Glover-Williams Continues To Add Offers

College recruiters have been regular visitors at Canton McKinley during the current spring evaluation period, and Eric Glover-Williams is the player they are targeting. As one of Ohio's top 2015 prospects, the offers are already on the table for the Bulldog athlete.

Although certainly not the biggest football player at 5-feet-10, 165 pounds, Eric Glover-Williams proved his worth last year as a sophomore starter for Canton McKinley.

He played quarterback for the Bulldogs, but Glover-Williams projects as a tailback, wide receiver or cornerback at the next level. He is one of Ohio's top 2015 prospects, and holds nearly double-digit offers.

"I took a few visits this spring, and I was at Tennessee and Ohio State," Glover-Williams stated. "I want to get back to both schools, and this summer I also want to visit Alabama, Illinois, Michigan State and West Virginia. I haven't heard much from Alabama, but they want me to come to camp. The same with Florida, and I'm interested in them and Alabama."

Several schools are sticking out to the speedster, and he discussed what he knows about each program.

"Alabama is a power school and people go there to win national championships, and I'd like to go there to help them win even more," he explained. "Illinois is a school that has a lot of players leaving after next year, so if I would go there I could maybe start as a true freshman.

"Michigan State has a good friend of mine there in Jermaine Edmondson, and he loves it there, so he would be able to show me around. Ohio State is a place that I know a lot of people there, and they treat me great when I'm there. I'd like to help them be even better than they are now.

"West Virginia is the school my dad went to, and he wants me to go see how I would like it there. Tennessee really caught my attention, and I loved it there. They treated me great and their facilities were awesome."

Glover-Williams is also an accomplished baseball player with designs on possibly playing both sports at the college level.

"Tennessee offered me for both football ans baseball, and that meant a lot to me," he admitted. "Baseball is great and I'd like to play at the next level if that's possible. Coach (Mike) Vrabel is supposed to be checking with Ohio State about me playing both sports for them.

"If it came down to me having to choose between the two I'd probably just stay with football. I'm a hyped person, and that's more of a football thing more than baseball. Right now, the two sports don't conflict with each other."

Although his summer camp schedule is not finalized yet, Glover-Williams is in the process of putting that together.

"I'm definitely going to camp at Tennessee and Ohio State, and West Virginia is another one I'm thinking about," he said. "I'm not sure about any other schools, but there will be more camps for sure. I want to see a lot of schools, because they're all so great."

Currently, Glover-Williams holds offers from Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee.
