Pair of Northside Vikings Commit to McNeese

WR Malcolm Glaze and RB Terrell Alfred both took official visits to McNeese State this weekend, and each also made the decision to become Cowboys. Read further to find out why Glaze went with MSU.

"Everything at McNeese was good," said wide receiver Malcolm Glaze (Northside HS). "It was a nice atmosphere. The coaches were cool, the campus was nice, and I liked what the teachers had to say. You could tell that they're going to help you succeed. McNeese has a winning tradition and it turned out to be a simple decision for me."

Glaze wasn't the only Northside prospect to commit, either. His teammate, RB Terrell Alfred, also pledged his services to the Cowboys and the duo from Lafayette will join former Viking and current McNeese WR Jereon McGilvery this fall in Lake Charles.

"It helps to have those guys from Northside at McNeese, because I know that I won't feel lost coming in," said Glaze, who caught 43 passes for 545 yards and six touchdowns as a senior. "The coaches - they were excited when I told them I was committing. My host, running back Javaris Murray, is a cool dude. He made it seem like McNeese is a really good place to be."

Scout's Take: Glaze has above-average speed and is a home-run threat in the return game. He's elusive, strong for his size, and isn't afraid to make the difficult catch across the middle or field a punt in traffic. He scored twice on kick returns last year.

Alfred is a north/south runner who is at his best pounding the rock between the tackles. While Alfred isn't a burner, he's a shifty slasher with good lower-body strength who wears down defenders over the course of a game by lowering his shoulder and lowering the boom. Alfred hasn't had much experience catching the football in Northside's base I-formation, but he's a good athlete who should be able to steadily improve on that aspect of his game.
