Ohio State received its first verbal commitment for the class of 2015 when Eric Glover-Williams pledged his allegiance to head coach Urban Meyer and Buckeye Nation, Sunday night.
Glover-Wlliams, nicknamed “Superman,” is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound athlete/running back/wide receiver/cornerback/tuba player/hot dog vendor from McKinley High School in Canton, Ohio, who currently receives a four-star rating by Scout.com and 247Sports.com. Scout lists Glover-Williams as the ninth-best running back prospect in the nation, and 247Sports tabs him at No. 10 among cornerbacks in the country.
As a sophomore at McKinley, Glover-Williams threw for 1,114 yards while completing 48.7 percent (75-154) of his passes with 12 touchdowns. He also had 1,810 yards rushing on 243 carries and 22 more scores.
At Ohio State, though, Glover-Williams will likely play receiver from the slot position.
Along with Ohio State, Glover-Williams also had offers from Arkansas, Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and West Virginia.
“I picked Ohio State because I see it kind of like how I see Canton McKinley and Massillon in high school,” Glover-Williams said to ESPN. “Going to college and playing for Ohio State — Michigan is one of the biggest rivalries in the nation. I just wanted to be a part of that. When I left there, I felt like I was at home, so it was easy. It was Ohio State over everybody.”
