Junior-college defensive lineman Cherokee Glasgow announces commitment to Maryland

Lackawanna College defensive lineman Cherokee Glasgow announced his commitment to Maryland on Friday, saying he’d join the program this summer.

The junior-college prospect played for Mount Vernon High (N.Y.), earning all-conference honors as a linebacker, and graduated in 2015. At Lackawanna this past season, he was named second-team All-Northeast Conference. He appeared in all nine games this year, finishing with 2½ sacks and 23 tackles (4½ for loss).

Glasgow’s most recent scholarship offers were from Division II programs such as West Virginia Wesleyan and Virginia-Wise. The Scrantona, Pa.-based Lackawanna has produced such NFL players as Ravens lineman Jermaine Eluemunor, former Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro and 2015 first-round draft pick Kevin White.

In his Twitter post announcing his pledge, Glasgow wrote that he took special-education classes until 10th grade, for which he was ridiculed. He said he's "his momma's first boy” to graduate from high school and college.
