Glover excited to sign

Patrick Glover will sign with Arizona on Wednesday. Read on for his thoughts on his future as a Wildcat, how his season went, and more.

Scottsdale Community College cornerback and UA commit Patrick Glover just finished his junior college career and is happy with how it ended.

"We had kind of an uneven season," Glover said. "But the good thing was we finished as a team and I feel pretty good about how I played. I finished with 43 tackles, four interceptions, three touchdowns and a forced fumble."

Despite the gaudy stats, it was another aspect of his game that Glover was most proud of.

"Going into the year I really wanted to pressure the receiver and at the same time not give up the deep ball and I feel I did pretty well at that," Glover said.

Glover's physical and mental abilities stood out to the Arizona coaches.

"They love how I play and that I am a physical corner who gives them a little flexibility," he said. "They feel I am ready to come in and play.

"They also feel that I am older and that I am physically more mature and they want me to come in and be a leader."

Arriving on campus in January figures to enhance Glover's chances at playing early.

"They love having their junior college guys coming in January and being able to go through spring drills, basically that is like having a red-shirt year," Glover said.

Glover will sign on Wednesday and is counting down the days until he arrives in Tucson.

"January 11th is the day that I get down there and I believe I start classes on the 15th," he said. "I still haven't completely gotten my living plans figured out, but I'm not worried about that. I'm ready to start training and get started on my criminal justice major."
