NAME: Isaiah Glasker
HIGH SCHOOL: Bingham High School (South Jordan, UT)
POSITION: Wide Receiver/Safety
OFFERS FROM: Weber State, BYU
Although Bingham High School’s state title run came to a close in the Utah state 6A quarterfinals against powerhouse Corner Canyon on November 6th, Bingham WR/S Isaiah Glasker put his stamp on the Miners' final performance of the season.
The three-star athlete added to his season totals by logging four receptions - two for touchdowns - and 89 total yards. His final game in a Miners uniform brought his impressive season stats up to 775 total yards, 47 receptions, an average of 70.5 yards per game, and eight touchdown catches.
During his senior season, Isaiah’s best outing came against East High in a nail-biting 29-28 victory for the Miners. Glasker pitched in 10 receptions, including one for a critical touchdown, and 173 receiving yards.
Looking to the future, the 6’5”, 200 lb. wide receiver/safety combo told Weber State Weekly he’d received formal offers from Weber State and BYU. Weber State offered at the wide receiver position, while BYU extended their offer for Glasker to play as a safety. The Cougars also told him there may be an opportunity to switch to the offensive side of the ball later.
When asked about his first college offer, he said, “I was blown away. I couldn’t believe it was actually happening.” That first offer came from BYU all the way back in his sophomore season, but was recently reconfirmed, in addition to the Wildcats joining the mix back in March with an offer of their own.
Adding to Weber State and BYU, Glasker has been in conversations with Laverne, Oregon, Nevada, Miami(FL), Eastern Washington, and Boise State, though no other formal offers have been extended outside of the two
Glasker also told Weber State Weekly that his final decision will be based on discovering an environment where he can focus on a quality education and find a fit with the coaching staff. He is looking to study physical education, sports medicine or physical therapy, all of which have stellar programs at Weber State.
When not spending time prepping for the next big game or suiting up for the Miners’ varsity basketball team, Glasker is playing the latest version of the “NBA2K” or “Madden” video games, roller skating and hanging with friends. He has yet to make his final decision on where he’ll land, but with high school football wrapping up,
we’re certain an answer will come soon.
WALDO’S MAGIC 8 BALL PREDICTION
Will Isaiah land in Ogden? We posed that question to Waldo’s Magic 8 Ball. The answer: “Outlook hazy.” With an FBS team in the mix, it will always be tough for Weber State to compete, but the offer in play is for a defensive position, when much of Glasker’s talent was shown on the offensive side of the ball this season. We’ll know more in the coming months, at which point we can shake the Magic 8 Ball again to get a clearer answer.
