Robby Snelling, a four-star prospect, narrowed his final slots to Texas, UCLA, Arizona, Washington State, and Oregon. He was also courted by Auburn, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Arizona State, Boise State, California, Penn State, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Michigan, Nebraska and Tulane.
6-foot-3, 200-pounder pledge second to LSU. The caveat – it’s a commitment to playing baseball as a two-way talent like a left-handed pitcher and a powerful bat.
After a long journey and a lot of consideration, I am very pleased to announce that I will be committing to LSU to further develop my athletic and academic future!! Thank you to my teammates and coaches for supporting you through this process! @LSUCoachJ @ JKelly_49! 🟡🟣@LSUbaseball #GeauxTigers!! pic.twitter.com/PooxVUHijX

The Reno, Nevada native received an offer from the Tigers’ new baseball coach Jay Johnson when he was head coach at Nevada when Snelling was in 7th grade more than four years ago. Snelling committed to Stanford to play baseball as a 9th grader but recently dropped out. He had a recent visit to the Pelican State and was enthralled. Without Johnson, Snelling would not have considered LSU.
Despite being rated as the 29th best full-back in the 22nd class, Snelling has yet to decide whether he will play football this fall as a senior. However, he has also stated that playing both sports in college is very important.
In a recent home Derby, Snelling hit 21 long balls in a three-minute half. He can hit 94 out of rubber and is a power hitter whose exit velocity is 108.
Football and/or the MLB 2022 Draft could change everything but there is no doubt about Snelling’s exceptional athletic talent.
