After more than doubling his scholarship offer total in the month of May, there is no doubt that 6-6, 195-pound quarterback Mike Glennon has had one impressive Evaluation period. I caught up with Westfield’s (Chantilly, VA) star junior to discuss his recent offers, his summer plans and his decision-making process.

Heading into May, Glennon boasted offers from Duke, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech. This month alone, he has added written offers from Florida State, Illinois, Miami, Purdue and Rutgers. Today, he will speak with Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr and he will receive an offer from the Wolverines (Carr likes to give offers over the phone, but Glennon already knows one is coming).

“It’s pretty exciting to have all of these big time schools offer you,” Glennon said. “Also, there are a lot of up-and-coming programs. Purdue and Rutgers were better than Florida State last year. Just because Florida State is a big time program doesn’t mean anything because other schools are up there talent-wise.”

In addition to the schools that have offered, Glennon is also receiving heavy interest from Boston College, LSU and N.C. State, among others. Head coaches have been by Westfield High School. Specifically, UVa’s Al Groh, Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer, Rutgers’ Greg Schiano and Duke’s Ted Roof visited.

“It shows how interested they really are,” Glennon said. “Not many kids get head coaches to come by their school, but I really want to learn more about each school in general.”

Glennon will learn more about quite a few schools in the next month. He begins this weekend with trips to Florida State and Miami. He also plans to camp at N.C. State, hopes to visit UVa again for the June 16th Elite Junior day and he will head to the Midwest to visit schools such as Michigan and Purdue at the end of June.

Glennon does not have a timetable on a decision, but he will likely narrow his list throughout the next few months.

“I think I could start narrowing down my schools in the summer,” Glennon said. “I still want to go by whenever I’m comfortable. My decision could be in the summer, but realistically it probably will be late September or early October. That way, I could take two or three official visits.”
