Now that Snider has opened his recruitment back up, programs – around 25, according to Cardinal Authority’s Jody Demling – have been calling to inquire about where he wants to play. The first school to offer Snider a scholarship? Minnesota.
Quentin Snider’s first scholarship offer after de-committing from Louisville comes from Minnesota per Snider’s dad, Scott.
