How he got here: Snodgrass was the last player to commit to Mike Riley, doing so at midfield of Memorial Stadium half an hour before Riley’s final game against Iowa in November 2017. The York standout moved to quarterback out of necessity as a senior but will begin at inside linebacker for Nebraska after being told by the previous staff he would be a tight end. His limited number of total offers is more indicative of his early commitment and well-known Husker fandom than a lack of interest from other programs. The son of successful York coach Glen Snodgrass also has a winning pedigree, helping the Dukes to the Class B state title in 2017 and a state semifinal appearance this fall despite a pair of injured ankles.

Our take: Perhaps “athlete” is still the best term to describe the multi-sport standout, even though he finally gained some clarity about his position this month from Frost’s staff. Inside linebacker might be his strongest position — which he played through his sophomore season before moving outside for the team’s sake — but he could become a viable option at outside ’backer with a little more size and speed. Snodgrass also has experience excelling as both a quarterback and pass catcher. Add the fact that he grew up around the sport as a coach’s son and Husker fan, and there are reasons aplenty to expect him to find a niche and thrive.

They said it: “My knowledge of the game, my physicality are my best traits. I don’t have one definite strength, but I feel like I don’t have very many weaknesses.” — Snodgrass
