Grossmont's Glazer makes his choice

Grossmont's defensive line could be one of the deepest in the country this year. DE Matt Moss has already committed to Texas A&M and, just this past weekend, DT Ryan Glazier (6-3, 290) decided to join him in the Big 12, however, he decided he wanted to a part of a different program in the conference.

"I committed to the University of Kansas this weekend," a proud Glazier said while waiting to talk to his academic advisor. "I was out there on an unofficial visit with my dad and brother and we all enjoyed our time out there."

Glazier didn't qualify out of Grossmont High School (San Diego) and decided to stay close to home by choosing to enroll at Grossmont.

"It's so close to home and I could save money," Glazier said giving reasons for choosing the Griffins. "Plus, their coaches are really good at getting guys out to four-year schools and that's what my ultimate goal was. I wanted to play D-1 ball."

Glazier was seeing some interest from schools like Kansas State, Iowa State, Washington State and Oregon State, but Kansas was the first to offer and that is one of the reasons he chose to become a Jayhawk.

"They were the first to offer so I jumped on it," Glazier said. "They showed how much they like me and when we were there the town just had a 'college town' feel to it.

"Everything there just revolves around the college and they always have great basketball teams and I think they're on the verge of having a solid football program too."

Glazier had a solid freshman season at Grossmont, posting over 60 tackles and 12 sacks as a pass-rushing defensive tackle.

"I can get after the quarterback pretty good, but I think I do really well against the running game," Glazier said. "I'm working this summer on getting bigger, stronger and faster. You can never be completely happy with where you are as a player. You always have to be working hard to get better and that's where my focus is now."

Glazier claims a 385 pound bench to go along with a 5.0 forty time.

Glazier will graduate this December and said he'll have three years to play two when he arrives on campus.
