Glenn takes in Georgia on visit

When you are one of the top offensive tackles around you get a lot of attention.

That's just what Riverdale star Cordy Glenn received this weekend when he visited Athens. Glenn said he was impressed with Georgia's campus and weight room, but that he was knocked out by the school's academics – that presentation impressed him.

"I was impressed by the academic center," he admitted. "Coach Richt told me about Georgia and making boys become men, and that things are not all about football. I think that's good advice."

"I didn't realize Georgia's academics were as good as they were," Glenn continued. "They said that they are number one or two in the SEC in graduation rates. They talked a lot about graduating players and how many had graduated from Georgia in the last twelve months. It wasn't something I was particularly concerned about, but it was good to know."

Glenn has a plethora of offers from SEC schools. He rising senior said he had been offered a scholarship by five conference schools – Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and most recently LSU.

"I might make a visit to Alabama in a couple of weeks from now," Glenn said. He said the Tide offered him about a month ago. Glenn may also travel south to Corral Gables to visit Miami, too.

As for the Georiga trip, Glenn brought his father, who liked what he saw.

"My dad was very impressed with everything," Glenn said. "They took us on the tour and gave us an academic presentation. It was good. They showed us around campus."

Still, don't expect Glenn to make any more trips to Athens in the near future.

"They said I didn't need to see me at camp – they said they already know what I can do," Glenn said. "I am leaving all of my options open right now.'

That doesn't mean Glenn won't wind up a Dawg. He said his requirements to commit to a school were simple, but with one caveat.

"I am looking for a place with good academics. I want to have a good relationship with the coaches. But distance, the distance from my house matters. I don't want to good too far from home," Glenn said.

How far is too far?

"Virginia is just within that limit," Glenn said.
