Drew Gloster , one of the top tight end prospects in the country, has narrowed his list to three schools. The 6-4, 220-pound Good Counsel (Wheaton, MD) product discusses which schools have made the cut as well as how he plans to go about making his final decision.
“I have set three official visits,” Gloster said. “I’m going to Virginia Tech, Georgia and Maryland in the first three weeks of December. I’ll probably make my decision off of that.”
Virginia Tech has been the favorite school for quite some time. Nothing appears to have changed in that regard.
“I’d still say Virginia Tech is my favorite,” Gloster said. “Virginia Tech has been my favorite for a while now. I’ve developed a good relationship with Coach Hite. I feel Virginia Tech is a good school for me. I could battle for reps as a true freshman.”
Still, Gloster feels the official visits will play a role in his final decision.
“The official visits are pretty big,” Gloster said. “All three of the schools are looking at me basically for the same position.”
He discussed all three finalists.
“Maryland likes me as a h-back,” Gloster said. “It’s a good position for me. The offense is a pro-style offense. I could be close to home. I could go home for a home cooked meal when I wanted to. My family could come watch all my games a lot easier.
“Virginia Tech is just 3 ½ hours away, so that’s still kind of close to home. Jeff King is graduating this year and I don’t know if they have anybody like that coming back. I know they have some good players on the roster, but I don’t know if they have anyone that could stretch the field like he does. I think I could make an impact early.
“Georgia has Leonard Pope and some other good players. Realistically, I would probably have to red-shirt. Red-shirting isn’t all bad, though, and I would be learning from one of the best players in the nation.”
Following the official visits, Gloster will sit down with his family and come up with a decision. What will be the most important issues?
“I’m looking for the school that fits me the best,” Gloster said. “I’m looking for the best situation football-wise and academically. I want to go somewhere with a good program in Architecture or Interior Design. I want to get along with the players and the coaching staff. When I graduate, I want to be able to get a good job.”
Will Hebron, a Georgia commitment, play a factor in Drew’s decision?
