"I was talking to my brother and we were trying to decide a good time to do it," Gloston said. "He just thought that my mom's birthday would be the perfect day to do it. The best birthday present would be her not having to pay for my college."
"Northwestern and Illinois both have great education and their football team is doing very well," he said. "They seem like a good fit for me."
Gloston is a jack of all trades for Colonial High School. He plays running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive end, and linebacker. Both Northwestern and Illinois are recruiting him to play outside linebacker.
For now, Gloston does not have any visits set up, but he is making plans to visit both Northwestern and Illinois during the month of September.
In making a decision, Gloston is looking for a few specific things. One aspect stands out more than anything.
"The education of course," he said. "(Also) atmosphere for the school, the team, the coaches, and if I feel that it's the best fit for me."
