South Carolina football coach Shane Beamer and his staff hosted a big-time group of visitors in Columbia this past weekend. Prospects from both the 2025 recruiting class and 2026 cycle were on campus, and word from around the program is that the Gamecocks made quite an impression on a number of the prospects and their families.

One of the players with positive things to say about his time on campus was 4-star offensive lineman Dontrell Glover. Glover posted on social media that he had a great time on his visit. Then, shortly after the official visit ended, Glover revealed that he was ready to make his decision. A July 1st decision date is incoming for the Georgia native.

Glover's top-4 programs are the South Carolina Gamecocks, Tennessee Volunteers, Florida State Seminoles, and Georgia Bulldogs. Some in the recruiting world believe that Florida State is the leader in his recruitment, while others think things are a bit more wide open. He was previously committed to Alabama but decommitted with Nick Saban's retirement.

Positionally, Glover has played all over the offensive line during his high school career, but he will be an interior lineman at the college level in all likelihood.

As a player, Glover is a solidly built and versatile lineman who uses his length and athleticism to make life difficult on defenders and his lower-body strength to punish most players he gets his hands on in the trenches. If he refines his technique and adds a little bit of muscle and conditioning in a college weight room, he could develop into an elite run blocker.

In pass protection, Glover has gotten much more experience learning drop steps and other pass blocking techniques than many other interior linemen because of his time playing left tackle at Langston Hughes High School. He is not a finished product there, either, but the potential is there for Glover to be a strong point up front.
