FSU 4-star RB target Jaylon Glover clears air about leaders, decision plans
The recruiting process is winding down for four-star running back Jaylon Glover, who has taken all five of his official visits and only has one or two unofficial visits remaining before he makes his college decision in August.
Glover sat down with Warchant.com to talk more about his much-anticipated decision and to answer several very important questions.
Is Florida out in front now that the Gators have turned up the heat? Where does FSU stand in his recruitment? How important is his longstanding relationship with Seminoles running backs coach David Johnson? And what are the key factors in his decision?
With his planned commitment date fast approaching, Glover has clearly put a lot of time and research into his decision.
The Lake Gibson standout took official visits to FSU, Georgia Tech, Utah, Tennessee and South Carolina. He also took an unofficial visit this spring to Florida, which has turned up the heat in recent weeks.
Glover says he will take another unofficial visit to Gainesville in July, and there's a possibility he will check out the 'Noles once again. But no date has been set up for that trip.
For most of Glover's recruitment, Florida State has had the momentum and been seen as the solid favorite. Things seemed to change, however, when the Gators extended an offer and picked up their pursuit.
Since that time, several recruiting analysts on various networks have made predictions that UF will be Glover's choice. But the four-star running back made it clear that he has not decided on the Gators.
"Yeah, I didn't know anything about the 'forecasts' or 'crystal balls,' but someone showed me those picks," Glover said. "Things have picked up with Florida and Coach Knox (UF running backs coach Greg Knox) over there. But to say that's the team in my head or where I'm leaning, no, I don't think that's true. I'm still figuring things out right now."
Glover did confirm that his commitment announcement likely will take place on Aug. 6.
