Glauser Is An Interesting Cowboy Offer

Oklahoma State offensive line coach Joe Wickline has shown he is willing to go just about anywhere to find a top quality offensive lineman. But Wickline could be making his most extreme home visit ever if he needs to visit the parents of Daniel Glauser, the latest Cowboys offensive line offer.

The 6-7, 320-pound Glauser has been making lots of noise opening holes and pass protecting with great proficiency for New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, N.M.

The military-based junior college landed Glauser when he decided to make the move from playing American football in his native Switzerland to bringing it to the United States. By no means a grade risk, Iowa and Georgia Tech offered him out of Switzerland but the NCAA did not accept his Swiss school transcript.

"My coach from back home is originally from Oklahoma," Glauser told Steve Robertson of Scout.com. "After playing with him for three or four years, he told me that I had a real chance to play in America if I wanted to.

"I got on the recruiting pages online and put my name out there. New Mexico Military was one of the first schools to contact me and they offered me a full ride, so I came here.

"I had offers from Georgia Tech, Iowa and a couple of other D1 schools when I first came out, but the NCAA wouldn't accept my Swiss transcripts," explained Glauser. "I had to go to a junior college, so everything will be good now. I am going to be able to get out in December and register for my new school right after that."

At NMMI, he has become even better on the field as he has perfected more his technique on the offensive line that his body really allows him to excel with. He has also become accustomed more to America and the lifestyle here versus the one he grew up with in Switzerland. He is much more academically in tune with the American college educational style.

Yes, and coaches around the country like Wickline have learned about Glauser. He has offers from Oklahoma State, Florida State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Memphis, Pittsburgh, TCU, SMU, New Mexico State, Northern Illinois among others.

The Oklahoma State offer is more recent but Glauser said he is very interested, and that may have something to do with his former coach in Switzerland being from Oklahoma. There is a connection there.

NMMI is still in its season as Saturday they host Pima C.C. out of Arizona in Roswell.
