I should no longer need to preface anything I say about recruiting—this early in the process—with my usual “there’s still a long way to go” statement, but for the moment it looks like current defensive back commit Nick Glass is still fairly high on Georgia despite the extra attention he’s getting from other schools (specifically Ole Miss, Tennessee, LSU, and Arkansas). And while he’s certainly being pro-active in taking visits and listening to pitches, judging from some of his statements, it doesn’t sound like he’s hearing a pitch so good he’s willing to leave Georgia in the lurch—yet.
“I speak to the coaches at Georgia every day and Coach [Bryan] McClendon started recruiting me since Coach [Rodney] Garner left for Auburn,” Glass said. “I think McClendon is doing a good job with that and even though they had like five safety commitments, no one has stepped up really at the strong safety position just yet. They also said some of them might grow into linebackers eventually. I think I have a huge opportunity at Georgia, so I just have to focus and keep working.”
Like EPSN 150 safety signee Tray Matthews and ESPN 150 cornerback signee Shaq Wiggins in the 2013 recruiting cycle, Glass is working on other targets in his class to join him at Georgia.
“One thing I learned from guys like Tray and Shaq is to be solid with your decision and just focus on getting physically and mentally prepared for college,” Glass said. “I hope to bring in Bryson Allen-Williams, Elisha Shaw, Raekwon McMillan and Kalavaraz Bessent to come with me to Georgia because Athens, Ga., is the best college town in the country. I do not understand how anyone can say no to UGA.” (Kipp Adams, Dawgnation)
We’ll see how much things heat up for him come fall, but it’s nice to see him staying true for now and working on other targets to come along for the ride.
