Nick Glass verbally commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs this past April—long before the Bulldogs started netting multiple commitments at the safety position for 2013. And it is that recent development that has Glass a bit concerned and ready to look more closely at his other options, of which he has more than a few.
Glass said he’s still committed to the Bulldogs but there are few things making him consider his options. Georgia has five commitments at the safety position in the current class, which is a slight concern to Glass.
“Yeah, I’m a little worried [about the numbers],” Glass said. “Not of competition, but just how many they have.”
Smart and Alabama have stayed after Glass despite his early commitment to Georgia and have let him know they’re not giving up any time soon.
“They said they’re not giving up until the end,” Glass said. “And how they love big safeties and how they want me to be a part of their team.”
He added that the Crimson Tide were in serious consideration before he selected Georgia.
“Alabama was always pretty high on my list,” Glass said. “And they’re higher now since they have a lack of safeties and that’s a huge spot they need to fill.” (Woody Womack, UGASports.com)
Glass recently enrolled at Peachtree Ridge after deciding to leave St. Pius X for personal reasons.
Aside from Alabama, Ohio State appears to be back in the mix for Glass as well.
Glass committed to Georgia in April, but has been interested in Ohio State for months.
“They invited me to Friday Night Lights (in July), but I didn’t make it,” Glass said. “I was going to go to the Ohio State-Michigan game, but we had a playoff game the night before. I’m going to try to get up there.”
…Glass committed to Georgia over Ohio State, Tennessee, LSU, Clemson, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, USC, UCLA and others. He estimates he currently has over 30 offers.
“I’m committed to Georgia,” Glass said. “But I know Ohio State needs safeties.” (Bill Kurelic, 247Sports)
Personally, I’m not sure what all the concern is about as far as defensive backs. Georgia is losing quite a bit of talent at the safety and corner spots with only Damian Swann, Corey Moore, Sheldon Dawson, and Connor Norman returning with any level of playing experience.The incoming class of freshman and JUCO players will have to prove they can learn the system quickly, if they hope to get on the football field, and there is no guarantee that will happen.
In any event, it’s a long way to 2014 and much can happen between now and then, we’ll just have to wait and see how this all plays out.
