Former Texas and Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead has reportedly died at the age of 32, according to the Austin American Statesman.

Snead, a top dual-threat quarterback recruit coming out of high school, reportedly died in Austin, Texas on Saturday night.

Austin police are reportedly investigating the death.

From the report:

Austin police are investigating the overnight death of former Texas and Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead, but police were releasing few details about his death Sunday.

Multiple officials confirmed the death, which initially does not appear to be the result of foul play. A source close to the family in Snead’s hometown of Stephenville also confirmed the death, which occurred in downtown Austin.

According to Snead’s LinkedIn profile, he was working in Austin recently.

Snead, 32, committed to Texas over Florida coming out of high school. He transferred from Texas to Ole Miss following the 2006 season.

The dual-threat quarterback started for Ole Miss in 2008 and '09 and was considered one of the SEC's top quarterbacks.

Snead ended up going undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft and signed with Tampa Bay. He spent time on the Bucs' practice squad. Snead then signed with the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League, though he was released before the season.

Our thoughts are with Snead's family and friends.
