2014 DB Nick Glass ponders future at UGA

8/10/2012

Nick Glass (Atlanta/St. Pius X) has been committed to the University of Georgia since April.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound safety, once strong in his convictions to be a Bulldog, now appears to have had some questions surface. Playing time, and how he fits into the depth chart, are foremost in his mind.

"It has been good," Glass said of his commitment to Georgia. "I have been talking to them about the safety spot. They have about four or five safeties and that is making me a little itchy and I am just trying to see what is going to happen with them before I make a decision."

His pledge to the Bulldogs never really stopped others from staying actively in the picture. Some of the prominent regional schools as well as national powers have been sure to let Glass know that they are interested.

"A couple of teams have still been talking to me like Florida, Clemson, Tennessee, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Southern Cal, schools like that," he said.

Glass recently accepted a bid to play in the Georgia Junior Bowl, the game that culminates the weeklong Rising Seniors event that showcases top prospects in the Peach State every December in Atlanta.

Having seen the event live and in color before, the 2014 defensive back knows all about it. So when his invitation to participate came he was obviously happy to hear it.

"I was ecstatic," he said. "I went to the game last year and I had lot of friends that were in it. Basically, it was a lot of the top guys in the state -- and in the country, really. It seemed like it was going to be a real big game in the next few years. Last year, it jumped and really took off ever since."

Having mentioned close friends such as DeShaun Watson (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville) and Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County) as being a part of the game, Glass has added incentive to play alongside top prospects he normally wouldn't be able to.

Playing against the other team has it's benefits too, though. With the best of the best going against each other, Glass is relishing the opportunity to see how he stacks up.

"I think Georgia is one of the best states for football," he said. "So if you are going against some of the best players in the state, you are probably going against the best players in the country. I will be playing against most of these guys in college, so I do think it is good competition."
