"I was definitely impressed," Glover said. "I liked it a lot. The facilities there was incredible. They have two indoor facilities there and the new one is just awesome, I didn't get to see the old one. The plans that they have for the new weight room and the new locker rooms are supposed to be done in July so I am excited to see what it is going to look like."
"That was the first time I had seen the University of Nebraska. I did not expect to see what I saw. When we were getting off of the highway I pointed out the stadium. My dad said 'You can't see the stadium!' I said 'Well, it's got a big "N" on the side and a national championship trophy poster. That's it.'"
Of course Glover got to see the scrimmage. He was also impressed by the tempo of the practice that Coach Callahan and Nebraska have, but most of all for the contact that they had for just being a spring practice. "The practice was very up-tempo. For spring football they were hitting people."
Glover also had a great opportunity to talk with a person with an Oklahoma connection and who might one day be his defensive line coach, John Blake. Glover was also aware of a few players being from Oklahoma on the current team nothing Zac Taylor, but he didn't get a lot of chances to talk to the players.
Bixby had a tough end to a very good year. They lost in the state finals. More than that though, they had the game literally won with about two minutes left, but an injury, a fumble and a touchdown pass that reversed Bixby's fortune. While the season didn't end the way that Glover wanted it to, he had a great year that led to many great honors.
"We lost in the state championship, 9-7. We are 5A. We were up 7-3 with minutes left. They got a first down at the four yard line and we held them. We sacked them on fourth down. All we needed was two first downs and kneel it. We get a first down and our running back hit the turf, went off the field, came back on the field and tried to play, but found out he couldn't see."
"The coaches sent in his little brother who is a great running back also, but he hadn't touched the ball the whole game. There was a delay in the season and our state championship was played on December 17. It was about 20 degrees when we were playing. The coaches gave him the ball and he fumbled. They threw for a touchdown after that."
"My season was awesome. I had 91 tackles, 21 sacks, 9 passes broken up and 30 tackles for loss. That was playing outside linebacker. I never had my hand down, but I would be in the "9" and we run a 3-4. So sometimes I can run a switch with my defensive end and it's just really up to me. We blitz a lot."
"I was honorable mention by the Daily Oklahoman and by the Tulsa World. I made the high school sports magazine in Oklahoma and I made their all-green country team. I was the only junior to make the list. It was 22 people and there were three linebackers. I was the only junior on the whole list."
Nebraska wasn't Glover's first trip. He has seen at least three other schools so far with another set for this Friday possible. After that though, he is looking at a busy month of April. "I visited Oklahoma's spring practice. I saw Tulsa practice. I visited Stanford. We are going to visit Oklahoma State maybe this Friday. We go to Arkansas on April 15 and to Kansas State on April 22. I got a busy month ahead of me."
"I am going to the Nike combine in College Station on April 22. From there I am flying to Kansas State, so that is going to be a busy weekend. They offered me and I will be visiting their junior day and their spring game. I guess they'll just show me the facilities like at Nebraska."
Glover is currently holding onto three offers, but none of them are from schools that are in-state. He hasn't given up on the idea that an offer could come from an in-state school, but he has noted how the schools that have offered have shown their interest and letting him know that he is their guy.
"I have offers from Nebraska, Kansas State, and Colorado State. No one in-state has offered. With those schools offering me early, that pulls a lot of weight. I mean that is important to me. They have shown me that they like me. I'm an Oklahoma fan, but I was very impressed at Nebraska. I am going to visit Oklahoma just like I will visit Nebraska though."
Could an in-state offer, specifically an Oklahoma offer, play a big role in Glover's decision? "It will probably be a factor, but I am not sure how big of a factor. Oklahoma hasn't offered and that is a fact. The way that I am looking at it right now is that I am not going to walk an anywhere. With an offer from Nebraska, Kansas State and Colorado State those are big schools. If I don't get an offer anywhere else I am going to one of those schools."
Glover is a big kid who more than likely will see his days in college with his hand on the ground. "Me and my dad measure all of the time and I am 6-foot-4.5 consistently, barefoot. I went to Nebraska this weekend and I measured 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds. Nebraska is recruiting me as an open side defensive end. I think that Oklahoma is the same way."
At around 6-foot-4 or 6-foot-4.5, Glover has good speed with a 4.7 timed 40-yard dash. That speed gives him one of the biggest advantages in making the move to defensive end from linebacker. "I'd say my quickness and speed off of the ball. Definitely the way that I use my hands."
