Eastern's QB Room Re-Built For Short & Long-Term
Cole Snyder to lead the charge in 2024. Looks like EMU has answers for 2025 and beyond as well.
Eastern Michigan’s roster had a lot of needs this offseason, but maybe the biggest one was to have a better plan for itself at quarterback. Specifically, EMU needed to find three quarterbacks to join the team this year. With the recent addition of Cole Snyder, EMU’s fourth former MAC player to transfer in this cycle for the conference’s largest transfer class of 16, EMU completed that very important task.
Eastern’s bringing on a big-armed high school signee in Jace Stuckey, another big-armed transfer (and former HS commit) from Minnesota in Drew Viotto, and now a one-year graduate transfer with Snyder. Stuckey and Viotto each graduated high school over the last two years; Snyder was a class of 2019 signee with Rutgers (Southwestern HS / Lakewood, N.Y.) before he transferred to Buffalo to be a two-year starter for Maurice Linguist’s Bulls.
Two years in the now-defunct MAC East is a lot of time for Snyder to learn a thing or two about the league, so it’s going to be hard to fool him on what the expectations are at Eastern Michigan.
Same with Tyler Walton, a graduate transfer receiver from Ohio.
Same with Oran Singleton Jr., an Akron-to-junior college bounceback slot receiver.
