Graham Glasgow is Not A Buckeye

Update 7/24/11: Glasgow has apparently decided to walk-on at Michigan and is currently listed on their roster. There has been absolutely no reporting of this anywhere and the only proof is the roster listing.This development puts him right up their with Kyle Kalis as one of the stranger developments in recruiting over the past decade.

Today, 6 ft 7 inch, 305 pound Graham Glasgow from DeKalb IL accepted an offer to be a “preferred walk on” at Ohio State starting in the fall of 2011.

As a member of Illinois state finalist Marmion Academy in Aurora Illinois (yeah, that one), Glasgow also earned All State honors at left tackle. He was a late recruiting target, and had interest from Michigan and Michigan State. Graham’s parents also work with the athletic medicine program at Northern Illinois University, which explains former NIU and current Minnesota coach Jerry Kill’s interest in Glasgow in a preferred walk on roll as well.

Interestingly enough, it was his coach who encouraged the Buckeyes to evaluate him. What makes that intriguing is that his coach is a former offensive lineman at the University of Michigan and with the Chicago Bears.

As a “preferred walk-on”, he would not be on athletic scholarship at the beginning of his career, but would be amongst the first considered should a scholarship become available.
