After shining at Ohio State's Friday Night Lights earlier this summer, '15 ATH Eric Glover-Williams has pulled the trigger on becoming a Buckeye. The 4-star athlete has proven to be versatile enough to be able to play at wide receiver or cornerback, depending on what the Ohio State staff envisions for him. Glover-Williams was told by the coaching staff at Friday Night Lights that they wanted him to be the face of the class of '15, and Glover-Williams delivered it by committing today.

Glover-Williams is currently graded at a 94 and rated as a 4-star prospect by both 247Sports and the 247Composite. He is the 50th overall player in the country and the 7th best corner according to the 247Composite. Glover-Williams is also ranked as the second-best prospect out of the Buckeye state in 2015.

Holding offers from schools such as Arkansas, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pitt, Tennessee and West Virginia (along with a few others) the Buckeyes pick up Glover-Williams at the right time, before more top school come calling. During this past football season, Glover-Williams played in multiple roles, mostly at quarterback for Canton McKinley. Throwing 75/154 for 1,114 yards and 12 passing touchdowns in addition to his rushing attack, which he added 1,574 yards on 243 carries and 22 touchdowns.
