Mike Glennon Has Five Offers

Centreville (Va.) Westfield standout Mike Glennon is one of the top quarterback prospects in the state of Virginia and he talked about the latest on the recruiting front.

Mike Glennon put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season. In leading his team to an 11-1 season, Glennon threw for 1,800 yards, 18 touchdowns, and just five interceptions.

"I have good size, a good arm, and I make good decisions," Glennon said. "I'm a team guy first."

Glennon, 6-foot-6 and 195 pounds, has been busy preparing for his senior season lately.

"We're doing a lot of running and lifting as a team," he said. "We have nine starters coming back on offense. I've been throwing a lot with my receivers. We have big expectations coming into this season."

Glennon, who was voted his District's Player of The Year in 2006, has landed five scholarship offers already.

"Recruiting's going pretty good," he said. "I have five offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Duke, and now Miami. I haven't narrowed it down yet at all. I'm waiting to see what happens by the end of summer. I do like all the schools who have offered me."

While he's not ready to name a top five or anything yet, Glennon spoke about each of the five schools who have offered.

Virginia: "The academics are great," he said. "I really like the coaches there. I feel real comfortable there. I really like the campus. Plus, it's a good offense for me. UVA has a lot to offer."

Virginia Tech: "I feel most comfortable because of my brother (Sean, a quarterback there)," he said. "I've been going there for almost four years now and I've gotten to know the coaches pretty well."

Maryland: "It's really close to home, actually," he said. "It's only 45 minutes away. Coach Friedgen is helping more with the quarterbacks now and he's one of the best coaches out there for quarterbacks. Their style fits me well."

Duke: "Their academics are very impressive," he said. "I really like the head coach and quarterbacks coach. That would be something special to go in there and help turn their program around."

Miami: "That's the most recent offer," he said. "I just got that one last week. I don't know much about them. I'm gonna try getting down there this summer. The tradition there is top notch. Coach Nix seems like a real nice guy. They had an off year last year but with the new coaching staff, I think they'll get back to their old ways."

The talented quarterback prospect has already been asked several times about the situation with his brother being at Tech. How much of a difference will that make?

"I just gotta choose the best school for me," he said. "It would be great to go there with Sean but I have to make the best choice for me, go where I feel most comfortable."

Another school that Glennon is very interested in is N.C. State.

"The coaching staff there was recruiting me when they were at Boston College and they're still very interested," he said. "Their coaches seem really nice. Their offense is similar to what we run here. Their philosophy on offering quarterbacks is they must see them throw at their camp and that's why I'm going to it. I might also go to Miami's camp when I'm down there next month."

Glennon took in spring games at Maryland and Virginia. He went to Junior Day events at Maryland, Duke, and Virginia. He's been on an unofficial visit to N.C. State.

"I just wanna check out all my options," he said. "Then I'll sit down and find out where I feel most comfortable."

Inside the classroom, Glennon carries a 3.65 GPA and just took the SAT last Saturday.
