Webb, Glover-Williams put on a show

By Brad Bournival

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Damon Webb (Detroit/Cass Tech) is the face of Ohio State’s 2014 recruiting class so far.

Eric Glover-Williams (Canton, Ohio/McKinley) has been told by the Buckeyes they want him to be the face of 2015.

Fans got a glimpse of what Ohio State practices could be like when the two went head to head during the individual sessions at Ohio State's Friday Night Lights.

If there was an admission charge, it would have been worth it. That the show came free made the matchup the highlight of the evening in The Horseshoe.

“It was a whole bunch of excitement and a humbling experience, knowing about the great players that played inside there,” Webb said. “It definitely made me better, knowing I went against probably one of the best wide receivers in the country coming up. Going back to Detroit makes me feel like I did well against the top competition, so I should dominate the competition again.”

Glover-Williams, who is being looked at as a slot receiver for Ohio State, did get in a catch or two against Webb, the 57th-ranked player in the nation for 2014. But  for the most part Webb was the shutdown defensive back he is billed to be. The eighth-ranked corner in the nation even threw in a few interceptions for good measure.

“He’s a great player, a great corner,” Glover-Williams said. “We went at it. Every time I was up, I told him to go against me. We just battled. We did what we had to do and went out there and competed.”

Both had high praise for each other as the oohs and aahs in Ohio Stadium were evident every time the two lined up across from each other. While Glover-Williams will once again suit up at quarterback for McKinley this season, his upside in the slot is unquestioned.

“He’s going be a great receiver,” Webb said. “He’s quick and runs great routes. It would be nice to see him as a Buckeye.”

They could be doing it for Ohio State fans in the future, and that had many fans in attendance talking about what could be.
