AUSTIN, Texas — Jevan Snead went to Mississippi to rekindle a promising football career that had stalled at Texas. By the time he left the Rebels, with a year of eligibility remaining, he ranked among the most prolific passers in school history.
Snead was found dead in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night by officers responding to a call about a deceased person near downtown. He was 32.
A police spokeswoman said the death was not considered suspicious. Police and the Travis County medical examiner’s office provided no further information Monday.
Gifted with a strong arm and speed, Snead went to high school in Stephenville, Texas, and became one of nation’s top recruits. He signed with Texas in 2006 shortly after the Longhorns won the national championship behind quarterback Vince Young.
