Glyndon Bolasky

Tucson (Ariz.) Sabino High School has produced two UCLA Bruins in the last several years, and now the program has another prospect that has the Bruins showing interest, 6-0, 190-pound running back <b>Glyndon Bolasky</b>...

In the late ‘90s, Tucson (Ariz.) Sabino sent two players to UCLA; offensive tackle Mike Saffer and receiver Brian Poli-Dixon. One of the top programs in Arizona, Sabino has another touted prospect in running back Glyndon Bolasky (6-0, 190).

Bolasky was at UCLA's Junior Day in March and enjoyed the experience.

"It was pretty cool. I really liked their campus, and they had awesome facilities," Bolasky said. "I met with (assistant) coach (Dino) Babers, and really liked him. I don't remember when he was at Arizona, but I know he coached their a while back."

While the Bruins didn't offer, they are one of Bolasky's top suitors.

He has fours offers to date, from Georgia Tech, Arizona, BYU and New Mexico State, and said Stanford is another school heavily recruiting him.

"Stanford is recruiting me as a running back, and Arizona is recruiting me as an athlete. UCLA has me as an athlete, too. Georgia Tech, New Mexico State and BYU have me as a running back," said Bolasky, who is also hearing from the service academies.

Bolasky will head to the Nike Camp at Stanford in May, and stick around for their Junior Day the following day. He'll also attend Arizona's camp, and is keeping his options open for some more camps this summer. "I'm not in a rush to make a decision. It's still early, and I'm hoping that I'll have a lot of opportunities," Bolasky said.

During his junior year, Bolasky rushed for 1,550 yards on 161 carries and scored 17 touchdowns.

He sports a 3.75 GPA and took the SAT on March 12.
