Eric Glover-Williams is No. 1 for 2015

Eric Glover-Williams, Ohio's top junior, committed to Urban Meyer and Ohio State Sunday.

Ohio's top junior, Eric Glover-Williams, has committed to Ohio State today, per a number of viable sources. This is the Buckeyes first commitment in the 2015 class. 

The eric glover-williams File

  • Size: 5-11/165
  • Position: ATH
  • Class: 2015
  • School: Canton McKinley (Canton, Ohio)
  • Composite Rating: 4-star
  • 247Sports Rank: 4-star
  • Scout Rank: 4-star
  • ESPN Rank: 4-star
  • Rivals Rank: NR

Glover-Williams has long been considered an Ohio State lean since being offered by the Buckeyes. Ohio State beats out Arkansas, Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and West Virginia for his commitment. 

At Ohio State's Friday Night Lights in July, Glover-Williams stood out with his play – and his Superman shirt – at wide receiver and cornerback. Of note were several battles he engaged in with fellow future Buck and class of 2014 cornerback Damon Webb of Detroit's Cass Tech. Following the event, the Canton McKinley product told Eleven Warriors that Urban Meyer said he wants him to be the face of the 2015 recruiting class. 

Although he played quarterback last season (as seen below), he is expected to be a wide receiver/hybrid at the college level. 

Birm's Take

The commitment of Glover-Williams means that the Buckeyes won't be waiting long into the summer or the fall to nab their main offensive target in 2015, as they had to in 2013 and 2014 with Dontre Wilson and Curtis Samuel, respectively. Glover-Williams is electric with the ball in his hands and provides a legitimate homerun threat each and every time he touches the ball, whether in the backfield or lined up the slot or even out wide. While he's physically "smaller" than you might like in the Big Ten, Glover-Williams is physical off the line and has an excellent ability to find the ball at its high-point as a receiver. 

An enormous talent with an enormous amount of confidence, Glover-Williams excels in many of the game's non-physical areas. He's got intangibles that can't be taught and and exudes confidence in everything he does, and there's no doubt that he may rub some people the wrong way because of his confidence, which could be perceived as arrogance.  

The bottom line with Eric Glover-Williams is that if he wanted to play cornerback, he's got All-American potential at cornerback, if he wants to play wide receiver, he could be an All-American at wide receiver. With two full years of high school football ahead of him, Glover-Williams will get plenty of time to refine his skills at wide receiver, making sure that he's polished entering Ohio State in the summer of 2015.

What an incredible start to the 2015 class. EGW is a great athlete, and I'm really glad that we got him so early in the process to set the tone. Welcome Superman!

A huge great start for another stellar class. Glad he does not have to 2nd guess himself and will take a leadership role for this class. I see the turning of the tide ( pun intended).

Sick speed, such a good time to be a Buckeye.

wolfman's picture

So he is projected to play offense, rather than cornerback?

BuckeyeAsylum's picture

Dontre Wilson, listed as a RB I believe? But there was never a defensive consideration for him.

wolfman's picture

Sorry, it was a question referring to the previous post.  I was curious if Eric Glover-Williams was projected as an offensive player or cornerback?

BuckeyeAsylum's picture

Ah sorry, I thought it was a reply to the one above, but clearly wasn't. The formatting here tricks me sometimes. I'd imagine that as we have recruited well for DB that they'd probably want to try and use him on offense more, but that is just my opinion.

Oldschoolbuck's picture

Kid has a hose, too. At least from that highlight tape, EGW was making some really good throws.
I imagine Urban & Tom Herman will be dreaming up some interesting plays with him having the option to either run or throw.

Reminds me of Braxton a bit (not that he'll be a QB just in terms in running style). Great vision, elite elusiveness and the strength to stay on his feet when the guys he makes miss get an arm on him. I'm curious about his top end speed.

I, like many of you (including 11w staff) thought this would happen soon after the Samuel commit...I had thought EGW wanted to commit earlier but the staff may have said to chill for a minute while samuel makes his decision...top ATH can become legends at OSU and EGW will be next in line with Dontre, Jalin, and Samuel... Harvins, Harvins everywhere.

Yup Damien Harris will be a superstar.  But this isn't just about OSU 2015 recruit its all the playmakers we bringing with every class.

skid21's picture

Why do you want to make everything about ttum? Contrary to your belief everything about OSU isn't measured against ttun. And thankfully because you guys haven't been much of anything to compare against for awhile.

MrCarson's picture

I could ask the same question of you guys.  I have only responded to comments directly mentioning Michigan.

skid21's picture

You do realize where you are right? In this thread you have to be looking for a reference to scUM if you want a reason to post crap. You did that. After criticizing an OSU fan for posting about things late yesterday. Yet, here you are yesterday and today. No real life for you? You can't even take advantage of the opportunity a more than tolerant community gave you.

NCBuck1's picture

The post you are responding to did not directly mention SCUM. He was addressing the entire Big Ten. And just in case you are missing something here, everything on this site has something to do with The Ohio State University and not TTUN.

Edit: I got your back Skid!

DannyBeane's picture

I was referencing the B1G as a whole and frankly my dear, I don't give a damn... for the whole state of Michigan.

original buckeye's picture

And before any Michigan fans go all "we didn't offer him," everyone should rest assured that although the fat clown isn't that bright, he knew he had no chance at Glover-Williams, and hence didn't even bother offering. 

MrCarson's picture

Do you have any evidence for this claim?  Can Michigan fans say the same thing about Meyer and Crawford?

pcuzz1's picture

Crawford does not fit the mold of corners tOSU pursues. Too short,  great player don't get me wrong, but if you look at  eli apple, burrows, gareon conley, they are all 6'2 or taller(correct me if I'm wrong) and crawford is only listed at 5'9

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

I'm not denying that Crawford doesn't fit the OSU mold, though as a HS junior, it's certainly possible that he will grow 1-2 inches more.  All I'm saying is that nobody here knows why Hoke didn't offer this kid.
Also, only Conley is listed as 6'2.

buckz4evr's picture

Please go back to mogoblue or where ever you came from.  Can't we at least enjoy our first 2015 recruit without you chiming in?  Take a lesson from Mman and Hail and learn when to open our mouth and when to keep it shut. 

MrCarson's picture

I'm not preventing you from enjoying it at all.  It's a great pick up.  I also haven't opened my mouth this entire time.

skid21's picture

So are you saying ttum wouldn't have taken him? LMAO

MrCarson's picture

Apparently not, considering they didn't offer.

skid21's picture

So you are obviously as ignorant as you appear. I have no idea why so many posters came to your rescue when you are obviously a scUM poster who just posts crap. If you don't think scUM wouldn't welcome this guy with more than open arms then your opinion means nothing. They'd take him in a heartbeat and I'm sure that sucks for you.

MrCarson's picture

Right.  So Hoke would of course take this kid, but Meyer would definitely not take a top 100 player who is currently the #3 junior in Ohio.  Sorry, but I'm not buying it.

pcuzz1's picture

You don't always take a player for his ranking(looking at you Mack Brown). Now with that said, I am not saying urbz wouldnt take crawford, but Look at our depth at the position, as well as some of the other guys at cb we are in for. 

pat cozzens

skid21's picture

Sorry, but I'm not buying it.

Of course you aren't because it would suck for you. Don't compare EGW to your commit from Ohio. You'd look even more ignorant.

MrCarson's picture

How exactly does it suck for me?  Hoke already had two players in the top 30 for 2015 and three in the top 100.

pcuzz1's picture

Because that class Like every other one still will not finish in the top 5, like tosu. What do you not understand. Scum does this every yr. Starts fast and finishes very slow

I was reading all of your negative comments on our celebration thread while giving my 7 week-old daughter her final feeding of the night (hopefully). Then she literally just spit it up all over me. I think she may be able to read!  Thanks for that sir. I blame you!

FROMTHE18's picture

Fact is OSU doesnt want small DBs. Crawford is one. EGW can play anywhere while I think Crawford is exclusively a CB. I think any team in the nation would love a short, shifty playmaker on offense, regardless of the style of offense, that player can be used to put up points. Generally, DB's the size of Crawford wont be getting offers from OSU or teams that like taller corners while offensive ATHs can really be any size and teams will take them if they are good enough.

If we can keep a hot streak going with our 2015 class, no way scum gets their ever so cherished may recruiting championship!

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

I've heard this "May recruiting championship" thing several times, and I have to say I really don't get it.  Is it supposed to be a criticism of the fact that Hoke recruits players early?  It would be one thing if they start fast and then finish poorly, but their recruiting has been on an extremely high level right up to signing day.  Last year was top ten, this year will be top ten, and 2015 will almost certainly be top ten given the tremendous start.  What exactly is the insult supposed to mean?

AeroBuckeye2001's picture

Sorry, I only have an Aerospace Engineering degree from Ohio State. But my feeble mind was going for association of mythical awards, hence the "kind of like this." In other words, May Recruiting Championship is similar to the September Heisman award.

MrCarson's picture

Right but you still didn't explain exactly how it's supposed to be a criticism or insult.  Is getting recruits early a bad thing?  Are you suggesting that Michigan fans incorrectly assume that due to early commits, they will eventually finish #1 in the rankings?  If so, do you have any evidence for this?

pcuzz1's picture

sorry my phone, cut off my last comment. But again, I just get annoyed bc my one scum friend as well as stuff I see online portrays them as being very obvious about it. my buddy acts like they won a natl champ, every may when scum has a top rated class. usually by ESPN, so take the FWIW

pat cozzens

pcuzz1's picture

Exactly! In may you guys usually have a top two or three class, just cant finish as strong as tOSU and others, which is why you guys get passed up as signing day approaches. I am not taking away from the relatively strong start scum has. I am not up to par wity scum recruiting, obviously I know you lead for hand. However, this year is shaping up to be like the last few years. Urbz and co. Are in very good position with lattimore, mcmillan, smith, prince, mavety, and an outside shot at some others

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

So you're ripping Michigan for getting recruits early because they don't eventually finish #1 in the country?

AeroBuckeye2001's picture

No, we rip Michigan because they are Michigan.

The Ohio State University Class of 2001
BS Aero & Astronautical Engineering

pcuzz1's picture

Not at all, I said I am not taking away from their strong starts. Maybe they pick a handful of "elite" guys early in the process to go after hard which results in them starting strong. The negative side of that would be that as the process goes on they are not in with many big name players, which results in a slow, or average at best finish in recruiting

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

Average FINISH maybe, but that's been the strategy, and it's worked better than any Michigan coach since rankings began.  

pcuzz1's picture

I mean yeah, I am sure it has. I would just much rather plant the seed early and end with a bang as well as a top three class, opposed to starting with a bang and ending with a top 10 class.

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

Ok well Michigan was #2 on scout, so they were a little more than top ten.

pcuzz1's picture

and tOSU was number one, I know that is not what this about, but I like adding that in there. but take a composite without including ESPN, because they are awful! Bottom liine is, scum if at best will finish 5th in the ranking. and like it has been stated in this blog getting the commits is great, but what takes it to an amazing level is the ability the coaches have to develop these players, and I like tOSU's chances with all of these sub 4.4 guys we are binging in

pat cozzens

MrCarson's picture

OSU may develop players better.  That remains to be seen.  But I do think it's pretty silly for people to bash Michigan "May recruiting championships" when they have been recruiting at an unprecedented level the last two years.   

fear_the_nut70's picture

Why is this so confusing for you?  Every year Hoke gets a jump on OSU in recruiting.  TSUN fans I run into wont shut up about it.  In the two years UFM has been running the program, he has eclipsed Hoke's classes in the composite rankings.  Thus the May recruiting championship comments.  Do you really not get it or are you just being intentionally obtuse?

FROMTHE18's picture

Michigan has been horrible at developing elite DB prospects. Michigan's secondary has been garbage for a long time. 

hit_the_couch's picture

It's not completely true. They did have Ty Law, Woodson, Leon Hall, and Stevie Brown.
 
I'm sure there are others but these are the only ones I can think of right now.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Let's face it - anything and everything is a competition between these two schools and fans of both hate to lose at anything to their rivals.  There is not a person among us that doesn't get a smile when their respective school wins at anything and recruiting is a great example of that! 
Flounder is a good recruiter and he is acquiring talent at a good clip but what he hasn't proven yet is that he is a capable coach that can take advantage of his talent!  He has been a .500 coach his entire career and it will be interesting to watch if he can actually get to a higher level of winning or if he becomes the next Charlie Weis!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

Crimson's picture

UM finished below tOSU.

AndyVance's picture

The "May Recruiting Championship" dig is very simple:

  1. Coach Hoke recruits well (as a self-respecting, die-hard Buckeye and huge fan of The Greatest Rivalry in Sports can admit that);
  2. M*ch*g*n fans declare a ticker-tape parade for winning The Mythical Recruiting Championship;
  3. Football commences in the fall; and,
  4. M*ch*g*n finishes second in the Legends Division.

In other words, winning The Mythical Recruiting Championship doesn't matter a whole helluva lot if you can't win more than six games in the conference schedule. That is all.
As a side note, I think the "insult" stems from some of us "old timers" who still remember the days when recruiting was something we didn't follow 24/7 on the interwebz and stuff. A lot of fanbases, not just those of That Team Up North, get waaaay too wrapped up in recruiting "victories" and lose site of the fact that the best recruits in the world don't matter much if you don't translate that talent into victories on the field.

MrCarson's picture

Andy can you point me to where Michigan fans declare any kind of recruiting championship?  Thanks. 

Crimson's picture


Seriously, if you want to spend another 24 hours on this site, you should be respectful like the other Michigan fans.

MrCarson's picture

I'm being perfectly respectful.  I'm asking very simple questions and encouraging people to provide facts for their arguments.  That's it.  I haven't provided any incendiary remarks.

Turned out to be a good call Odeez! Kid is a stud! I'm glad Urban accepted his commitment so early and we didn't have to wait till 2014 NLOI day, after the current class was finished. Great start for 2015!!!

Wow, the (not a real) word that comes to mind for this kid is escapability.  His best chance to be a future NFL player at his size obviously is as a corner, although he might grow a couple of inches and add a few pound, he is only a junior in high school.  Confidence is great ... arrogance is not, so hope he is a good kid and student and super confident but not an ego maniac.  Impressive video, lightning in a bottle.

No better way to start my week. Great talent, great kid. We could not possibly have started our 2015 class any better. Welcome to the family, Eric! Can't wait to see you fly after the crystal ball!

So, I'm pretty sure Mr. Carson is about to beat the record for the most downvotes ever.

His current helmet sticker total is -209...
That's impressive....

Not quite the most ever but he tried. I believe one guy wound up with close to -500 helmet stickers in a matter of hours after he got to over 100 helmet stickers in like an hour and was bragging about it. He went on a huge rant and boom, he was no more. I tried to look for it, but I can't remember his name and I have no idea what thread it was in...but it was a rather epic meltdown if I say so myself.
