Manvel defensive end high on SMU

2016 Manvel defensive end Hasaun Glasgow talked with Hatts about his SMU offer and visits.

After a taking a visit to SMU earlier this year and a little bit of a wait after that, 2016 Manvel HS (Tex.) defensive end Hasaun Glasgow picked up an offer from SMU last week.

“It feels really good, I like it a lot, they said they were only going to offer one defensive end, they were trying to pick who was going to get the offer,” Glasgow said, “I guess I won the race and won the battle and that speaks very highly of myself.”

Based on what Glasgow has seen so far, SMU is very high on his list, especially now with an offer.

“They're still very high, with what they've shown through visits and practices,” Glasgow said.

The 6-4, 225-pound defensive end also has offers from Louisville, Illinois, Memphis, Nevada and New Mexico State with four of those offers coming in the space of a week.

Despite coming off a tough 1-11 campaign, the Manvel defensive end was still high on SMU's chances coming into this season and looking ahead to the next couple of years.

“Very nice, they're a school that's on the rise and a school that is doing good recruiting,” Glasgow said, “I like them a lot, coach Morris he was down at Clemson, I met him before when he was a coach there so that's how I know him.”

Aside from stressing the family aspect of the school and the opportunities that would be available to Glasgow at SMU, coach Morris' message to the powerful defensive end has been simple.

“He thinks if I go there I can make a difference,” Glasgow said.

On the field at Manvel HS he has made a difference as he finished with 50 tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries and a defensive touchdown last season, but he admits there is still room to improve.

“I rush the passer really well and rush the quarterback and get him trying to rush plays and worry about me,” Glasgow said, “I need to get better at run reads and stuff like that though.”

Glasgow has already been on the campus before but he plans to take another visit to SMU later in the summer or possibly early in the fall.
