Canton McKinley currently has two players on the roster at Ohio State
, Steve Miller
and Se'Von Pittman
, and sophomore quarterback Eric Glover-Williams
is the next Bulldog being recruited by the Buckeyes.
Glover-Williams, 5-foot-10, 165-pounds, shined at quarterback this season, putting up big numbers, but will be recruited as a tailback or slot receiver at the next level. He visited Ohio State on Saturday for the second time this season.
"It was a lot better than the last time I was there, and it was awesome," Glover-Williams stated. "There were a lot more recruits here and it was fun seeing all of them. We went down by the locker room after the game to see the players, and that was really cool. I talked to Steve and Se'Von a lot, and I also got to see Braxton (Miller) and Brionte (Dunn), which was really cool. They were all really happy and having a great time."
"I did get to speak to Coach (Urban) Meyer too, and he was really fired up," he added. "He said he was really happy that I came, and he wants me to get back down there as often as I can. I also spoke to Luke Fickell and Stan Drayton, and Coach Fickell asked me if I was ready to come down there and play for them. I told him they are one of my top choices, but I have two years left. I tried to picture myself out on the field, and how I would react to different situations."
With speed and athleticism in droves, Glover-Williams looks to fit the Meyer spread offense like a glove. Also an excellent baseball prospect, Glover-Williams will use this off-season to become bigger and faster.
"I'm in the weight room lifting right now, and I know I need to get stronger," he explained. "I'm also doing speed training, trying to get faster. I do have baseball coming up in the spring, but until then it's all about the weight room for me."
As he tried to balance both sports, Glover-Williams stressed that they do not conflict with each other at this time.
"I can do both sports if I manage my time right," he admitted. "I'm going to San Antonio for the junior combine with the Army All-American Bowl in January. Next summer, I know I will be going to camps at Ohio State and Oregon, but I'm not sure other than that. In the summer, I try to do football stuff every morning, and then go to baseball in the afternoon and evening. So far, there hasn't been a problem between the two."
Sophomore Eric Glover-Williams had quite a season for Canton McKinley, and is one of the top sophomore prospects in Ohio. He visited Ohio State unofficially for the second time this season on Saturday, and was impressed with what he saw in Columbus.
Eric Glover-Williams enjoyed his second trip to Ohio State.
