4-star tight end recruit Drew Gloster, who received over 20 Division 1A scholarship offers, is ready and anxious for his recruitment to come to a conclusion. The 6-4, 220-pound Good Counsel (Wheaton, MD) star has set December official visits to each of his two finalists and will make a decision following those two trips.

“My plan is to take an official visit to Virginia Tech and an official visit to Maryland,” Gloster said. “Then I’ll just see where I fit in the best. Wherever I feel the most comfortable, where I can get the best education and the place I know I can play early and be an impact player, that’s where I’ll go.”

Virginia Tech has had the edge in Gloster’s recruitment for a long time. Is that still the case?

“Virginia Tech’s still my favorite, but the more and more I think about the situation at Maryland the more I consider Maryland,” Gloster said. “I’ve always liked Virginia Tech. Coach Beamer’s a great coach. They have my majors, like Architecture and Design. Right now, it would be a good place to be. As a freshman, I think I could play early because Jeff King is leaving and they’re looking for someone to come in and compete for playing time.

“Maryland is right down the road, so the people who supported me growing up and who support me now could easily see my games. Vernon Davis is probably going to enter the NFL Draft, so they’re looking for an H-back. I could go in and maybe hope to start. If not, I would get a lot of playing time. Coach Friedgen is a great coach, too.

“It all depends on my official visits.”

Gloster has set his official visit to Virginia Tech for December 6th and currently has his official visit to Maryland scheduled for the weekend of December 16th. His visit to Virginia Tech may only be a one day official and it’s during the week…is that a concern for Virginia Tech?

“Coach Hite was a little worried about it being during the week, but it’s not a big deal,” Gloster said. “I know Virginia Tech is very good, socially. That’s not really a concern of mine.”

Good Counsel finished its season at 8-4, which included another appearance in the WCAC Championship game. There, Good Counsel lost a heartbreaker to DeMatha, 21-20. Despite the loss, Gloster felt great about his senior season.

“I think it was a great season,” Gloster said. He had 33 catches
