Glover-Williams Camps, Talks OSU

Speedster Eric Glover-Williams of Canton McKinley said he felt fatigued while participating at Ohio State's camp at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Friday. That didn't stop him from proving he was the fastest prospect in attendance. For more on his recruitment and his opinion on Ohio State, read the full story inside.

Canton McKinley athlete Eric Glover-Williams was one of the standouts at Ohio State's instructional camp held at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Friday, but the 5-10, 165-pound speedster wasn't quick to pat himself on the back.

Despite winning the "Super Smokehouse" race, earned by the fastest player at the camp, Glover-Williams gave himself a "B" grade after what he said was a sluggish performance due to moderate fatigue.

"I felt like I could have done a lot better," Glover-Williams told "I was really tired because I have been going to a lot of camps and working out with my team during the offseason. I felt kind of tired today, but I still grinded out and showed out for my team."

Having been the first 2015 prospect to earn an Ohio State offer, Glover-Williams didn't have to prove his worth to the Buckeyes coaching staff.

Instead, Glover-Williams was brought in after the conclusion of the camp to speak personally with head coach Urban Meyer, who again reaffirmed how badly Ohio State would love to add the him in it's 2015 recruiting class.

"I talked to Meyer and he just kind of told me he wants me to be the head person of my class," he said. "I feel like that's a big accomplishment. Every kid wants to be a big poster for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Right now I am still working toward my season and looking forward to that right now."

Glover-Williams, who plays quarterback for Canton McKinley, said he enjoyed being personally coached by Ohio State assistants. The biggest aspect of the game he said he's working on is gaining a better understanding of how to make an impact despite not receiving snaps on every play.

"They try to teach me how to break out of my routes because I don't play that for my (high school) team – I play quarterback – so it kind of teaches me how to run things if I were to come to their school and a lot of other things I don't know yet," he said.

"It would be a different transition, but I think I could get used to it. I think a lot of coaches want to get the ball in my hands, so that wouldn't be too big of a difference, it would just be different (at the beginning) when it is snapped."

Though admittedly fond of Ohio State, Glover-Williams said he is considering other scholarship offers from programs such as Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Glover-Williams provided a top five of Ohio State, Tennessee, Michigan, Nebraska and Louisville, though those programs don't have any particular order. He said he plans to visit Tennessee in the near future.

Though Glover-Williams doesn't have a timeframe for when he'd like to make his eventual commitment, he said he knows exactly what he's looking for from the program he selects.

"It is more of a thing where you feel at home and where your parents feel would be a good place for you to go," he said. "Also academics and where you feel you can break away. Just where I go I want to feel like I am at home and feel like I am in Canton, Ohio. I think I am going to go into the season and after fall that's probably when I'll commit."
