One of the top players in Arizona next year will be Tucson (Ariz.) Sabino athlete Glyndon Bolasky. The family has been very proactive in the recruiting process sending out videotapes to 47 different schools across the nation. The results have been national attention and four scholarship offers.
Bolasky, 6-0, 195 pounds is a talented running back who rushed for 1,550 yards and 16 touchdowns last season. He's a north-south runner who combines a tough, physical running style with better than average speed and balance. He finishes his runs well and is usually the one delivering the blow on contact.
Despite his strong year, Bolasky was a relative unknown in the recruiting circles just a few months ago. The family sent out his tape and it resulted in four scholarship offers from colleges as wide ranging as Arizona ("hometown school, they've invited me to a lot of things"), BYU ("likes the discipline of the religious setting'), Georgia Tech ("nice to have interest from schools back East") and New Mexico State ("my first offer").
In addition, the athlete has attended Junior Days at UCLA and Arizona State and is hearing from schools like Stanford, Purdue and Duke who like the junior's 3.73 GPA.
"I'm open right now, I don't have a leader," Bolasky said. "I'm just trying to get healthy (had off-season shoulder surgery) and get myself ready for the Nike Camp (will attend NorCal Nike camp in May). I'm going to be playing both ways this year and have talked to my coach about playing some linebacker and safety. We have a lot of starters coming back so we should be really good next season."
