This year, Alabama A&M ran through the SWAC. It was a team effort for sure, but Aqeel Glass was monumental on the growth of their young quarterback. AAMU trailed 26-18 at halftime against Arkansas Pine-Bluff and they came out of halftime another team.
Alabama A&M scored 22 unanswered points, and Glass had a crazy game. He went 24-45 throwing for 271 yards and three touchdowns, but it was not his strong arm that solely led the team, he was able to make some huge plays with his legs as well.
Glass had a huge season finishing with 16 passing touchdowns to just four interceptions. Three of those interceptions were from future NFL defensive back Decobie Durant of South Carolina State. Glass has 7,376 passing yards and 68 touchdowns in three years at AAMU. The Bulldogs have a great prospect in their 6’5 gunslinger from St. Louis, Missouri.
NFL teams love quarterbacks that can stand in the pocket and deliver a strike. Glass has NFL size, and has great arm strength. I am a huge fan of Glass and I feel if he can continue his success in the fall, he could hear his name called in the 2022 NFL Draft.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Aqeel Glass is a more athletic Philip Rivers, with great decision making. The AAMU star can make every NFL throw, he has a deep ball and can throw a rocket of a pass across the middle. Glass is a big kid that is hard to bring down and he has some deep threats on his team. This year I expect Glass to have a solid year and end up at an All-Star Game. He maybe the best HBCU quarterback in the entire draft. – Damond Talbot – NFL Draft Diamonds owner
