"I'd like to stay in-state," said Glyndon Bolasky, "and they are definitely advantages like your family being able to follow your career. But that won't be my deciding factor." He added that the closeness to home is all relative. "It ‘s not like Tucson is closer than Tempe for me, because no matter where I play in-state my family will be able to come to my games."
Earlier this month, the second team all-state running back attended ASU's junior day.
"I liked it a lot," he stated. "I was there previously so I did get to meet some of the coaches already. But what really stood out is that they did talk a lot about academics and how they recognize their scholar athletes. They really put a lot of emphasis on that and that was real appealing to me."
Arizona, Georgia Tech, New Mexico State, and BYU have all offered scholarships. The Sun Devils would like to see more of Bolasky before extending an offer. "They are waiting to see how I do in their junior camp in June," he remarked. "I'm probably gonna go to their camp and Arizona's too."
During his junior year Bolasky rushed 161 times for 1,550 yards and 17 touchdowns. However he does believe that he can do even better in his senior campaign. "My strong point is having good overall dedication," he commented. "Physically I can always get bigger, stronger, and faster." Although he's listed as an athlete, he's being recruited primarily as a running back.
The recruiting process has been a true eye opener for the Sabino standout. "It kinda comes in waves," said Bolasky. "Some weeks are real busy and others are quiet. I never thought it was gonna be this busy at this time of year."
In terms of timing on his decision he's truly torn. "I haven't really figured it out yet," he explained. "I would like to wait to decide later in the year just so I can see all my options, but I haven't really decided if I'm gonna wait that long or not. I want to commit before my senior year starts, but I also want to take some trips."
