Offensive lineman Sergio Glenn from West Forsyth High School in Winston-Salem, NC was one of the more physically impressive prospects Pack Pride observed over the summer. He more than held his own at the adidas combine held at State back in June. At 6-6, 324 pounds and 5.24-second speed in the 40-yard dash, Glenn said earlier this year that he felt like he needed to show improvement from his junior season and that's just what he's focused on during the early part of the 2006 schedule.
"When you talk about improvement, I think the main thing that I focus on is that my team has improved. We're 2-3 so far but last year we started off 0-8 so I think as a team, we're getting better.
"For me personally, I didn't look as good on film last year as I needed to. This year, I've seen a big improvement. I went to all those camps over the summer and my numbers looked good but I know I needed to play better. I watch film after ever game and I've been doing a much better job of getting to the second level, moving my feet and getting on my man."
Glenn is still awaiting that first elusive offer but says several schools are showing interest.
"NC State is still showing interest," said Glenn. "Coach Cignetti texts me and lets me know he wants me to come up to a game. I've been hearing a lot from Bucknell recently. I've got a coach that used to play at Virginia and they've been showing a lot of interest. We're going up there for a game next weekend and I'm going to take them some of my senior film. Georgia is still showing some interest but not as much as they were over the summer."
As for favorites, Glenn has consistently listed the Pack as the top and that still appears to be the case.
"NC State is always the one I liked. They're in-state and I liked being around those facilities. Sometimes you just get a feeling at a place. It's a school I really like.
"Georgia is another school where I'd really like to go. I also like Virginia, Virginia Tech and Clemson."
Notes: A first-team All-Combine performer at the Durham Scout.com combine, Glenn was one of the top linemen in attendance. During the one-on-one's, "he was swatting folks away like a fly on the screen door," said Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Bob Lichtenfels. "I honestly don't think Sergio realizes his own strength. With traps that almost touch his earlobes that is hard to believe."
Scouting Report: "Glenn has a great frame, he is athletic and very strong. He has a very high ceiling at the next level. Once he puts everything together the [sky is] the limit for him." Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Bob Lichtenfels
