Glenn enjoyed spring visit

An offer didn't come for Giddings (Texas) junior running back Joseph Glenn on his trip to Lubbock for Texas Tech's spring game.

That's fine by him.

Glenn is one of those guys who takes his ball and goes him when things don't work out the way he wants them to, rather Glenn has arrived back home wanting to keep fighting for a Red Raider scholarship offer.

"They didn't offer me one, but I wasn't upset that they didn't offer me," Glenn said. "It's just making me work harder as a person and work harder for that offer. So no, they didn't offer me but I'm going to maintain my work ethic and become better so I can hopefully get that scholarship offer."

Just as Glenn said last week, he thinks a Tech offer is ultimately imminent.

Aside from not getting an offer, Glenn had a great time during his weekend in Lubbock. He got to tour the facilities and cited that family feel so many Class of 2013 prospects have said they felt while on campus.

"They're very -- I got there and got to shake all the coaches and players' hands and they made me feel like I fit in because they all talked to me. It was very good experience for me to go up there and talk to all those guys.

"At first I saw coach (Tommy) Tuberville, but I didn't get to speak to him. But the whole time I was up there coach Tommy Mainord showed me around the campus and the athletic buildings and the academic stuff. Then I got to talk to coach Tuberville and had a very good conversation with him. I think it's going to be a very good fit for me to go up there to Tech."

Glenn has an offer from Wake Forest and said Utah is also close to offering him, but confirmed Tech is his No. 1 school with a simple 'yes sir' when the question was asked directly.

Glenn said the 2013 prospects in attendance were informed that there are plans to build an indoor practice facility in the next few years and the Red Raiders also want to replace the Jones AT&T Stadium turf.

"I liked the practice field and they said something about replacing the turf on the football field with something like it. I think they also said they were going to do an indoor facility in a couple of years or so."

Glenn's weekend appears to have ended as a victory for both the running back and Tech. The Red Raiders appear to have a running back commit if they choose to go his route and Glenn returned to Giddings as motivated to perform as ever.

"My feeling about the spring game was that there are a lot of good things about Tech," Glenn said. "I wish to go back up there and visit again."
