After missing on his first couple of attempts to take his initial official visit, Mission Viejo (Calif.) defensive lineman Dominic Glover made it out to Oregon this past weekend. The lineman had a great trip and the Ducks look very solid at this time.
Glover, 6-4, 240 pounds had to cancel a few previous visits because he was late in taking the SAT. The rush end finally took the test in December and received his results just a few days before Christmas.
"I loved Oregon, it was nothing like I expected," Glover said. "I had this vision of it being all trees and wilderness but it was nothing like that. Right when I got off the plane, I looked around and thought, 'this place is pretty cool.'
"The things that stood out were the incredible facilities, the coaches and how cool all the players were. David Faaeteete was my host and he was a great guy. He showed me everything around the campus and in Eugene and was just a lot of fun to be around. I thought Nick (Reed- former Diablo) would be hosting but he was out of town this weekend so I never saw him.
"I spent a lot of time with the coaches and they talked to me about my role there and how I would fit in with their defense. Coach Gray is the DL coach, I think it used to be Coach Greatwood but they moved him over to the offensive side of the ball. I talked to Coach Belotti a lot as well and I really got along well with all those guys.
"There was a huge group of recruits there, probably around 12-13 kids and I think a few guys committed. I thought about it as well but I want to take at least one or two more trips. I definitely don't plan on taking all five now like I originally planned. These trips are really tiring, I never realized that.
"I just got in a few hours ago and I'm wiped out. I can't imagine doing four more of these. My visit for this weekend looks up in the air now. I was supposed to visit Arizona but I just found out that the coach who was recruiting me is no longer there. My dad has been calling him for the last two weeks and we never heard back and had no idea what was up and then my high school coach just told me he was gone.
"I have Washington State set for (Jan. 26) and Oregon State is (Feb. 2). If I don't go to Arizona, I may try and move one of those visits up or I may trip to Colorado. Coach Neal from Oregon is coming by for a home visit this week and I don't have any other visits scheduled right now. I did like Oregon a lot and they're in a pretty solid position right now."
