Glynn is ready for spring practice

Louisiana has several cornerbacks that appear to be on the verge of picking up their first scholarship offer and West Monroe product Tyler Glynn is one of them.

Tyler Glynn


Glynn, a 5-11, 171-pound cover corner with 4.5 speed, recorded 29 tackles and broke up six passes during his junior year for the Rebels.


There is a long list of schools that are sending letters to Glynn but a handful have shown a little more interest than the others.


LSU, Alabama, Kansas State, U-Conn, Miami, and Oklahoma all send me handwritten stuff,” he said. “I get mail from a lot of other schools but they haven’t really sent as personal kind of stuff.”


With the increased attention he has received of late, Glynn has an idea of where his first offer may come from.


“Right now, I think my first two offers are going to be Kansas State or U-Conn.” he said. “Kansas State writes me the most. Coach Fitz (Devin Fitzsimmons) is from Covington and he recruits the guys from down here. He told me they have a bunch of juco guys but he wants to get some high school guys. He said he knows me and Barkevious (Mingo) are friends and he wants to get us both up there.


“U-Conn contacted school the other day and asked for a copy of my transcript but so did LSU and Alabama. I just feel like U-Conn would be the first to offer before big schools like LSU and Alabama but you never know.”


While he waits on those offers to start rolling in there are some schools that he hopes will step up to the plate sooner rather than later.


“LSU, Alabama, Miami, Kansas State and U-Conn,” he said. “I’ve talked to all of the coaches from those schools and they are all top-notch schools both academically and on the football field. They all seem like good choices and good places to live.”


Coaches from those schools are supposed to be making a stop by West Monroe in the next few weeks to see Glynn in action and when they do they will see a player that has grown in more ways than one since the end of his junior campaign.


“I think they are going to see a lot more improved player than what they see on film,” he said. “Since this past season, I’ve bulked up and grown a little bit. I’m going to be bringing the heat on every play knowing that this is my last year. I’m going to leave everything out on the field and not leave anything behind.”
