Previously 6-foot-2, 217-pound receiver Drew Gloster was hoping to make a decision on his birthday, August 10th. Is the Germantown (Md.) Good Counsel prospect still on schedule to do that?
"I'm going to try, but it's going to be tough," he said. "If I don't make it then I'll make it right after the season is over."
It appears Gloster will be leaning towards a later decision as another school has entered in the race for his services, though they have not offered yet.
"Georgia is just a great school and a great program," he said. "I'm close with coach Johnson and my teammate Akeem Hebron is really big on them and already committed. It would be great for us to go to the same school. I know they lost two key receivers and they are big on tight ends, so if I keep growing I could probably be a great tight end. Also Athens is a great city."
What's the potential of the two Rivals250 stars playing together in college?
"If the situation is right for the both of us, we'd love to go to the same school it would be great," he said. "We've talked about it and he committed to Georgia, but I favor Virginia Tech a little more. We try to hype the other school for each other and put it in the back of each others mind."
Gloster went on to name his official visits.
"I'll take officials to Oklahoma, Miami, Virginia Tech, Penn State and either Florida or Georgia," he said. "I'm also going to try to go to Florida for an unofficial visit in late July."
Two schools that are new to Gloster's list are Oklahoma and Penn State.
"Penn State was my first offer and they got the train going for me. They'll always be in my top five and I'm going to take an official with them. I'm tight with coach Paterno. They haven't been winning lately, but they're on the rise and bringing in the right players like Derrick Williams.
"Oklahoma was my eighth offer and I like them. The last few years they've been in the top three in the nation and they're in a great conference in the Big 12. They always bring in the best of the best and I felt proud to receive an offer from them. Their offer shows a lot, although I don't know much about their facilities or coaches. I'll take an official to them most likely too."
Gloster hasn't scheduled any official visits, but said he will probably take them after the season even if he commits in August.
After losing by one in the championship game last season, Gloster and the rest of his Good Counsel teammates are on a mission.
"We're going to be good and we'll be back in the championship," he said. "I just want to win the championship and bring it back to our school. To see Good Counsel be up there among the elite schools would be a great feeling and I just want to play well. I'm getting ready for the season and this year our school means business. We've got unfinished business as we're coming for the championship."
Gloster is ranked as the seventh best player in Maryland after hauling in 25 receptions for 362 yards and two touchdowns. He also took down 24 tackles for two sacks as he was named honorable mention all-state.
