Gareef is one of the top players in the Dade County area. To get a glimpse of him during his junior…
Dade County CB names his Top 3
"I have been working on attacking the ball at the highest point," added Gareef Glashen. "I have always had speed so now I am focusing more on getting stronger and becoming more aggressive when the ball is in the air."
Miami Carol went 8-2 last season but the Dade County star believes big things are ahead for his team this year.
"We really feel like we have the pieces in place to make a run at the state championship this year. I played a lot of cornerback last year, and I am going to play a lot of corner this year too, but they are also putting me at running back and linebacker. It is going to be a fun year for me."
Starting is nothing new for Glashen.
"I started varsity ball as a 8th grader for American Heritage, and then I transferred to Carrol and started my 9th grade year on up until now."
A few colleges have dropped by since the start of spring practice.
"FIU, Wake Forest (Mack), Tennessee (Eddie Gran), FSU, Lubick (Colorado State), Rutgers (Carson), West Virginia, and Pittsburgh (Thompkins) have been by."
Any coaches coming to the Spring Jamboree?
"I spoke with Coach Vaughn at Ole Miss this morning. He said he was going to be there Thursday when we play Northwestern. Coach Ronnie from Kansas State said he was going to be at the game too. Coach Cooley from FSU and Coach Popevich from FIU are also going to be there. It is a big game so a lot of scouts are going to be there."
The offers have not come in but the lack of film could be a big reason why.
"I am just now sending out my film. They all told me they were going to evaluate it and get back with me after that. I should be getting in a lot of offers pretty soon."
Who are the main schools involved right now?
"Ole Miss, Colorado State, West Virginia, Iowa, Tennessee, and the next one would be Minnesota."
What does he know about each school?
Ole Miss - "I do not know too much about Ole Miss, but I would like to learn a lot about them. I have a good relationship with Coach Vaughn so I want to learn more about them."
West Virginia - ""That is where I would really like to go. West Virginia, Ole Miss, and FSU are my three favorites. Robert Sands and Stedman Bailey go there. Those are two of my boys. I am real/real close with Robert Sands. It just looks like a fun area to play in. I like the Big East or the SEC. Either conference would be real good for me."
FSU - "They have been my favorite school since I was a kid. They have always been on top. I also grew up liking Ole Miss and West Virginia. I just like their players and staff, and I always wanted to play for Coach Bowden. If I do good at their camp; I feel maybe it will go well and I can go there. FSU, West Virginia, and Ole Miss. That's my top 3 right there."
Gareef hopes to camp at FSU, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, and West Virginia this summer.
