With 23 offers, Drew Gloster of Our Lady Good Counsel in Wheaton, Md. ranks as one of the top players on the East Coast. Gloster (6-3, 225, 4.53) is hearing from top programs from all over the country and at one point was showing some interest in Ohio State, but things seem to be cooling down in that department.
"Growing up, I was always a fan of Ohio State, but I haven't heard from them for a while," he said. "They would be one of my schools of interest if they were staying in touch."
An ex-Buckeye and current NFL cornerback got Gloster interested in OSU.
"Shawn Springs," Gloster said. "He opened up my mind to Ohio State."
Gloster could get a look at tight end, defensive end, defensive back, or receiver in college.
"I played DE on defense last year but I played safety before," he said. "I play wide receiver (on offense).
Gloster says that the schools recruiting him are interested in him for offense.
"Everybody is recruiting me as a WR that could slide down to TE," he said.
"I want to play offense," he added. "I want to be a difference maker like Terrell Owens. I see myself as difference maker."
Gloster has said on multiple occasions in past weeks that he has narrowed his list to three, but he gave us a top five.
My top five right now would be Virginia Tech, Miami, Oklahoma, Florida, and Penn State," he said.
A decision could come in less than a month.
"I really want to make my decision on August 10th, my birthday, but if I
don't make it then, I will
make it when the season is over," he said.
Gloster has a 1330 on the SAT.
