Stevenson (IL) 2019 OL Ivan Gleyzer caught me up on his most recent visits and schools showing serious interest in him. Coach Josh Hjorth also gave me this thoughts on Gleyzer on and off the gridiron.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 270 lbs
LPI: Tell me what you’ve been doing to take your game to the next level. Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason?
IG: I’ve been going to our football workouts five days a week. I’m really focusing on my legs because I realized how important it is for a lineman to have strong legs and good footwork. I study film from my junior season to see what I need to work on for the upcoming 2018 season. I also have been working on raising my gpa.
LPI: What schools have you been in touch with? Do you think any are close to offering?
IG: I’ve talked to a few schools recently, such as Miami of Ohio, and Ball State. I have also talked to NIU, Western Michigan, and Iowa.
LPI: Do you have any planned visits coming up? If so, where at and when?
IG: I don’t have any planned visits coming up at the moment, but I did go to Miami of Ohio’s junior day, and Ball State as well. It was mind blowing to go see the campus and the football facilities. I really enjoyed hearing the tradition of both schools.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Maema Njongmeta (’19) – Maema is one of the most explosive athletes I’ve ever seen. In pass blocking drills he has lined up on me a couple of times, and every time I am blown away by how fast his get off is. He started playing football his freshman year of high school and picked everything up extremely fast. He has a great work ethic on and off the field.
Jm Etienne (’20) – Jm has incredible vision as a running back. He will always find an open hole and hit it hard. He is extremely slippery too. I remember this one run he had in our first game of the year. He juked out 2 db’s and spun out another defender giving us a crucial seven point lead in the 4th quarter.
Danny Hynes (’19) – Danny is a very versatile athlete. He played wide receiver his first two years of high school, and made a switch to DB his junior year. He ended up being a very important role in our defense.
Stevenson coach Josh Hjorth on Gleyzer on and off the field
“Ivan is a dedicated, hard-working young man who is finding his leadership voice. He plays with a tenacity and wants to get after the opponent every play. The biggest thing that stands out is that he is willing to do the dirty work, get physical, and find a way to finish his blocks. We are very excited about him, his work ethic, and his senior year!”
