Glover nearing his decision

It might not have worked out the way that it was supposed to. Getting the offer from the in-state school that you grow up watching and supporting don't always come though. Glover isn't letting one team's priorities get in the way of his decision. He's on his way to his last visit more than likely. After that, he is staring at a decision to make.

Jared Glover not getting an Oklahoma offer up to this point has been one of the little mysteries of college recruiting so far. The four-star DE/LB from Bixby (Okla.) admitted that at the Oklahoma camp that he went and did the best that he could.

"Yes sir, I went to the Oklahoma camp," Glover said. "I did great down there at camp."

The offer did not follow the camp. However, a conversation did take place between Glover and the Oklahoma staff to figure out where Oklahoma is at. The news that Glover got, wasn't what he hoped to hear.

"They did talk to me about an offer and so far I haven't heard form them. They have offers out right now and they are waiting on those guys and what they are going to do."

Without the Oklahoma offer, Glover has evaluated his position and finds himself in another bit of a dilemma. Most of the other schools who are hoping to get Glover's signature in February are waiting to hear what Glover is going to do because most of them are running out of room.

"The position that I am in now, the schools that have offers to me, have a commitment at my position already and are waiting for me to commit. They only have one spot left."

One spot left. That means very limited time and Glover knows it. "I will be committing here sometime in the next week. I don't want to say too much, because I want to tell the school that I am committing to first. I can tell you that the team that I will be committing to will be in the Big 12."

Glover wasn't real interested in tipping his hand too much as to which school he is favoring. He wants to make the call and inform the college of his choice first and then let it be known. He did give some hints about the directions though that he is contemplating.

"I'd probably say Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. I am going to visit Colorado right now and I don't know what to think about them because I haven't seen the campus."

Nebraska hosted Glover for a Junior Day back in April and Glover admits that the Cornhuskers are toward the top of his list. "I really like Coach John Blake. I still like Nebraska, a lot. They are up there on the top of my list."

Big Red Report will keep you informed on Glover's decision. Glover had 91 tackles last year and including 21 sacks. He is rated a four-start linebacker by Scout.com, but at 6-foot-4.5 and 210 pounds, Glover could find himself with his hand on the ground in college.
