Urban Meyer has a lot to smile about lately. Meyer received more good news Sunday night, when Eric Glover-Williams (Canton McKinley) pledged to the Buckeyes, becoming the first Ohio State oral commit for the class of 2015 in the process. Glover-Williams was a focus for the Ohio State staff; they told him that they wanted him to be the face of the program for the 2015 class. Glover-Williams comes from a long line of Buckeyes and that his father knows other Canton McKinley alumni that played for Ohio State, including former NFL safety Mike Doss. Eric’s father, Jerry, was pleased with the fit:
“Everything felt right when we went down there. He talked to the coaches and saw the education there and everything seemed to fit. He got the full picture of Ohio State, not just from the coaches but from former players and current players.”
Glover-Williams is listed as an athlete and measures at 5-foot-9, 160 pounds. At Canton McKinley, Glover-Williams has played quarterback, wide receiver, and cornerback. He has huge potential to be a big fan favorite due to his great talent… but also his nickname: Superman. While under that lights at OSU’s “Friday Night Lights” camp, Glover-Williams went through drills with a red Superman “S” displayed on his T-shirt. Glover-Williams explained, “When I wear the ‘S’ on my chest, I’ve got to show you how it’s really done when I go out there. I like being competitive. I’m really competitive.” Superman will have to wait two years before making an impact with the Buckeyes, but Urban Meyer has found himself a solid player to lead his 2015 recruiting class.
