Glover happy with decision

Patrick Glover recently visited Arizona. Read on for his thoughts on the visit, his commitment, and more.

Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College cornerback Patrick Glover recently visited Arizona and remains confident in what he can add to the program.

"I feel I can bring a lot to the defensive backfield," Glover said. "I'm big for a defensive back and I'm pretty strong and ready to compete with any kind of receiver.

"I think the fact that I'm a junior college kid really works to my advantage, because I have some extra training that most kids don't have."

Glover's ability to immediately contribute is one aspect that made him attractive to the Arizona coaching staff.

"They have talked with me about their scheme and they think my size and flexibility allows me to play a few different positions," Glover said. "In their system they run a lot of defensive backs out there, so it's a good place for me."

The corner was on campus for the unveiling of the new facilities and he came away impressed.

"Honestly, it surpassed all my expectations," Glover said. "I figured it would be fun, but I had no idea it would be as organized as it was. Everything was planned out and I got to talk with the coaches, especially my position coaches.

"They all let me know they are happy that I'm on board and can't wait for me to get down there so they can start working with me."

In the meantime, Glover plans on doing whatever possible to ease his transition to major college football.

"I know what I have to work on," Glover said. "I'm a bigger guy, so it's really important for me to stay down in and out of my breaks, technique stuff like that.

"I'm not worried because I'm a hard worker and I will be ready to go."
