‘This is home for me’: Why Justin Glenn is uniquely suited to excel as UW’s director of recruiting

There are two constants in this story: the subject, and the setting.

On Aug. 27, 2012, Justin Glenn — a Mukilteo native and former Kamiak High School standout — leaned forward in his chair at the University of Washington, with a purple block “W” printed on his chest. The UW defensive back was four days out from the first game of his fifth and final season, an eventual 21-12 win over San Diego State. His time on Montlake, it seemed, was steadily coming to a close. This is where he spent countless fall Saturdays as a kid, routinely stopping at Dick’s Drive-In for a burger and a strawberry shake before heading to Husky Stadium.
