IU football recruiting: Class of 2022 DL Venson Sneed flips from Tennessee to Indiana

Indiana picked up a commitment from Florida-based class of 2022 defensive lineman Venson Sneed on Sunday.

The Winter Park (Fla.) High defensive lineman took an official visit to Indiana this weekend and announced the news on his Twitter page.

“See you in the trenches,” Sneed wrote in his Twitter post.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Sneed was a verbal commit to Tennessee prior to a decommitment in November.  He had 28 tackles including 10 for a loss, three sacks and five hurries during his senior season.  He played on both sides of the ball and also played on the basketball and weightlifting teams.

Sneed told 247Sports’ Andrew Ivins he was impressed with IU head coach Tom Allen.

“Coach Allen is a great person. He speaks so highly of everyone and he’s spiritual, but he doesn’t impose that on anyone at all. He will teach you what you want to know.”

According to the 247Sports Composite, Sneed is a 3-star recruit, the No. 506 overall player in the class, and the No. 75 defensive lineman.

Sneed chose IU over Tennessee, West Virginia, Kentucky, Iowa State, Marshall, UConn, Buffalo, and others.

Indiana’s class of 2022 is ranked No. 27 nationally as of this writing.
