Busy summer for Glass
ATLANTA - Nick Glass has been and will continue to be a busy traveler between now and the rest of the summer.
The 2014 safety and Georgia commit has already visited Alabama, Clemson, Georgia Tech and South Carolina, and Wednesday is supposed to check out Auburn before future summer trips take him to Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, North Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
Yes, the rising St. Pius junior is a traveling man, but insist his summer-long road trip is just to give himself a backup plan.
So don't worry, Bulldog fans.
"I'm 100 percent to Georgia," Glass said last weekend, where he attended the two-day Rivals Challenge at Lakewood Stadium. There's a reason the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder holds the Bulldogs in such esteem.
"I've been a Georgia fan all my life. I bleed red and black - that was it," Glass said. "It's close to home and my grandmother never missed a football game of mine and she will be able to make all of them."
But that's not all.
Glass credits Georgia coaches for being the biggest reason he intends to be a Bulldog.
That was also the message he tried to remind other athletes considering Georgia competing in last weekend's Challenge.
"Basically I just tell them to buy into the program, that we have the best coaching staff in the country and I believe they can get you to the next level, which is where you want to be," Glass said. "That's what I'm trying to convince them of."
Glass, who has received invitations to both the U.S. Army and Under Armor All-American Games, said he hopes to decide which contest he will play in by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, Glass said he will continue to push Georgia as much as he can, via Twitter, where like many Bulldog recruits, has already gained quite the following.
"It's kind of funny," he said. "I just take it as a blessing that I even get acknowledged like this. I just try to stay positive and don't say anything out of line. Just keep on promoting Georgia."
