Last fall, T.J. Glover was among the area’s most versatile football players.

Not only did the Plant senior rush for nearly 1,000 yards at 10.91 yards per clip, but he caught  21 passes for 348 yards and six TDs for the Class 5A state champs.

Not bad for a player, who according to Panthers coach Robert Weiner, “didn’t play at all as a junior.”

With one solid season, Glover apparently did enough to impress college coaches.

And lots of them.

As of Monday, the 5-foot-9, 170-pounder had offers from Division I-AA programs Delaware, Georgia Southern and Towson. And, he also is drawing interest from the likes of Michigan, North Carolina and Wake Forest, Weiner said.

“He has a lot of possibilities,” Weiner said.

Weiner described the interest from Michigan and North Carolina as strong.

According to the coach, Glover likely will play WR in college.

“He’ll probably be a slot receiver,” Weiner said. “Kind of like how we used him.”
