2022 Florida DE Venson Sneed commits to Vols

Recommended Posts



After taking an abnormally long time to pick up its first commitment for 2022, Tennessee football has now picked up two commitments in two days. Both of them committed as edge rushers in some form as well.

Following the commitment of in-state linebacker Elijah Herring, Florida defensive end Venson Sneed committed to Rocky Top Thursday morning. A three-star on Rivals and 247Sports out of Winter Park High School in Winter Park, Fla., Sneed stands between 6’4″ and 6’5″ and weighs in the 230 to 255-pound range.


Listed as a strongside defensive end on both services, Sneed could play multiple roles when he joins Tennessee football, which is apparent given the range of his size based on different websites. He announced his commitment to UT on Twitter.




UT has been the favorite to land Sneed for a while now, so his commitment is no real shock. However, committing a day after Herring at least gets the ball rolling on Josh Heupel’s first full recruiting class in Knoxville.

Sneed didn’t receive an offer from the program until Heupel took over. Rodney Garner and Alex Golesh have been targeting him, and he was likely already familiar with Heupel from his time in Florida coaching the UCF Knights.

Still, with the way the Vols were apparently targeting him, they clearly saw some underrated value. Versatility is likely a big factor, especially with what Tim Banks will do with his edge rushers in his nickel-based 4-3 scheme. Given the fact that Sneed plays offensive line and defensive line in high school, he provides that. Here is a look at his highlight reel.
