Good Counsel (Wheaton, MD) athlete Drew Gloster steadily adds to his offer total week by week. His latest offer, however, may speed things up. Last week, the 6-4, 220-pound prospect picked up an offer from Oklahoma and now holds formal offers from Michigan State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Penn State and Syracuse.
“I’m always anxious to see what other offers I’m going to get,” Gloster said. “But if I had to choose from these schools I’d be satisfied.”
Gloster has spoken to coaches from Boston College, Kansas and LSU recently and visited Virginia Tech for the Rivals junior day weekend. Right now, he’s not exactly sure where he stands with the Hokies but is certainly interested in their program.
“As far as Virginia Tech goes, I think they are interested,” Gloster said. “I don’t know. Maybe they want to see more. They might want to see how I do my senior year. They said they would come back to our school next month, so maybe they’ll offer then.

“I pretty much know for sure that I’ll probably make my decision before my season starts,” Gloster said. “Maybe at the beginning of September or sometime in August.”

An excellent and versatile athlete, Gloster, who plays wide receiver and defensive end, could play a number of positions on the next level. Possibilities include h-back, tight end, wide receiver, linebacker or defensive end.

“My little brother always liked Virginia Tech,” Gloster said. “I started watching them to see Mike Vick, because it was exciting to watch and see what he would do next. I like Virginia Tech’s style, the fans and their jerseys.”
Gloster now says he will likely not visit Virginia Tech for the spring game, but may visit there on Friday. Instead, he is considering unofficial visits to UNC and N.C. State this weekend. He had...
