UCLA Involved With Georgia DB?

Nick Glass committed to Georgia nine months ago, but has continued to add scholarship offers, visit other schools, and explore his options. He doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon.

Nick Glass picked up another big scholarship offer over the weekend and it came from Alabama.

He has over 20 scholarship offers and this one is a big one.

"Alabama has been coming by the school to check on me lately, so I knew they were interested before I visited them Saturday," said Glass.

"My coach expected them to offer me, so when Nick Saban told me I had the offer, it was not that big of a surprise. It still felt great though because that is a huge offer. Alabama just won another national title, so it was still a great offer for me."

Saban detailed to Glass why the Tide wanted to target him in the 2014 class.

"Coach Saban likes how I play inside the box. He thinks I am a good downhill player and he also likes how I can play in space. He thinks I am the type of safety that Alabama needs."

The offer made the visit to Tuscaloosa a great one, but there was plenty more that stood out to this 6-foot-1, 202 pound junior on Saturday.

"I really liked everything at Alabama. They have it all over there and it was great. I am good friends with Geno Smith (Current Alabama player) and we got to talk a lot. It was great to hang out with him and it was a lot of fun to be there. It is hard to talk about one or two things because it was all nice there."

Glass has four more visits on his schedule at this time.

He plans to visit Clemson or South Carolina this weekend, then UCLA on February 9, Georgia on February 16, and he will be back at Alabama towards the end of February.

All of these schools are making a run at Glass, but he remains committed to Georgia at this time.

"I am still committed," he said when asked where he stood with UGA. "I still need to look around and all that, but I am committed."

When asked why, he said, "It is all about the relationship I have with the coaches, the players, and just the people at Georgia. I have been over there so many times and I know everyone.

"For me to go to Georgia, it is like me driving down the street to Wal-Mart. It is close to home, I feel comfortable there, and I still like them a lot."

Glass finished the 2012 season with 97 tackles, six sacks, and three interceptions.

He has transferred to Peachtree Ridge from St. Pius and he is on track to graduate early.
