The Sunshine State has been very good to the Minnesota Golden Gophers this weekend, with head coach P.J. Fleck and his coaching staff reeling in yet another verbal commitment from a Florida recruit, this time in the form of defensive back Jalen Glaze.

Glaze has played cornerback and safety in high school, but he is expected to play the latter for the Gophers. He has great range as a safety and is adept at reading the quarterback’s eyes and making a play on the ball. I am curious about his speed, as he does not seem to possess elite speed, at least based on his highlight heel. One thing you’ll notice from watching his film is that Glaze is fearless. He can play zone and man coverages well and is just as confident flying down the field with a receiver as he is forcing the edge in run support when lined up in the box.
