Athlete Ka' lial Glaud has been widely believed to be one of New Jersey's top athletes for a while, but judging by his list of recent offers his stock is soaring off the charts.
Glaud, a 6-foot-2, 217-pound athlete from Atco (N.J.) Winslow Township, has picked up some big offers in recent weeks. Previously he held free rides from Cincinnati, Iowa, Maryland, Syracuse and West Virginia.
Where does he sit now?
"I now have offers from Boston College, North Carolina, Tennessee, Rutgers, Michigan State, Penn State, Minnesota and a couple of other MAC schools," Glaud explained.
"I've probably heard the most from Coach Lockwood from West Virginia and Coach Donovan from Maryland up to this point. I haven't been to any camps but I do plan on taking some unofficials."
While it's too early for Glaud to narrow things down much, there are seven schools sticking out at this point.
"I would probably say they would be West Virginia, Maryland, Boston College, North Carolina, Tennessee, Rutgers and Iowa," he said.
"The biggest things are going to be the coaching staff, not distance. I guess I'll be used to (distance). Basically education, how my family feels and how (the school) makes me feel."
Glaud plans on taking his official visits before he makes his decision.
