He's grown to be 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds and because of his size/speed combination, Gloster is now considered one of the top overall prospects in the state of Maryland. The Wheaton (Md.) Good Counsel star has been busy preparing for his senior season.
"We've been running and lifting three times a week as a team," Gloster said. "We're aiming to get back in the championship game this season. We're very excited about it."
Gloster, who is a full academic qualifier, grew up with basketball in his heart.
"That was my first love," he said. "I've been playing since I was five but then when I stopped growing I started to realize that maybe basketball wasnt for me. Thats when I really started to focus on my football career. I'm glad to be where I'm at now."
Gloster has good football bloodlines, too. His grandfather, he says, was the first African American All-American quarterback back in the early 60s at the University of Minnesota. He's hoping to someday add his name to that All American list.
"If I end up playing tight end, I think I have a big advantage because of my speed," he said. "I can run like most receivers so I think it gives me the edge. I'd create some mismatches. I'm running a 4.5 now but I have no doubt that I'll be down in the 4.4 range after I start training when I get to college."
Those are just some of the reasons why Gloster has become a national recruit. With scholarship offers from all over the nation in hand, Gloster has things narrowed down to three.
"I got it down to three," he said. "They are Virginia Tech, Miami, and Georgia. They've all offered me, too. Virginia Tech is only about three and a half hours away from home and they have a good program. Georgia's just lost a tight end to the NFL and I have gotten real close to Coach Johnson. With Miami, they're talking to me about becoming the next Kellen Winslow. They're real big on tight ends and they're like the top school when it comes to producing players at that position. My goal is to get to the league one day and Miami gets people there."
