KATY – Katy four-star running back Deondrick Glass has been patient throughout his recruitment but even more patient when it’s come to his production on the field.

He ended his freshman year as one of the most promising prospects in the state but he’s fought through various injuries to get back to top form and be stronger than ever this season. After he released a Top 10 before the start of the season – and then picking up offers from LSU and Virginia Tech – he showed that he’s well on his way to doing just that.

Facing a stacked box for most of the night, Glass carried the ball nearly 30 times for 140 yards in a losing effort. Even while running right into the teeth of the Mustangs defense, he was able to show that what had hampered him last season is no longer an issue.

“It felt good,” he said. “I’m not playing with a knee brace anymore, so that feels really good, considering I had that burden all of last season. I felt like I could make a lot more quick cuts, more sharp cuts, and I feel like I have more of a burst than I did last year – that it’s coming back.”

Despite making some headlines in regards to his recruitment to close out the summer, he said that the offers from the Hokies and Tigers haven’t caused him to shake things up just yet. He also doesn’t have any immediate plans to visit any of the programs he’s been hearing from for the time being.

“I’m just focusing on the season,” he said. “Obviously we have a lot of work to do.”


On Alabama

“They’ve been treating me good,” he said. “They’re one of the top colleges around. Them coming at me feels good and they’ve been coming at me hard. They really want me right now, so that’s really nice.”

On Georgia

“Obviously they’re a good team, they were in the championship last year,” he said. “I have family there, so that wouldn’t be bad, either. They’re a running back program and it’s a good school too. Coach Dell McGee has been really cool, we’ve been talking almost every day.”

On Oklahoma State

“I’ve been talking to Oklahoma State for a while,” he said. “[Teammate and Cowboys commit] Cole (Birmingham) is definitely an influence. It would be nice to play with one of my offensive linemen. He knows the way that I run, he can tell me more about it and I wouldn’t be alone, I would have someone to transition from high school to college with so that would be cool.”
