Eric Glover-Williams

SCHOOL: Canton McKinley.

SIZE: 5-foot-10, 175-pounds.

POSITION: Cornerback.


POSITION RANKING: Number-19 runningback.


SCOUTING REPORT: Explosive athlete who can make people miss in the open field and has the speed to score from just about anywhere on the field. Tough, competitive kid who plays hard and runs hard, and will break some tackles despite being a smaller kid. Good ability to track and catch the football. One question is what his main position will be in college, but versatility is an asset. Slot appears to be the most likely destination. - Allen Trieu.

ON PLAYING DEFENSE AT Ohio State: "I'm happy to play defense and it's going to be fun," he added. "I speak with Coach (Kerry) Coombs a lot, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be on the defensive side of the ball at Ohio State. I'm looking forward to being more polished at the position."

"My mindset is to stick with what I know, and take the coaching I receive," he added. "I don't want to let anyone inside me, and just trust in my speed. Returning kicks is something I love, and something I'm good at."
