It's one of the most famous quotes of the Gary Patterson era, and it's a mantra that he repeats both in words and recruiting, and the latest pledge in the class of 2017 is no exception. Kenedy Snell, a 5'8" WR/RB out of Waxahachie is not only an accomplished football player, but one of the fastest athletes in the state, having posted a 100-meter time of 10.48 in the Class 5A state meet this past spring.
A rising senior, Snell averaged over nine yards per carry out of the backfield in 2015, compiling 778 yards and scoring 11 times. He added 557 yards and five touchdowns as a receiver, on his way to a 1300 + yard season. His big play ability stands out, not only on the stat sheet, but in film study. With quick feet and elusiveness, he can turn a short pass into a long gain in a hurry.
Rated a three star recruit by most services, Snell had nine offers and was drawing interests from several other Power Five schools. He chose the Frogs over a top three that also included Illinois and Michigan.

Snell is the ninth player to verbally commit to TCU for the class of 2017, which is on pace to be the highest rated group ever for TCU. He is the second wide receiver - joining RJ Sneed of Cypress Ranch - and the fourth offensive player overall, joining five star QB Shawn Robinson of DeSoto and four star guard Wes Harris from Aledo.
You can check out his highlights below; they may remind you of another undersized, underrated RB/WR that signed with TCU and became one of the best players in the Big 12 in his first year on the field.
