Glenn makes most of senior season

The Huskies were happy when Kamiak CB/RB Justin Glenn committed to them during the spring and the young man from north of Seattle did nothing to disappoint on the football field this year leading his team to the state playoffs. Dawgman.com caught up with Glenn recently and he talked about the injury he suffered in his final high school game as well as what he's looking forward to in the future.

"It was a tough way to end the season, but I have no complaints," Glenn said earlier this week. "I injured my foot and ankle, but it isn't bad at all. I basically strained the ligaments so it's really swollen right now and I can't really walk on it, but it isn't broken and I didn't tear anything so that's a big positive."

Glenn totaled almost 1,100 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground for Kamiak while also posting 16 receptions for 225 yards and three more scores through the air.

He also had a great season at corner, posting over 50 tackles with four interceptions as well.

"I had a pretty good year, but I would have rather continued playing," Glenn said. "I'm just going to heal up and get ready for basketball. I'm hoping to join the team this week, but it all depends on how my ankle is doing and how I can move on it.

"I'm the captain of the team and I play point most of the time so, I want to get out there to help my team anyway that I can. I'll get back out there soon though."

On the recruiting front, few schools have been calling since Glenn made it abundantly clear of where he's headed next year.

"Washington is where I'm going, there's really no question about that," Glenn said matter-of-factly. "A bunch of schools started calling and came up to Kamiak in September, but I told them I'm a Husky and that isn't going to change so they all pretty much backed off."

Glenn has taken in all but one Husky home game and said he's liked what he's seen from his soon-to-be team.

"They play hard all the time and it looks like they're getting better," Glenn said. "They've been so close and I know it's got to be frustrating not getting the wins when you battle as hard as they have.

"I like what coach (J.D.) Williams has been doing in the secondary. They have a lot of young guys playing as well as some experienced guys. Things will only get better back there with more experience and confidence."

Glenn hasn't set up a visit with the Huskies yet, but said he expects to do that next week when he talks to coach Chris Tormey about it.

"He told me they want to get some committed guys to come in with the uncommitted guys so they are trying to space things out a little," Glenn said. "Whatever I can do to help them recruit when I'm there that will be something I want to do because I want to play with the best players possible."

We'll have more from Glenn in the coming weeks as he sets up his official visit to Montlake.
