Freshman Preview: Riverdale's Cordy Glenn

For the past few weeks, has been taking a look at former Georgia high school stars slated to begin their collegiate careers in the coming days. Next on our list is former Riverdale High standout lineman Cordy Glenn.

One of the top lineman in the Peach State, Cordy Glenn was rated as a four-star prospect and the nation's No. 15-ranked offensive tackle for the 2008 class.

Recruitment: It all came down Georgia, Alabama and Florida for Glenn's services and despite a strong push from the Gators and an even stronger push from the Crimson Tide, the former Riverdale star eventually chose the in-state Bulldogs. Glenn gave UGA his verbal pledge in November just a week after taking an official visit to the Alabama campus. "I like the academics," Glenn said of Georgia at the time. "I really like the coaches, too. I liked the way they talked. I liked how they talked about family life – that's why I felt Georgia was the place for me."

At UGA: The Bulldogs don't boast any seniors at offensive tackle. Glenn will have the opportunity to fight for playing time with a host of youngsters in sophomores Josh Davis Trinton Sturdivant and Kiante Tripp.
