"It's Big-Time Football"
"When I got the offer, I was very excited," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I started thinking about all the tradition that Michigan has, and everything else. I've been offered by Boston College, West Virginia, Stanford, Iowa, Michigan State, Syracuse, Louisville, and North Carolina. When I got the offer from Michigan, I felt like it was my biggest offer so far."
The talented youngster seems pretty knowledgeable, as he reflected upon what Michigan could offer him athletically.
"They have been a powerhouse program since college football started. It's big-time football, and like I said before, I feel like it's my biggest offer so far. Michigan is the total package."
Although Gloster speaks high of the Wolverines, he plans on visiting a few schools for an up close and personal look.
"I'm going to visit Stanford, West Virginia, and Michigan this summer. I'm not sure of the date of my Michigan visit, but I'll be talking to the coaches about a good time to stop by."
Once those trips are completed, all schools will be evaluated, with a commitment to follow.
"I'm a leader, so I want to make an early decision, and get it out of the way. I want to focus on my season."
Gloster will base his decision off of three major factors.
"First is the academics. You have to be prepared for life after football, so you need a solid degree. I have a 3.3 GPA, and I plan to major in business. It's because my parents have always told me that I can't play anything if my academics aren't in order."
"I also have to be comfortable in my environment, and with the coaching staff."
"Then of course I want the opportunity to play, hopefully it's early playing time. I'm going to work hard for it."
One possible scenario that could trump all other schools is the chance to play with his older brother, Drew Gloster. Drew is a red shirt junior at nearby Maryland. If Troy were to choose Maryland, the two could play together for one year. The opportunity has definitely been discussed.
"We have talked about it, how it would be great for me to play with my brother at Maryland. Me and Drew talked about," but, Trey added, they also realized, "that I have to find the best fit for me.
Troy Gloster describes himself as a hard worker that plays to the whistle. He tries to get to the ball on every play … and college coaches say the 6-0, 215 pounder with the 4.6 second 40 has a great motor.
