Glover-Williams Hitting The Radar

Even though Canton McKinley lost a heart-breaker to Canton GlenOak last week, sophomore Eric Glover-Williams continues to show why he is one of Ohio's top 2015 prospects. He spoke with FoxSportsNext following the 24-21 defeat.

As you watch Canton McKinley quarterback Eric Glover-Williams in action, you have to keep reminding yourself he's only a sophomore in high school.

Even though his team lost a close game to Canton GlenOak last week 24-21, the brilliance of Glover-Williams was on display. His 51-yard touchdown run was a thing of beauty, and even though GlenOak kept him bottled up the rest of the game, his talent level is high.

"We definitely had a lot of opportunities to win the game, and I should have done more for my team, but I learned from my mistakes," Glover-Williams stated honestly. "I learned that we need to score in the red zone every time, but we tried our best and the team played hard."

"As long as we give that kind of effort, we will win a lot of games," he added. "I need to prevent turnovers, and as the quarterback, I need to to capitalize on the other team's mistakes and make them pay. I will get better."

Glover-Williams, 5-foot-10, 165-pounds, holds no offers to date, but he is definitely on the recruiting radar of top college programs.

"Ohio State wanted me to come to the Nebraska game, but I couldn't make it because of prior team plans," he explained. "I will be going to the Purdue game for sure, and I'm definitely very interested in Ohio State. I would also like to go to the Ohio State-Michigan game. I loved being at Ohio State's camp, and talking to the coaches."

"My coach told me North Carolina and Oregon have invited me to games, but I probably won't be going to them because of distance," he continued. "Places I would like to get to would be Michigan State, Nebraska and Michigan. Nebraska runs an offense similar to us, and I like the coaching staff. I'm very interested in Michigan and Michigan State, for sure."

Although he is playing quarterback for Canton McKinley, Glover-Williams projects as a slot receiver or tailback at the next level, as his skill set is perfect for the modern spread offense.
