Four-star running back/cornerback Rodney Glass (5-11, 170, 4.31) from Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame is one of the most explosive players in the entire state of California for the class of 2006. He will be one of the key players as Notre Dame defends their Southern Section CIF Championship starting this Friday against Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham.
Glass has offers on the table from Boston College, UNLV, Oregon State, Arizona State, Washington, Ole Miss and Colorado.
At the present time, Glass hasn't set any visits. Since September 1st, Glass received a phone call from Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron and Coach Chris Tormey from Washington.
Arizona State also had a representative call the Glass household but he wasn't home at the time.
"I'm trying to keep everything neutral right now," Glass said. "I'm happy with the offers I have but I've been told that more offers are on their way."
"I don't have a preference what position I play on the D-I level," Glass said. "I play running back most of the time, but when I play defense I do pretty well on that side of the ball, too."
One thing you can't teach is flat-out God-given speed and Glass has been blessed with lightning speed and quickness.
Glass ran a 10.43 100-meter as a junior taking second in the state to Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft wide receiver Jamere Holland.
As a junior, Glass led Notre Dame in rushing with 1,326 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also caught 16 receptions for 187 yards. Glass was able to rack those yards while sharing the football with four-star cornerback/running back and USC freshman Cary Harris (6-1, 180, 4.4) who rushed for 1,236 yards and fellow classmate for the class of 2006 quarterback Garrett Green (6-2, 190, 4.5). Green rushed for over 800 yards and threw for close to 1,400 yards.
For his junior season performance, Glass was selected first-team all-league and first-team all-CIF Division III while helping his team to their third straight Division III championship.
In an earlier interview with Notre Dame Coach Kevin Rooney he had the following to say about his speedy star.
"I think he's an awfully good running back. But he could be an outstanding corner, too."
"Rodney has the same kind of burst that Justin had, though he's not as big," Rooney said. "Rodney is a little shiftier than Justin was at the same age."
"Rodney has great vision and has that burst that when he gets a little crevice he's a threat to score," Rooney said. "He averaged a little over 11 yards per carry."
Glass is a member of the Rivals.com Rivals250 team for the class of 2006. He is also rated by Rivals.com as the nation's No. 4 all-purpose running backs and made the Rivals.com preseason California Top 100 team landing as the Golden State's No. 21 prospect at any position.
