UNC In Top 5 For Elite WR

After North Carolina extended an offer in early April, Drew Gloster became curious about the UNC football program. So, Gloster, along with teammates Akeem Hebron, Shawn Perry, Tyron Jones, and Anthony Davis, took a trip down interstate-95 to check out Chapel Hill.

"I was interested in the football team so me and a couple of my teammates decided to go down and take a road trip and see how UNC was," said Gloster. "UNC offered me about two weeks before the visit and I've been talking to Coach Thigpen a lot and I just gained a real close relation with him."

The Wheaton (Md.) Our Lady Good Counsel High School teammates were taken on a campus tour including a look at player dorms, facilities and dining halls, and were able to sit in on player workouts. Overall, the visit impressed Gloster.

"I liked it," said Gloster. "I liked the facilities – when you first walk into the football building it looked liked you were in a hotel, the campus was nice, and the players reminded me of myself – I could get a long with them. It was a good visit overall, I got to see another school and it made me be able to narrow my choices down a little bit more."

When Gloster narrowed his choices down, the Tar Heels made the cut, due in large part to what the 6-foot-4, 225-pound wide receiver absorbed during the unofficial visit.

"I like UNC so I guess you can say my top five right now would be Virginia Tech, Penn State, Miami, UNC and Oklahoma," said Gloster. "I just like the way they are about themselves – they carry themselves in a good way, they are very family oriented, they're about the team, they got a great support staff as far as the fans go, they got a nice stadium and, I don't know, it's just UNC – their prestige and the players that come out of UNC are great. It might be one of the places that I want to be a part of."

To avoid distractions, Gloster hopes to make his final decision before his senior season starts, but can't guarantee it.

The UNC coaching staff is recruiting Gloster at wide out, but said they would like to add weight to his frame and move him to h-back.

From his wide receiver position last season he caught 25 passes for 362 yards and two touchdowns. He also contributed 24 tackles and two sacks on defense.
