Troy Gloster to WVU

Troy Gloster (Olney, Md.) has committed to the West Virginia Mountaineers. Gloster had a final two of WVU and Michigan, but he felt very comfortable with the Mountaineers.

"They were one of the first schools to offer me and I always felt like I liked them, but the biggest factor was my relationship with coach Casteel. I just felt very comfortable with him," he said. "That was definitely one of the biggest reasons."

Gloster is a three star  linebacker, but probably the one we had the best chance of getting, don't hold your breath for Khairi Fortt!


  1. I'm confused by your statement that Golster was the LB we had the best chance of getting. He never visited Michigan but made multiple trips to WVU. I realize that Fortt is a long longshot, but don't we still have some good prospects on our list? What about Aramide Olaniyan, Josh Furman, or Marquis Flowers, weren't we looking at any of them as LBs?

    Thanks I really enjoy your blog

  2. Josh Furman and Marquis Flowers are both listed as Safeties on, which is where I source my ratings from. However it is likely that they would adopt the spinner position if they came to UM. I did actually forget about Olaniyan, he is an OLB that Michigan is probably in the lead for right now, although his decision won't come for a while. Gloster is a middle linebacker, so I should have put "best MLB" we had a chance of getting as he had UM in his final two schools. Thanks for the feedback, its always welcome!
