Virginia Tech received a major commitment last night – its first of the 2004 recruiting class. Westfield quarterback Sean Glennon verbally committed to coach Beamer and company.
Glennon, who is the top quarterback in the state of Virginia, chose the Hokies over offers from Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. He had also received interest from Virginia and Notre Dame.
“I committed late last night,” said Glennon. “After the visit, I had a real good feel for the coaching staff and the program. I talked it over with my parents, and it really felt like the right place for me.
“My family is pretty excited. It’s good to get it over with.”
As a junior, Glennon threw for 1,776 yards and 21 touchdowns. A three-year starter, he has thrown for 42 touchdowns and only seven interceptions combined over his last two seasons with a completion rate of around 65%.
According to Glennon, the Hokie staff was very excited to hear his decision.
“They were excited,” said Glennon. “It was very tough telling other schools that I didn’t want to go to their school.”
Glennon plans on red-shirting as a freshman before jumping into the quarterback mix. He hopes his commitment will start a snowball effect for Virginia Tech.
“I hope this will get the ball rolling,” said Glennon. “I’m going to try to get other players to come with me.”
So has he been working on teammate Eddie Royal?
“You know I have,” laughed Glennon. “I hope we can have the chance to play together on the next level.”
Heading into his senior season, Glennon hopes he and Royal can help lead Westfield to a state championship. He injured his left wrist earlier this summer, but assures everyone that he is just fine and looking towards a great season.
“Oh I’m doing really well in practice,” said Glennon. “I’m taking snaps again and doing everything like I used to. It’s going really well.”
