Najee Glass (Jersey City, N.J./St. Peter's Prep) said he has plenty to prove during the 2011 season. Among the things on his to-do list: Establish himself as an FBS football recruit. Glass is known more for his ability as a track and field athlete. He set a national record in the 500-meter dash (1 minute, 2.22 seconds) at the New Balance Games in January, although the record was later rescinded when it was ruled that Glass ran inside his lane. Nevertheless, his speed has caught the attention of several major FCS programs. Glass said he receives mail from about 10 schools, but added that Rutgers is the only school that's shown serious interest to this point.
