UW no longer showing interest in Brennen Glass

Ohio quarterback hopes impressive numbers, senior tape lead to scholarship offers

Brennen Glass, a class of 2006 quarterback prospect at Springfield (Ohio) South High School, had been receiving regular interest from the University of Wisconsin football program. But that was before the Badgers offered a scholarship to Canton Glenoak signal caller Mike Hartline.

"They showed a lot of interest for a while and then after they offered him they didn't," Glass said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

Glass has one scholarship offer, from Eastern Kentucky. In addition to the Colonels, he said the schools showing him the most interest are Miami (Ohio), Kansas, Akron, Toledo and Ball State. He said he is probably most interested in the schools that are giving him the most attention.

Glass has been exceptionally productive. He threw for 3,052 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior, and already has eight touchdown passes, about 900 passing yards, and zero interceptions in three games this season. He stands 6-feet-3, 196 pounds, and covers 40 yards in 5.13 seconds. So why has he not received more scholarship offers?

"Well last year I guess… I was just in shotgun like every game," Glass said. "They just wanted to see how I can move around and stuff. But they couldn't really see that. And this year we've got a new coach. He's put me under center a lot more. And it's kind of been balanced. The most I've thrown a ball in a game was probably like 21 times."

Last year, Glass estimated he threw the ball 55 times a game.

He said the schools that are showing interest would like to see senior film and he knows that he will be sending it to Kansas and Miami (Ohio) at the least. "Just to show them what I can do," he said.

"This is going to help me out a lot I guess, just to drop back and see the field and step up in the pocket," Glass said. "That's just what they want to see and how I move, my pocket presence and stuff like that."
