It’s been proven that training camps help players gain attention and get noticed on the recruiting scene and no camp has been better at that than the famous NIKE camps. Perhaps, no one has increased their stock more on this year’s camp circuit that Fort Walton Beach (Fla.) running back Glen Coffee.
This past Sunday Glen Coffee was named MVP of the LSU NIKE camp and he also posted the highest SPARQ ranking with an 87.59 rating.
“I still don’t have any offers, but I’m hoping this camp will help,” said Coffee. “Central Florida came up to the school last week and said they would be back and there would a good chance that they would offer.”
The 6-0, 195 pound running back put on a show in Baton Rouge running a 4.44 in the 40, a 4.25 in the shuttle, benching 22 reps and posting a 36.6-inch vertical jump.
“Auburn, Florida and Tennessee are all sending me handwritten letters and I get stuff from a lot of other places too.
My top six right now is Florida State, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Miami and LSU. Florida State is probably at number one on that list right now because I have always loved them, that is my team right there.”
During his junior season he finished with 850 yards rushing, 275 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns. He has a 370 pound bench press and 480 pound squat.
“Playing time is a big thing for me. I also want to make sure that I have a good relationship with the coach at whatever school I choose because I have always had a good relationship with my high school coach.
I want to be able to play somewhere I will have the opportunity to compete for championships as well. Facilities and tam chemistry is another thing I will be looking at it. If at all possible I would like to stay in the South so my family can come and see me play.”
He plans to camp at Auburn, Florida State, Florida and possibly a few others this summer.
