J.C. tackle likes visit, now planning next move

West Virginia is looking for some immediate help along the offensive line and a junior college product from Lackawanna C.C. (Scranton, Pa.) was impressed by his visit to Morgantown this weekend.

Mark Glowinski, 6-foot-5, 290-pounds, was hosted by Pat Eger on the trip and liked everything he saw while in Morgantown.

"I liked everything really well. I got a tour around yesterday and saw the facilities and all the different types of buildings," he said. "I liked everything. I felt comfortable, now I just have to think about it and decide soon."

Glowinski, a Junior College All-American, had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Offensive Line Coach Bill Bedenbaugh and got a real feel for what the coaching staff plans for the talented tackle.

"He showed me film and the stuff they ran. It was a better understanding of what's going on and what the calls are and the stuff they do," he said. "It's not hard to run stuff like that and I think I would fit in."

The Mountaineers are hoping that Glowinski could come in and compete for immediate playing time at the left tackle spot after the departure of senior Don Barclay.

"That's something I'm looking for," he said.

Glowinski didn't spend too much time with Head Coach Dana Holgorsen, but the head man is expected to pay a visit Glowinski later on this week.

The visit only improved the Mountaineers chances of securing Glowinski's signature, and he will sit down this week and decide if he wants to take additional visits to South Florida and East Carolina, or make a college decision.

He plans to narrow his list down to two schools, and although he's unsure who one of those schools will be, he knows that West Virginia will definitely have a spot in his final pair.

"It will be one of the schools will decide from. It was a good time and just talking to my uncle and stuff he was telling me about the chances and I'll have more exposure and better players around me," he said.

Glowinski will have three years to play two, and is set to arrive at the school of his choosing in June.
