Glenn visits Capstone

Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide are building one of the nation's best offensive line classes for 2008 with commitments from several of the best linemen in the country. Georgia offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound four star prospect, is another prospect the Tide has their eyes on and was in Tuscaloosa on Saturday for the Alabama-LSU game.

"I drove up Saturday morning with my dad and when we got there everyone was real excited and crazy. They were ready for a big game and I liked how the fans got up so much for the game. They were being the Alabama team and supported them the whole game," Glenn said. "It was a great game. Alabama gave it their all and although they might not have had the best players they played hard. That impressed me and it's what I'm looking for in a team. They put themselves in a good chance to win and just came up a little short. But the effort is there and so is the coaching."

After the game, Glenn spent some time talking with the Alabama coaching staff.

"It was a good visit to Alabama. I didn't learn anything new that I didn't know but I go to get a little more familiar with the school, atmosphere and that stuff. It was a great game and I had a good time," Glenn said. "I talked to Coach (Kirby) Smart afterward and he told me they had them but let them go. He's a nice guy. We didn't talk much about recruiting just the game,"

With offers from several major Southeastern programs, Glenn continues to be one of the most highly-recruited linemen in the 2008 class. The Crimson Tide remain in contention for Glenn as the nation's No. 19 offensive tackle closes in on his decision.

"I'm still looking at Alabama and Georgia the hardest. I wanted to commit early but now I just want to focus on my season and then get more serious about it," Glenn said. "There are others schools I'm looking at but those are the main two. Alabama and Georgia have made the biggest impression so far. But I'm not too worried about recruiting right now."
