One of the most versatile players at this weeks' CaliFlorida Bowl is Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame athlete Rodney Glass. Glass could play a number of positions for the Cali squad and is arguably the fastest player on the roster.
Glass, 5-10, 175 pounds is one of the state's top running backs and cornerback recruits but he has had to learn a new position this week. Glass started the week off at running back but was moved to receiver on Tuesday.
"It's been kind of a tough adjustment because running back is all I really know," Glass said. "I'm trying my hardest to learn as much as I can but it's been a struggle at times for me. I'm a not a natural pass catcher and have never played receiver before this week. I'll still get an opportunity to return kicks and hopefully I'll be able to break one."
On the recruiting front, Glass has yet to take any of his official visits but that will change the first weekend of January.
"I'm going to Washington (Jan. 6) and Arizona State (Jan. 20)," Glass said. "Those two along with UNLV are the main ones I'm looking at right now. I haven't set my visit to UNLV but I'm going to soon. I don't have a leader among that group and I'll probably decide close to signing day. All the schools are recruiting me as an athlete and leaving it up to me but I definitely prefer running back."
Although Glass likely won't get to run the ball too much in the CaliFlorida Bowl, with his tremendous speed (state runner up in the 100m as a junior), moves and surprising power, one lucky school will land one heck of a running back.
