Ka'Lial Glaud hold one offer with more coming

LB/QB Ka'Lial Glaud will be one of the best athletes in the 2009 class. He has a list of favorites and two schools that are tied for the top spot. Come see what he had to say about his recruiting thus far, along with whose on his top schools list.

Winslow Township High School linebacker/ quarterback Ka'Lial Glaud has one scholarship offer from the Ohio State Buckeyes, and more offers are on the horizon.

Glaud has been talking to Syracuse and said he expects them to send him an offer "really soon, possibly in a day." Rutgers has yet to send the local prospect an offer, but he talked to Head Coach Greg Schiano last week when he came to visit wide receiver/defensive back Brandon Jones, who has committed to the Scarlet Knights, at his school.

The schools that have been showing Glaud the most interest so far are Maryland, Rutgers and Connecticut. He plans on attending Maryland's Junior Day and was suppose to go to Rutgers Junior Day last Saturday, but was unable to make the trip.

Rutgers is a team that is expected to be a big player in the race for the Atco, N.J. native's services. On the program, he said he admires the coaching staff for their persistence in trying to get the New Jersey prospects to stay in-state because he feels strongly about them leaving.

"They are close to home," Glaud said. "They haven't been able to keep the New Jersey athletes home, but the coaches say they will do it and I like that."

The fact that his teammate Jones committed to the Knights could play a factor in him playing for the Knights where because they are close friends.

"It matters a lot," Glaud said. "We are best friends and have talked about it before he committed and I said if he went there I would probably go there."

In terms of who is favorite school is right now, Rutgers is tied with Ohio State according to Glaud. Maryland, Tennessee, West Virginia and Penn State make up the rest of his top schools list.

"Ohio State is looking for me to play linebacker and I like the line backing core they got there," he said. "Maryland and Penn State are both close to home, and I like coach Paterno. With Tennessee, my coach's nephew went there and I've talked to coach a couple of times and he said I would have an opportunity to play there. West Virginia was my favorite for a while, but since the coach left I don't know how I feel about them."

The 6-foot-1 215 pound two-way player considers academics and a program's prestige to be important and they will be considered heavily in his final decision.

"I have to be able to get a good education with a place and see what type of degree I can get there and how it looks in the corporate world," Glaud said. "I want to go to a place with a good football program and have a good reputation."

In his junior campaign, Glaud threw for 1675 yards with 20 touchdowns and also picked up eight touchdowns on the ground. Overall, he said he feels he did well.

"I think it went really well," he said. "I broke my hand but then came back at linebacker and played really well."

Glaud is quite the athlete as he used to play basketball and plans on running track in the spring to help train for football.
