Glass Picking Up Attention

There are plenty of long and athletic forwards in the state of Georgia, and one of them adding significant attention is Tevin Glass.

As a junior, power forward Tevin Glass is expanding his game. The Norcross (GA) Meadowcreek High School standout is putting up a double-double every time he steps on the floor, and the recruiting attention is picking up for him as well.

So far it has been a good year for Glass on the floor according to AAU Coach Anthony Hardnett. Glass has been making the transition from power forward to small forward, and Hardnett says it is going well.

"He's been doing real well," said Hardnett. "He's averaging about 14 points and 12 rebounds right now. He is playing solid on defense and is playing more small forward than anything else."

Hardnett continued, "He's put in a lot of work. He's always shown the ability to step outside. One of the plusses for us last summer playing the four was that most fours couldn't guard him. At the same time it made him a little tougher. He was a slender kid, so to toughen him up I purposely put him at the four so he would have to rebound."

Recruiting wise Glass is beginning to see things pick up both in terms of mid-major and high-major attention.

"His name is popping up a little bit of everywhere," said Hardnett. "Tevin just took a visit to Auburn, and he has about three four offers. I know Georgia State is on him hard, Georgia Southern, Nevada is putting a press on him, Georgia hasn't offered but likes him. Also you have Boston College, Clemson, Old Dominion, Central Florida, Tulane, and a bunch of others are on him right now."

On the visit to Auburn he was with fellow AAU teammate Shaquille Johnson. Johnson ended up committing to the Tigers, and that could make an impact on Glass if Auburn were to offer.

"I talked to Coach (Milt) Wagner and told him that the main question for me was is Tevin going with him," said Hardnett. "Tevin and Shaquille are like brothers. Seeing Shaquille commit put an itch on Tevin as well, and Coach Wagner told me that he and Coach (Tony) Barbee were going to come see him play. Coach Barbee hasn't seen him yet. They really like him, but they can't offer until Coach Barbee sees him."

For now Glass is weighing all of his options, and is getting better on the wing, but the recruitment is definitely beginning to heat up.
