The WVU coaching staff has made the linebacker position a priority in the 2016 recruiting class and continues to impress one of the nation’s best.
Joango Glackin has been on the WVU campus before, but his visit this past weekend left an impression that has the star linebacker closer to a decision. Glackin has long been a target of the coaching staff and they have continued their heavy pursuit after their offer last August.
Even though Glackin has visited the WVU campus twice previously, he walked away this time with a better impression of the football program. Glackin was being recruited by Shannon Dawson and when he left for Kentucky, there were some that felt it would hurt the Mountaineers chances at landing Glackin.
Any concerns he had were put to rest with this visit. He was introduced to the new members of the coaching staff and his new lead recruiters, Damon Cogdell and Tony Gibson. The 6’2″ 210 lb Glackin also got a first hand experience at his role in the Mountaineers 3-3-5 scheme by watching the Mountaineers practice.
Glackin will not just be hearing from the coaching staff during his recruitment to WVU. When the Mountaineers got a commitment from LB Zach Sandwich, another highly regarded linebacker from Ohio, he stated that he would be out on the recruiting trail for the 2016 class.
The relationship that Sandwich and Glackin have is noted, but it remains to be seen if their relationship will work in the Mountaineers favor.
