SIGNING DAY – Junior Solice Talks Rutgers; Ka'Lial Glaud a 'Huge' Get
Click above for our latest Signing Day interview with Hackensack (NJ) middle linebacker Junior Solice, who decommitted from Rhode Island to choose Rutgers.
KA’LIAL GLAUD A ‘HUGE’ GETJust got off the phone with recruiting analyst Chris Melvin and he couldn’t stop raving aboutKa’Lial Glaud, a 6-2, 217-pound outside linebacker from Atco (NJ) Winslow Township who committed to Rutgers Wednesday after literally flipping a coin at his press conference to decide between Rutgers and West Virginia.
“That’s huge,” Melvin said. “You had Penn State, West Virginia knocking on his door. Everybody wanted that kid. He’s 6-2 ½, 220 pounds of solid muscle. He won the linebacker MVP at the Big Time Football Showcase. Nobody gets on the outside of the kid.
“He brings a tenaciousness, speed, confidence, athleticism at the outside LB position. He’s a leader out there on the field. He’s a disciplined ballplayer. He slides up on the ball well. He covers well. He’ll be able to cover the tight end because he’s so athletic. That’s a phenomenal get right there.”
