There isn’t much news on the big recruiting websites about Glenn. On the ESPN Football Recruiting post, Glenn chose the Cyclones over Western Illinois, South Dakota, and South Dakota State.

The 6-foot-4, 265-pound offensive lineman was named on the first team All-Conference CIML Offensive Line in the Iowa division and second team 4A All-State Offensive Line in 2012. A couple nuggets from his Hudl athlete profile include running a 4.86-second 40-yard dash and has a 25-inch vertical leap.

Multiple videos that highlight his latest season can be found on the same Hudl profile.

According to a message board post at Cyclone Fanatic (and sources across other message boards), Glenn will be given a grey shirt. In general, that means the student will be part-time in the fall and will be a full-time student beginning January 1st. This gives the school some flexibility on when that scholarship begins.

From the videos, Glenn looks like a solid addition to the recruiting class, giving the team more depth on the line for the younger quarterbacks next season.
