Crunch Time for Love

The 6-4, 195-pound safety prospect from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton, Glenn Love, has moved up the recruiting lists rapidly in the last couple of months, recently receiving a scholarship offer from a Big Ten power, but Love tells us he could decide very soon...

It's getting down to crunch time for Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton safety Glenn Love (6-4, 195).

And despite getting a big offer from a Big Ten powerhouse on Wednesday, Love will almost assuredly choose between three Pac-10 schools.

"Michigan offered me today," said Love. "They are leaving it up to me if I want to take a trip there, but it's a little late and Signing Day is coming up. I'm probably going to choose between Arizona, UCLA and Cal."

Love was scheduled to take an official visit to Nevada this weekend and even with the Wolf pack coaches having an in-home visit on Monday night, Love decided to cancel the visit and choose between the Pac-10 trio.

In fact, a decision could come as soon as Friday.

"Coach Kish from Arizona was here on Sunday when I got back from my trip (to Cal) and then Nevada was here on Monday," said Love. "(Thursday) Coach Gould and Coach Littlejohn from Cal will be here and then after that Coach Wristen and Coach Walker from UCLA will be coming in. I'll probably decide after that last visit and know by Friday."

So would a decision keep him from visiting Michigan? "Probably," said Love. "Like I said, it's a little late for them to offer and I was pretty excited about getting an offer from them. But I've got it pretty much down to those three schools."

Love said that each of the three schools has strong selling points and that he's been leaning to each school at various times. "I couldn't tell you right now who would be in the lead," said Love. "I've been back and forth with each of them."

Hamilton finished the year 13-1, winning the state championship by knocking off Mountain View. This year, Love recorded over 100 tackles, ten interceptions (one for a touchdown), two knockdowns and blocked three field goals.

In the state title game win over Mountain View, he had two interceptions, blocked a field goal and recovered a fumble.

An outstanding student, Love has a 3.83 GPA and is fully qualified.
