Three-star RB commits to CU Buffs

Stacy Sneed is the nephew of former CU defensive back Roderick Sneed

Stacy Sneed didn’t need to see the University of Colorado before deciding that’s where he wants to play football and go to school.

On Friday, the three-star running back from Mansfield Timberview High School in Arlington, Texas, gave his verbal commitment to the Buffaloes for the 2020 class.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Sneed is the nephe w of former CU defensive back Roderick Sneed, who played for the Buffs from 1999-2002.

As a junior last season, Sneed rushed for 1,246 yards and 15 touchdowns, while adding 22 catches for 434 yards and seven touchdowns. He averaged 10.9 yards per rush and 19.7 yards per catch. He also averaged 22.8 yards on eight kickoff returns.

According to Rivals.com, Sneed has 20 total scholarship offers, including from Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado State, Houston, Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas State, Missouri and Texas Tech. He visited Arizona’s campus in June.

This season, Sneed will be part of a star-studded backfield that includes Texas commit Jaden Hullaby and 2021 recruit Montaye Dawson, who already has a dozen offers, including from CU. Sneed and Dawson both rushed for over 1,000 yards last year at MTHS, while Hullaby rushed for 1,200 yards at nearby Bishop Dunne High School before transferring back to MTHS this summer.

In addition to his success in football, Sneed has helped Mansfield Timberview to two Class 5A state titles in basketball, including this past year.
