Joseph Glenn talks recruiting
"It was in December when Wake Forest offered," said Joseph Glenn. "They told me I had a full ride scholarship offer, and if I were to accept it they would take it. I really don't know a lot about the program. I'm doing some research and see that they have a good history of going to bowls and winning games."
Glenn hasn't gotten the opportunity to make the trip to Winston-Salem yet. He has been to two Junior Day events in Lubbock and College Station.
"Texas A&M was fun," Glenn said. "I didn't really get the attention there I was expecting.
"At Texas Tech, I got so much attention I felt like I was the only person there. On the first day I was. The next day though there were a lot of people and still the coaches showed be a lot of love. I have an idea on whether or not [Texas Tech] will offer, but I can't say for sure."
Glenn rushed for more than 1,500 yards in his junior season averaging 6.7 yards-per-carry. He is also a dangerous kickoff return man and was recognized as All-District at the position.
"As a sophomore I had 1,100 yards and 13 touchdowns and was named Newcomer of the Year in central Texas," Glenn said.
"This year I had 24 rushing touchdowns, one receiving touchdown, and two off kickoff returns. I have explosive speed and the ability to find the endzone.
"My best game was probably our opener against Burnet. I had 260 yards and three touchdowns and a kickoff return for a touchdown in that one."
Glenn had more than 100 yards rushing in seven out of the Buffaloes' 11 games in 2011. Unfortunately, they were defeated in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight season.
"I think I can do ever more next season," said Glenn, "but my goal as a senior is to finally make it out of the first round and see what happens."
This past season Glenn got to play with his older brother, Lepear Willrich, a defensive tackle who signed with West Texas A&M in February. Glenn competes in the 4X1, 4X2, and the 100 meter dash for Giddings and qualified for a regional meet held this weekend in Austin.
