Katy’s Glass chooses Oklahoma State over Alabama, others
Article by Gavin Moritz
Former Katy Tigers star running back Deondrick Glass announced on Monday that he will be continuing his athletic and academic career at Oklahoma State University starting in the fall. Glass had previously narrowed his choice down to his top six on December 10th. His top six, in no order, was Texas, Alabama, Michigan, Miami, Oklahoma State and Georgia.
Glass, in his time at Katy, rushed for over 6,000 yards and also scored over 100 touchdowns, including a 1,924 yard/30 touchdown senior campaign. Glass was also the district 19-6A MVP his senior year, just one of the many accolades that Deondrick accumulated throughout his storied Tiger career.
When I spoke to Glass about his decision and why he chose Oklahoma State, he stated that he “felt like Oklahoma State was just the best fit for (him) and would help (him) become a better person on and off the field”. When I asked Deondrick about the legacy he’s leaving behind at Katy High School, he said that he think he’s “leaving a legacy as one of, if not the best, backs to ever come through Katy” and he appreciates everything the program has done for him.
Glass will officially sign with Oklahoma State on February 6th, National Signing Day, at Katy High School.
