In-state visitors

Two recruits from nearby high schools are scheduled to make official visits to the Colorado campus in Boulder this weekend. One is already committed to the Buffs and the other hopes to be. Get inside for more.

Connor Glenn, a 6-foot, 205-pound prospect from Windsor High School considers Colorado his favorite and is hoping he will get a scholarship offer this weekend when he visits Boulder officially.

"I've been interested in them for a long time and then they started recruiting me a stuff," Glenn said. "That's my number one school."

Kyle Slavin, a 6-5, 225-pound tight end from Chatfield High School, committed to the Buffs in June and will also make his official recruiting visit to Boulder, despite having been on campus plenty of times in the past.

Glenn said he has three offers at this point from Air Force, Nebraska-Kearney and Chadron State. He said he is being recruited by Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming.

Glenn said he is considering Air Force, but he is not a big fan of the military service component of playing football for one of the service academies.

"It's something that makes me be not as interested," he said.

Glenn has made unofficial visits to CU before and has watched the Buffs practice in the past. He said choosing between the scholarship offers he has and the possibility of being a recruited walk-on at CU would be tough.

"It's definitely something I want," he said of a scholarship offer. "But if it doesn't work out and they want me as a preferred walk-on or whatever, I'd do that, too. Definitely a scholarship is what I've got my eye on. ...When the times comes around, I might have to make that choice."

Glenn played primarily as a running back this season for Windsor. At the end of the season he began playing both ways, at running back on offensive and at safety and outside linebacker on defense. He finished the season with approximately 1,800 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns. He returned four kicks for scores as well. Glenn also recorded about 25 tackles in two games on defense with five sacks. Windsor finished the year 9-3.

Glenn said he speaks with both secondary coach Greg Brown and linebackers coach Brian Cabral, who visited his high school earlier this week.
