Mars Hills Bible School (Florence, AL) 2013 lefthanded pitcher Glenn Irby talked one-on-one with Gene's Page about recruiting. Also included is game video of him pitching at the 17U World Wood Bat Association National Championship tournament held in Marietta, GA.

I know it's still very early in the recruiting process for you but have any schools started showing interest in you up to this point?
"There are a bunch of schools that have. UAB, Mississippi State, Alabama, Samford and Ole Miss are some that have."

Have you attended any baseball camps?
"I went to the Mississippi State camp, the winter pitching and catchers camp. I went to the same type camp but at Ole Miss this past year. (Marucci Elite team coach) Coach Rales (Chad Raley) was helping at the Ole Miss camp. He was doing the gun when I was throwing off the mound at Ole Miss."

What is your height, weight and age?
"I am 6-0 to 6-1 and weigh 190. I'm 16-years-old."
