BREAKING: Willie Snead to Enter NFL Draft

nfl-logoBreaking news from BSU football tonight. Willie Snead will enter the 2014 NFL Draft and forgo his senior season. The release from BSU…

Willie Snead, a junior wide receiver on Ball State’s 2013 football team that finished the season with a 10-3 overall record, has announced he will forgo his senior season and declare for the National Football League Draft.

“We appreciate Willie’s contributions to our program and wish him well as he pursues his dream of competing at the highest level,” Ball State head coach Pete Lembo says. “We have encouraged Willie to formulate a plan to complete his degree requirements.”

Snead finished the 2013 season with Ball State single-season records in receptions (106), receiving yards (1,516) and receiving touchdowns (15). His 1,516 receiving yards in the 2013 season ranked third in the nation.

Snead completed his Ball State career ranked second in receiving yards (2,991), second in passes caught (223), second in touchdown catches (26) and first in 100-yard receiving games (13).

Snead, who is only one of two players in Ball State history to manage two 1,000-yard receiving seasons, helped the Cardinals to a 10-3 overall record in 2013 and an appearance in the GoDaddy Bowl. He helped Ball State to a 9-4 mark and a trip to the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg in 2012, and a bowl eligible season of 6-6 as a true freshman in 2011.

Snead was named to the 2013 All-Mid-American Conference First Team and was a semifinalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award this past season.

So there’s that. More on this in a bit.
