Top 2008 lineman taking time in recruiting

The 2006 season was a combination of the best of times and the worst of times for Gilmer, Texas junior offensive lineman David Snow.

For much of the season, the Buckeyes were ranked among the top teams in the state and after a record-setting regular season, Snow and Co. seemed destined for a state championship run.

However, as ranked teams in every classification have learned this season, you can never take anything for granted when it comes to the state playoffs in the Lone Star State. Snow and his teammates learned that lesson the hard way when they were knocked out of the state playoffs with a first-round loss to Texarkana (Texas) Liberty-Eylau.

"It's tough to talk about to be honest," Snow said. "It's really disappointing. It's something that will motivate us in the off-season. We still have work to do."

While Snow experienced a low in falling short of his state championship dream, the season wasn't a total loss, as he emerged as one of the state's top overall prospects in 2008 with his dominating play.

In fact, Snow is one of three offensive line prospects in the Lone Star State that figures to be in the discussion when five-star ratings are handed out for the first time next year.

"I thought that I played really well (this season)," Snow said. "I still have some things that I can do to improve, but I was happy with how I played."

The 6-4, 277-pound Snow already has offers from Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and a host of others, but Snow doesn't appear to be in any hurry to make a decision.

"No sir," Snow replied when asked if he had taken any unofficial visits in recent weeks. "I've just been spending time with my family."

Texas and Oklahoma have been thought to be the early leaders for Snow, but it appears that he's keeping all of his options open.

"There's really not anything going on," Snow said when asked about the recruiting process.
