Glenn made the decision to commit to FSU on Friday evening, following his time in Tallahassee and a conversation with his parents.
He spoke with head coach Willie Taggart on Saturday and went public with his commitment on Sunday.
When Glenn visited FSU on Friday, he was accompanied by his parents, as well as a teammate, junior three-star strong-side defensive end Will Anderson.
The visit allowed Glenn, who was offered by the Seminoles on Dec. 9th, to learn more about the University as well as the coaching staff.
“I think it went really great,” Glenn said after the visit. “I definitely loved what I saw.”
One thing above all made it clear to him that Tallahassee was his future home.
“The family-type feel,” Glenn said.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker shared more about what he learned on the visit.
“Due to the bad weather, I didn’t get to tour the actual campus,” Glenn said. “But I saw the football facilities and academics.
“Seeing the winning history at FSU stood out the most, a standard to play to,” Glenn continued. “The academics was great to see; the positive direction they are moving in under [head] Coach [Willie] Taggart and how GPAs are getting higher.”
The visit also provided Glenn and his family an opportunity to sit down with the coaching staff, who has returned to town to host a big official visit weekend.
“I talked to the entire defensive staff, as well as Coach Taggart for a while,” Glenn said. “They think I’m a smart and aggressive linebacker. The type of player they need to come contribute early.”
FSU would still like to add at least one more linebacker in their 2019 class.
The 247Sports.com Composite Rankings consider Glenn the No. 38 inside linebacker in the nation.
