Glackin Opens Eyes

Scout.com was first in talking about the talents of sophomore linebacker Jango Glackin following his sophomore season. Following his performance at the Best of the Midwest Combine on Monday, Glackin's name will be talked about over the next few years as he's looking to be one of Ohio's top prospects in the Class of 2016.

Prospects jump onto the recruiting radar at different times throughout the process. Monday, Lebanon (Ohio) High School linebacker Jango Glackin became one of the most talked about prospects at the Best of the Midwest Combine held in Indianapolis, Indiana.

"I thought it went well," Glackin said looking back at his day. "I felt the combine had a great atmosphere and there were some great athletes there to compete against.

I thought I was going to be more nervous than I was because I've never been to such a big event before."

During the combine portion of the combine the 6-foot-2, 193-pound Glackin posted solid numbers in the 40-yard dash (4.58), Pro-Shuttle (4.03) and L-Cone (7.05). However, it was his showing during the instruction and one-one part of the combine that created major buzz.

"Being a sophomore, I didn't realize how big of a deal the whole day was until it was over. I didn't expect people to be saying so much about me after it ended."

While extremely happy by his performance, Glackin was more excited about being on the field with older prospects that already hold scholarship offers.

"It was good to see all the top athletes out there and see how I compared with them," he said. "Just being able to do drills with them and to see how I compared to them was worth the trip.

"I'm taking a lot of things away from this that I know I need to improve upon and will continue working hard to be even better."

Since the end of his season, Glackin has gained 20-pounds while increasing his speed and quickness. Indiana, Illinois and Cincinnati each have their eye on him with many more expected to follow in the coming months.
