QB Sean Glennon returned from his visit to Blacksburg yesterday with impressions similar to those of Westfield teammate Eddie Royal. The top quarterback in the state of Virginia enjoyed watching the Hokie coaches in action.
“I had a good time,” said Glennon, who took in morning meetings before sticking around for a practice session. “Me and Eddie really liked the way the coaches handled practice. They don’t really yell and scream, but they get things done. Practice doesn’t go on forever, but they accomplish a lot. It was a good impression on us.”
Unlike his teammate, however, Glennon will look to make his decision before the start of his senior season – possibly as soon as this month.
Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech are essentially the two schools in the running.
“Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech are the two that really stand out right now,” said Glennon. “I’m thinking it will be between those two. I’m not saying anyone else is eliminated, but probably it will be between those two schools.
“I’m going to let everything sink in for a few weeks and decide. Right now, I’m probably leaning a little bit towards Virginia Tech, but that may just be because I just came back from there. I was pretty high on Georgia Tech after I visited them. I don’t want to decide too quickly after a visit, which is why I will let everything sink in.”
The Virginia Tech coaches no doubt like Glennon’s efficiency, poise, and potential at the quarterback position. While they have used extremely athletic quarterbacks in recent years, fitting into the system would not be a problem for Glennon.
“They basically told me that they change the play calling based on what type of quarterback they have in the offense,” said Glennon. “When they had [Jim] Druckenmiller, they tailored the play-calling to his strengths. They would tailor the play-calling to my strengths if I was there.”
Look for a decision very soon from Glennon. For the Hokies, landing the top rated quarterback in the state of Virginia would be a good way to start off the commitments for the 2004 class.
