"We lost to Palatka in the spring," Tyress Glover said. "We lost our whole defensive line from last year so they were real young in the spring but now they're working real hard over the summer. We're looking pretty good right now."
Glover, 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, plays on both sides of the ball but projects as a linebacker in college.
"I'll do whatever I can to help my team," he said. "I like playing different positions. But in college, I'll be a linebacker. I think I have pretty good speed for someone my size."
On the recruiting front, Glover has one scholarship offer and is hoping to add more soon.
"Duke has offered me," he said. "A lot of others say they'll be letting me know in the fall. I've talked to South Florida, Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Ball State, Western Michigan, and UCF. They all seem interested."
Glover went to USF's SuperBull Camp last month and he talked about his interest level in the Bulls.
"I really like them right now," he said. "They're the one I hopefully get an offer from. They're an up and coming program. It's not far from home and I have family down there. I think they'd make me a much better player."
Now Glover is hoping to land that offer from the Bulls.
"They said after the camp that they like three or four more linebackers," he said. "All the coaches are pushing for different ones and they're just gonna wait to see who's the most productive in the fall and offer him."
Glover, who also took an unofficial visit to UCF recently, talked about some of the things he'll be looking for in a school.
"The academics are real big," he said. "Location is important and I wanna be in a winning atmosphere."
Inside the classroom, Glover carries a 2.4 core GPA and scored a 20 on the ACT.
