Glenn ponders G-Day visit

One of the top linemen in Georgia will likely visit Georgia this weekend, but it's Virginia that he's thinking about a lot.

"I liked how they have their campus real simple," said Riverdale lineman Cordy Glenn. Glenn has an offer from Virginia and Georgia.

"Virginia emphasized their graduation rate – they explained that they are number two in the nation in graduating their players," Glenn said.

Academics are a big part of what Glenn is looking for in a school. He said Virginia provides just what he needs in that department, emphasizing that players who don't fulfill their academic duties are punished and those that follow through will be rewarded.

"If you don't go to class you get into a lot of trouble," he said.

The Cavaliers also impressed the young man by showing off recent graduates who have excelled on the professional level.

"They had pictures of their guys in the NFL and when they graduated," he said.

The trip to Virginia, which took Glenn about eight hours each way, put Virginia high on his list of potential colleges.

"I am still open, but Virginia is right at the top," he said. "Their graduation rate impresses me – but that doesn't mean that I will go there."

There was a bit of a curveball in Charlottesville: "Coach Groh said they were not certain if they would play me on offense or defense. I think everyone else wants me to play on offense – at least everyone that I have talked to."

The Bulldogs view Glenn as one of their top targets on the offensive line. Georgia has one commitment from an offensive lineman, B.J. Brand, and wants to flush out the rest of its offensive line soon.

"I think I may go to their spring game," Glenn said of a potential trip to Athens. He had already attended Georgia's junior day in February. "I want to see how their practices are run. What is the tempo of their practices?"

One more school may be entering the inquisitive junior's recruiting – Miami.

"I talked with Miami last week," Glenn confirmed. "They are going to watch my film and get back with me soon on if they will offer me or not."
