Glackin Racking Up Offers In June
Despite feeling under the weather, Lebanon (Ohio) junior linebacker Jango Glackin looked to impress coaches at Indiana's one-day camp held on Saturday. How did the 6-foot-2, 208-pound linebacker do? "I didn't feel as explosive as I have in the past but felt I did well," said Glackin. "I ran a 4.6 forty and posted a 4.1 shuttle and the coaches said they really liked what I did in drills." Glackin must have done more than have a good day because the Hoosiers coaching staff didn't let the underclassman leave without expressing their high interest. "Coach (William) Inge said I did great," he said. "Even though I don't really know much about playing linebacker, he said I did great and offered me a scholarship to Indiana. I got a lot more out of the camp than just posting some times as Coach Inge spent a lot of time showing me some of the finer details about playing linebacker. I'll use those going forward to make me a better player." From the sound of things, Glackin was even more impressed by Inge away from the field. "I got a chance to meet Coach Inge's family after the camp," he continued. "You can see he's a dedicated father and his wife and kids are great. I know my father really enjoyed getting to know them too and that will be important as I continue the recruiting process." The Hoosiers linebacker coach was not the only one to make an impression according to Glackin. "Coach (Kevin) Wilson was great," he said. "He knew who we were when we arrived as did all of the coaches. I really felt I was a priority to them and came away feeling they have been honest with me since I first visited Indiana back in the winter for their Junior Day." The Hoosiers camp has not been the only thing Glackin has been doing as he's attended several camps picking up offers along the way. "I attended the Michigan State camp on June 1-st and felt I did pretty well," he said. "Coach (Harlon) Barnett said they are really interested in me but that they are not ready to offer yet. However, I got my first offer after that camp as Buffalo offered me the next day. "I got a chance to speak with Coach (Jeff) Quinn and he's a really good guy and I look forward to visiting the Buffalo campus and meeting him. With them being my first offer, I'll always remember that and have learned how great of an academic school Buffalo is. So I look forward to visiting their campus and learning more about the program. "I also attended the Bowling Green satellite camp at Lakota West High School and their coaches were also great. Coach (Dino) Babers is a great person and I really liked what he had to say about football and life. Coach (Mike) Mickens is my recruiting coach and he's been great and honest about everything since he came to see me. "Coach (Tom) Kaufman coaches their linebacker and it was fun working with him at camp. It was real interesting as he pulled me aside during a water break and said I had an offer and that I could go sit down. "I attended camp at Cincinnati next and Coach (Ben) Needham from Kent State was there working with the linebacker. He liked what I did at camp and offered me after camp so I look forward to learning more about them too. "Next, I went up to the Akron satellite camp in Kettering (Ohio) to meet their coaches. I was really surprised that they offered me when I showed up. Coach (Terry) Bowden is a neat person and I enjoyed talking with him. I also spoke with Coach (Chuck) Amoto and you can tell he's coached a lot of great football players. I've heard about Akron's facilities and look forward to visiting there soon." While Glackin is looking forward to a big junior season, he also is planning to attend a few more camps in the coming weeks. "Right now the plan is to attend camp at Ohio State and maybe try and camp or visit some other schools like Kentucky and Michigan as well," he said. "I know Kentucky has a camp in July and I might try and attend that one. I'll have to look at what Michigan has available to see if I can attend one of their camps."
