Mission Viejo, Calif., defensive end Dominic Glover has long bee considered one of the top defensive ends in California, but the build up to national scholarship offers wasn't coming as quickly as some thought. Well, that quickly changed in the month of May.
"I got calls from Washington State, Colorado, Colorado State, Utah, Boise State, New Mexico, Nevada, San Diego State, Oregon State and others that I can't even remember," Glover, who is 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, said.
"There were almost too many to remember, and I'm getting mail from too many schools to list."
At this point in the process, Glover has a top six of USC, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Arizona State and Oregon. He claims scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, Utah, Boise State, Nevada and Arizona.
He's already thought about what the perfect school will have for him.
"I want a school with a winning tradition and a strong educational support system," Glover, who has a 2.85 grade-point average and a 1200 on the SAT, said. "My parents also need to support the school I'm going to. My family's input means a lot to me. I also want to have a strong connection to the coach and the staff at the school. That's very important to me."
At the recent Los Angeles NIKE Camp, Glover was easily one of the camp's overall top performers. . He couldn't be stopped in the one-on-one drills with his long, lean frame and quick first step off the line of scrimmage. He also tested very well clocking a 4.87 in the 40, jumped 31 inches in the vertical and did 30 reps on the bench.
He's not sure what his summer plans are yet, past a stop off at USC's summer camp.
"I'm going to the USC camp for sure and that's probably about it that I know of. I won't have time to fly out and go to any schools," he said.
