#HoosOnBoard17: Chris Glaser, OG

Student Sports

Name: Chris Glaser
Position: OG
Hometown: Solon, OH (Solon)
247 Composite: 3*, 84.33

Glaser comes to Virginia off an appearance in the Polynesian Bowl, a postseason all-star game for players of Polynesian descent. He had offers from Army, Iowa State, and Syracuse, in addition to Miami (OH) and Toledo closer to home.

An offensive tackle in high school, Glaser is fast and agile off the line. He hits with a vengeance, knocking his man off balance from first contact then finishing the block all the way into the turf. He put on 15 pounds between his junior and senior seasons, and the positive effects are very visible. Hopefully he’s got another 15 or 20 he can add without sacrificing speed or quickness. I’d also like to see him have a more consistent stance that doesn't telegraph run or pass quite as much.

Welcome to UVA, Chris!
