Good Counsel Standout Picks West Virginia

Good Counsel defensive end Troy Gloster has committed to play football for West Virginia.

"I probably made up my mind about a week ago [but] I wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing," Gloster said before practice Thursday. "I talked to my parents about it and when I told my dad that was what I wanted to do, he said, 'Well, what are you waiting for?' "

Gloster, who will play safety or linebacker in college, said that assistant coach Jeff Casteel made the biggest impact on his decision making.

"Out of everybody recruiting me, I felt the strongest with him," said the 6-foot, 220-pound Gloster.

Gloster said that he also strongly considered Michigan and Stanford.

"I visited Stanford at the end of the summer," he said. "I was planning on visiting Michigan, but I decided it wasn't necessary so I went ahead and committed."

His older brother, Drew, was an All-Met at Good Counsel and is a reserve junior linebacker. While Troy said the two initially talked about possibly being college teammates, it was never a serious consideration; Maryland did not offer him a scholarship.

"Early on, it was a topic that came up a lot," Troy said. "We're really close and talked about how fun it would be. At the same time, my brother understood. He wanted me to do what was best for me."

Was he not offered at UMD because he's not good enough, or because the Fridge knows he didn't have a shot at landing him, so why bother?
