Mike Glennon knows about the recruiting process. He watched his brother, Sean, go through it in 2003/2004. And, like his brother, he will be able to play on the Division 1A level, as he already has an official offer from the University of Virginia.
“I think I do have an advantage in the recruiting process because of my brother,” Glennon said. Sean is currently the starting quarterback at Virginia Tech. “First of all, I’m familiar with a couple of schools already because those were the same schools he was looking at. Of course I’m familiar with Virginia Tech. I’ve been to Virginia a few times and Maryland is up there, too. Those are the main three I’m familiar with. I’ve also learned to go where I feel most comfortable and not let people sway me. I want to make the decision that’s best for me.”
This summer, the 6-6, 185-pound Westfield (Chantilly, VA) signal caller attended summer camps at Maryland, Notre Dame, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He felt he performed well at each place, especially at UVa.

Glennon has visited Virginia Tech on many occasions to support his brother and has been to UVa several times as well, including a trip last weekend for the Maryland game. His impression of both in-state programs is positive.
“Virginia has great academics, which is a bonus,” Glennon said. UVa did not offer Sean, but Mike says that is not a factor for him. “It is fairly close to home. It’s only about an hour and forty minutes from home. They have a great offense for me and I really enjoy the coaches. Their coaches seem like really kind people who care about their players.
“My brother is at Virginia Tech and I’d love to be at school with him. My sister is there, too, and it would be cool for all of us to be together. I go to pretty much all of the games. I feel most comfortable there having family there and knowing what it’s like to go there from being there so much.”
In his first year as a full-time starter for Westfield, Glennon, who did see action last season as a sophomore, is coming along well. He has completed 63 of 104 passes for 866 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has thrown...
