2014 DB Takes in Florida Practice

Saturday was quite a full day for 2014 defensive back Nick Glass. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound sophomore from St. Pius HS (Atlanta, GA) took a trip to Gainesville to see the Gators practice. He also picked up offer number fifteen, from North Carolina State. Get the latest on Glass' visit and recruitment here.

Nick Glass got a glimpse into the Florida program Saturday when he took in a Gators practice.

"It was fun, I liked it," he said. "It was very high tempo, players were getting after it."

Glass says it was great to watch the defense practice and get a feel for the schemes the Gators run.

"It's really complicated, I think they can switch it up and mess up opponents' quarterbacks, I fell like it will work fore the future," he said.

The 2014 standout visited Gainesville with another top 2014 athlete from Georgia, his close friend Demarre Kitt of Sandy Creek HS (Tyrone, GA). The two got to spend some time talking to Florida defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson.

"Once practice was over, I went up to coach T-Rob's office, me and Demarre, and they pulled Demarre aside and offered him. They said they wanted to see what my body type looked like, but probably within the next week or two I think I should get one," Glass said.

It's very, very early in the recruitment process for Glass, but he already has fifteen offers including Auburn, Oklahoma State, Clemson, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Georgia Tech. He says all the attention motivates him to grow.

"It feels good, it just shows me to keep on pushing and keep on working," he said.

"(I'm) a sure tackler, a ball hawk, I'm a leader on the field, very vocal on the field."

He plans to do a lot of traveling over the next few months, and definitely wants to visit Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, and possible North Carolina. He's also hoping to get back to Gainesville again soon.

"I'll be in Florida for Spring Break and that's when they have the spring game so I may stop by."
