NSD: RB Trey Sneed Signs!

The highest-ranked commit of the class signs.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Florida RB Trey Sneed has officially joined Rutgers, signing with the program on Wednesday.

The three-star recruit out of Fleming Island High committed to Rutgers last April, and hasn't wavered since. The highly sought after Sneed picked Rutgers over offers from Duke, North Carolina, Louisville, Utah, Georgia Tech, Navy, Temple, Illinois, and others.

Sneed might be the most exciting prospect of the 2016 class, as his film shows an evasive running back who can turn on the jets at the second level and gain more yards after contact. Chris Ash did well to keep Sneed at Rutgers after Kyle Flood and Norries Wilson, who recruited Sneed, were both let go. Even better, Sneed has enrolled early and will get valuable practice time this spring.

Freshman Impact Index: 5 - I'm honestly not sure what to expect from Sneed in 2016. Josh Hicks and Robert Martin are the no-brainer top two backs, but beyond that, it's a mystery. Justin Goodwin was listed as a co-starter all of last season, but had a minimal role. He could remain a back-up or maybe even convert to cornerback if Rutgers needs depth. Desmon Peoples, who missed last season with an injury, should fight for snaps too. Charles Snorweah, who is a running back by trade but practiced with the DBs at times last year, might be an option too. Maybe Sneed will impress the coaching staff during spring practice and earn a role next season, but he could just as easily redshirt due to the Scarlet Knights' depth. When Sneed does play, though, expect him to be a lot of fun to watch.
