the time being, is looking stacked for 2021 and beyond. Sneed is a huge reason for that.
“I will always give my best and won’t settle for less I’m too hungry to sleep.”
