Three schools are the favorites of Drew Gloster, a 6-4, 220-pound wide receiver/defensive end out of Good Counsel High School in Wheaton, Maryland. A tremendous athlete, Gloster was timed at 4.53 in the 40-yard dash this spring and is being recruited to play either wide receiver or h-back by his top three.
“I’ve narrowed it down to three schools – Virginia Tech, Miami and Florida,” Gloster said. “I feel that those three are the best fits for me. They are all win/win situations for me.”
What stands out about each program?
“I’ll start off with Virginia Tech,” Gloster said. “Virginia Tech is really a win/win situation for me. It’s close to home and it’s in the ACC, so my parents would be able to see me a lot and they would be able to see a lot of my games in person. I get along with the coaches. They have great facilities. And the quarterback situation is wonderful. They signed Ike Whitaker in last year’s class and Marcus Vick would be a senior my freshman year.
“Over the past few months, I’ve developed a great relationship with [Miamitight ends] coach [Mario] Cristobal and [linebackers] coach [Vernon] Hargreaves. There’s not much else to say about Miami. They are the U. It’s a kid’s dream to go play there. I just feel blessed to be recruited by a program with such a high prestige as Miami.
“A few weeks ago, I met [Florida head coach] Urban Meyer and was really impressed with him. He’s all about making his players better men on and off the field. That’s how I was raised. I think that’s what he’s all about. He wants to make his players better football players and also good people. Me and the wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales talk a lot on the phone. He’s a fun guy to be around. And also, the wide receivers corps has been excellent for the past three years. Chris Leak would still be there when I got there, too.”
Gloster has only been able to visit one of his top three schools. This summer, he plans to visit at least one of the other two.
“I already saw Virginia Tech earlier this year,” Gloster said. “I’m going to try and see them one more time this summer. I’m going to see Florida sometime in July. As for Miami, I don’t think I’ll have a chance to visit them except for an official visit. I don’t know if I need to see Miami before I commit. I have a great relationship with their coaches.”
Of a possible commitment, Gloster said “I hope to commit on my 17th birthday. It’s August 10th.”
If he does make a verbal commitment,...
