Gloster excited about Louisville offer

Troy Gloster's offer list continues to grow this spring. The 6-0, 215-pound linebacker from Olney (MD) Good Counsel already holds a dozen scholarship offers, including one recently from Louisville.

"I was excited when I first heard it," Troy Gloster said of Louisville's offer. "I haven't been in contact with Louisville at all. I guess they saw my tape and liked it and decided to offer. My coach is actually the one that told me about the offer. They called him and let him know they wanted to offer me a scholarship. I'm pretty sure I'll be in contact with them sometime here soon."

Though Gloster hasn't yet talked with Louisville about their recent offer he is familiar with the Cardinals program. "I've followed them for about five years and know they're known for their good offense," Gloster said. "I know a couple of their quarterbacks and wide receivers have gone on to the NFL. I've definitely kept track of them."

Gloster currently holds offers from Boston College, Iowa, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, UNC, NC State, Stanford, Syracuse, Towson, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

"I have twelve offers now so a lot of things are still going on," said Gloster. "It's been fun. I would like to visit a couple schools this summer and if I feel I'm ready to commit I will maybe sometime before the season. I'm not going to rush my decision though."

Gloster made 60 tackles and nine sacks as a junior despite fighting for tackles with Chris Pitsenberger. "Most coaches say it's my motor that they really love on the field," Gloster said. "I work hard on the field and play hard to the whistle. I thought I did well last year with the opportunities that I had."

Gloster said he plans to visit several of the schools on his list this summer, including Stanford, UNC, Michigan and Boston College. "I'd like to get out to Stanford to see how the west coast is," Gloster said. "I don't have any favorites so I'm looking forward to visiting as many schools as I can."

Gloster participated in the Nike Camp at Penn State last weekend and performed well in position and one-on-one drills. He says there are several factors that will help him make a college decision as the recruiting process goes forward.

"Where ever I go I just want to be comfortable and be around great people in a great environment," Gloster said. "I also want to go to a school with good academics."
