Four Star LB Back from CU, Decision Coming

Colorado recently offered four star Bixby, Oklahoma Linebacker, Jared Glover, and Glover took a trip to Colorado for an unofficial visit on Friday. he had a fantastic trip and is ready to make his decision this week between the Buffs, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. The BSN caught up with the highly-touted prospect between sessions at a football camp in Norman.

Colorado was the latest school to offer Jared Glover and they were definitely last but not least. Glover visited CU on Friday, with his parents, and is now ready to make a commitment to one of three schools. "It is between Colorado, Oklahoma State and Nebraska," Glover explained. "I really liked my trip to Colorado and that program is definitely going to be going up with the new coaches. Coach Hawk and the whole staff there are so ambitious. I went on a tour of the locker rooms and the stadium. I really liked everything I saw."

CU is recruiting Glover as a linebacker while many other schools see him as a defensive end. His preference is to man the center of the field instead of the edge. "Of my top three, Colorado and OSU like me as a linebacker and that is what I want to play. Nebraska likes me as a defensive end but they said they will also give me a look at linebacker."

Going into the trip, Glover said he had spoken with his father about CU linebackers coach, Brian Cabral, who is easily one of the more accomplished LB's coaches in the college game with his history. "I met with Coach Cabral and he was impressive. He told me about the players he has put into the league and the other coaches also told me about what he has done."

Glover did not have a chance to meet with any of the other Oklahoma natives on the CU roster as they were all gone for the weekend.

So with the impending decision, the star defender breaks down the interests which could sway him to any of his top trio. "Nebraska has great tradition and great facilities. All three of the schools have great coaches.

"Oklahoma State is in-state and they also have great facilities. Like Colorado, I think OSU is also on the way up.

"I really like the coaches at Colorado and the location. Growing up, I loved Colorado. It has always been one of my favorite programs."

His parents are leaving the decision completely up to him. "My parents do have their influences, but they trust me to make the right decision and I will make it this week. I will call all the coaches and let them know my intentions as soon as I make my mind up."

Coach Eric Kiesau is after Glover for Colorado.

The BSN and Scout.com will have Glover's decision story as soon as the info becomes available.
