#STRecruiting: RB Jaylon Glover reviews official visit with #Gamecocks

Jaylon Glover

The top running back prospect for USC in the 2022 recruiting class, Jaylon Glover (5-9 195) of Lakeland, FL, was in for his official visit over the weekend. Glover rushed for 1588 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, after a sophomore season of 1592 and 14 touchdowns. He’s rated a three-star prospect and ranked the #34 RB nationally and the #58 prospect in Florida.

Glover also has offers from Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Utah, Iowa, Iowa State, Miami, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Florida State and Nebraska.

After wrapping up his official visit to USC Sunday afternoon, Glover offered this review:

“Everything was great.  The staff, all the events we went to, the players and the recruits that were with us, I had fun.  It was a great time in Columbia, and I can’t wait to come back.  We’re going to find out.  They were talking about week one (of the season), but I might come back before then.”

On his meeting with running backs coach Montario Hardesty:

“Coach Hardesty was preaching the same thing that he’s always said to me, that I’m their number one back on their board.  He’s always telling me that. They would love to have me there.  They offer so much in their offense.  They don’t care about grade.  They don’t do favoritism.  Whoever is the best guy, they are going to touch the rock.  He’s always telling me that.  He keeps it real.  It’s the relationship he’s built with me.  Coach Hardesty is my guy.”

On where USC stands with him after the official visits:

“USC has always been high for me.  Even when coach (Des) Kitchings was there.  Coach Beamer called me when he was at Oklahoma (after taking the USC job) and that really meant a lot.  That left an impression on me and my parents as well.  That was big.”

Glover will visit Georgia Tech next weekend followed by Florida State and Utah. He would like to make his decision in July.
