Glennon Wants Offer From State

Quarterback Mike Glennon has offers from some of the top programs in the nation, but he's not content yet.

Quarterback Mike Glennon has offers from some of the top programs in the nation, but he's not content yet.

The brother of Virginia Tech quarterback Sean Glennon, Mike is 6-6, 195-pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds. He has heard from the NC State coaching staff for a long time, and he hopes an offer might not be far off.

"I went down to NC State over spring break and I really liked the atmosphere there," he said. "I talked to Coach O'Brien, Coach Willis and Coach Bible and we were on the same page. They're very nice guys. The offense they're putting in there is basically the same offense we run here at my school, so that would be a really good situation to step into. They said I could come in and compete for playing time early on if things go as planned.

"Coach Willis came up here at the beginning of the month and Coach Bible was here a couple of weeks ago. I still talk to Coach Willis every now and then, but that's pretty much the extent of it. I'm definitely planning on camping there this summer, and I'm really hoping that's when they'll offer me a scholarship."

It is hard to imagine the Wolfpack won't offer the rising senior from Westfield High School in Chantilly, Va. He already has scholarships from Michigan, Miami, Florida State, Purdue, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Duke.

"It's been really exciting to get offers from all of these schools, but some of them in particular. I'm wide open right now, but you look at places like Michigan, Miami and Florida State and they're bringing in top quarterbacks every year. It's an honor to know they think of you in that same company.

"There are pros and cons to going to one of the very best programs, though. It's going to be tougher to get on the field, so you might be able to go somewhere else and be a starter. That's something you have to consider. There's lots to like about all the schools I'm looking at, so I'm just going to keep things wide open right now."

Last year Glennon passed for 1,800 yards and 18 touchdowns in leading Westfield to an 11-1 record. If his assessment of his own game is accurate, it sounds like he would be a great fit at NC State.

"I might not have the strongest arm, but I have good arm strength," said Glennon. "My accuracy and decision-making are my best attributes. I'm really accurate and I take care of the ball pretty well."

In addition to State, Glennon has unofficially visited or camped at Virginia, Virginia Tech, Duke and Maryland. This summer he will take a trip south to visit Miami and Florida State, and he will travel to the Midwest as well, perhaps to visit schools such as Michigan and Purdue.

"I'm really not sure when I'll be making my decision," he said. "It will just happen whenever I feel like the time is right and I know where I want to be. The earliest I can imagine it happening is September or October."
