Position: Pick one
High School: East Kentwood - Grand Rapids Michigan
Houston Glass is the type of plyer who's just happy to help the team, no matter where a coach wants to play him. Glass, who's also an All-Area track star, has played pretty much every skill position on the field since he became a stater as a sophomore. He's played defensive back, receiver, running back. The speedster has also been a kick returner and a punt returner.
Before his senior year started Glass was tabbed as an MLive.com West Michigan Dream Team selection this fall. His work in the defensive backfield was enough to get Glass a spot on the West squad of this years Michigan High School Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game. On the offense Glass ran for 557 yards and eight touchdowns, and pulled in 27 passes for 257 yards
Glass has some interest from the Direction Michigan School but took an offer from Buffalo based on the schools Academics.
"Just the academics are the best in the MAC Conference and I can tell the coaches really have your best interest at heart, and I see that they are gonna be a threat the next couple years in the conference." -- Houston Glass to "The D Zone" http://www.thedzone.net/2012/12/houston-glass-of-east-kentwood-commits.html#.URBtBKw_euI
Glass gets up for his games by listening to his playlist and walking the field. He'll now be doing that in Blue and White, he may need to add "The Mighty Quinn" to his playlist.
"Houston is a very physically skilled athlete who runs like a deer, and beyond that, he will bring an unrivaled work ethic. We have not been great the last two or three years, but he worked every single day like he was playing for a state championship." -- East Kentwood coach Jeremy Gaspar
"Like Hudsonville’s Jake Bull previously on this list, Glass was a bright spot for an O-K Red program that had seen better days." -- Lake Michigan Football Report
Seems like a hard worker with enough athletic talent to land on the all area teams multiple times.
Where does Ross fit?
As mentioned above Glass is a repeate allarea athlete in multiple sports and has played several skill postitions with success so it's hard to place just where he may land once he is wearing Royal Blue. The safest assumption is that he is being brought in as a defensive back, specifically as a safety.

UB will return their entire depth chart compliment of defensive backs but four of them are juniors and four are seniors. If he ends up taking a redshirt in 2013 then he will go into 2014 as a freshman on a team with four seniors and four openings in the defensive backfield.
