Kenedy Snell will soon showcase his speed somewhere other than on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.
The 2017 Waxahachie graduate, who joined the Horned Frogs alongside Indian teammate, Jalen Reagor, announced the decision Monday afternoon on Twitter.
Snell thanked TCU head football coach Gary Patterson and the coaching staff for the opportunity to play Division-I football.
"I love the game of football and I love everything that comes with it. I have had such a great time with a group of great players and coaches," Snell stated. "It's truly a blessing and again I just want to say thank you for the opportunity. I have talked to my family, close friends, and most importantly, God, and I have decided that I have to do what's best for me."
Snell added that he intends to transfer from TCI and is "excited about the unknown and I'm really to ball!"
The former three-star recruit as rated by 247Sports was previously recruited by the likes of Michigan, Illinois, Kansas, and Louisiana-Monroe, to name a few.
After his very first touch as a freshman at TCU went for a 14-yard touchdown against Jackson State on Sept. 2, 2017, Snell compiled just five catches for 93 yards and 88 yards on 25 carries for three total touchdowns the rest of the season. He has just seven carries for 23 yards this season — all coming in a season-opening win against Southern.
During his senior season at Waxahachie, Snell ran for 669 yards on 47 carries (14.2 YPC) and a team-high 10 touchdowns. He also hauled in 19 catches for 339 yards and four touchdowns and averaged 42.4 yards per return on the kickoff team.
According to FrogsOWar.com, Snell is the first TCU player to take advantage of the NCCA's new "redshirt rule," which allows for a player to utilize a redshirt year if they do not play in more than four games.
"I'm excited about the journey that God is taking me through," Snell added in his announcement. "I can't wait to start the next chapter. Let's get it!"
