Can Jevan Snead Replace Vince Young? - High School Highlights

Going into the 2006 season, the top contenders to replace Vince Young as the Longhorn's starting quarterback are redshirt freshman Colt McCoy and the 6'3" incoming freshman Jevan Snead.
McCoy has the advantage of watching Young run the offense up-close for a season and he's already shown some off the field heroics, but Snead helped his case by enrolling early at the university and participating in spring practices. With an impressive high-school record, Snead was named to the 2006 Parade All-American team and was invited to the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp and the 2006 US Army All-American Game. In his last two years at Stephenville (Texas) High School, he threw for 6,571 yards with 67 TDs and also rushed for 1,384 yards with another 23 TDs. He completed over 60 percent of his passes, averaged 318 yards a game and went 23-2 as a starter.
These videos show off Snead's arm strength and quick release as well as his ability to run the ball.
