Former OSU transfer and Kentucky target Eric Glover-Williams headed to… Slippery Rock?


Back in November, it looked like Kentucky was a lock to receive a commitment from former UA All-American four-star defensive back and Ohio State Buckeye Eric Glover-Williams.

247 Sports’ Bill Green’s sources told him Glover-Williams and his family had “been in contact with the Kentucky admissions department,” and following a visit back in November for the UK vs. UofL game, he was likely to make it official.

After speaking to a source close to the Kentucky program, and also to the father of former four-star recruit Eric Glover-Williams, it appears the former Ohio State player could be on his way to Lexington, Kentucky.

Glover-Williams, now at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, has been in contact with the Kentucky admissions department per his father, Jerry Williams, and he was assured he will meet their academic standards by obtaining his associates degree and securing a 2.5 GPA.

And then things went silent.

Now, six months later, Glover-Williams has reportedly committed to… Slippery Rock?

Vince Marrow and the Kentucky Wildcats were the first to offer Glover-Williams out of high school, but he opted for Ohio State over the Cats, Michigan State, and Tennessee, among others.

After playing 20 games with the Buckeyes, he was dismissed from the program and enrolled at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. When he was looking to get back into D1 football, Marrow reached out to Glover-Williams about playing SEC football for the Cats, and there was heavy mutual interest. There were even rumors that the star defensive-back had already begun taking classes at the University of Kentucky.

Now, he’ll be playing for Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, a Division II school with an enrollment of just over 7,000 students.

Odd.

    If he was at the U6 at UK game I can understand his decision to not come here. First football game I have ever left early and I left at halftime. Keep in mind I drive 3.5 hours each way for these games and I watched us lose 60-0 at UF way back in the day but stayed till the end. Most disappointing effort I have EVER seen. Yet I did renew and even upgrade my season tix this year. #keephoping

      Hey guys. I found the Louisville troll.

      strat-way to show your ignorance. Most U6 trolls would stay and watch and cheer the guys as they were losing 59-0{think that was the final it was Tim Couch 1st game in the swamp}. And most U6 trolls drive 3.5 hours each way 7 times a year to watch a UK football game. What in my comment makes me a troll you idot. That game was the worst effort I have ever seen and most UK fans I talked to as we left {yes there was alot of us trolls leaving at halftime at that game} agreed. You want to call me a troll to my face be happy to see you at game 1, I am in section 203-1st row.

    Yeah. Not odd at all really. Clearly reasons he doesn’t have the option to attend better schools.

      Correct

    I’d rather this happen than for us to take him in and cheat up his gpa just to join . The football department & admissions are being responsible . Go big blue
