They are part of a 25-strong National Elite Development programme, with a further 11 players aligned to Edinburgh Rugby and three to Scotland Sevens.
Five of the group have been selected in the Scotland under-20 squad for the IRB Junior World Championship, which kicks-off in France today.
Ayr stand-off Finn Russell, currently in New Zealand as part of the Macphail Scholarship, Stirling County number eight Adam Ashe, Currie hooker Fergus Scott and Ayr prop George Hunter remain from last season.
On board for the first time are Sale Sharks flanker Will Bordill, scrum-half Ali Price from Bedford Blues, full-back Gavin Lowe from Ayr, winger Rory Hughes from Stirling County, centre Jack Steele from Dundee, lock Andrew Redmayne from Dundee and prop Darcy Rae from Ayr.
Rory Hughes has been part of the Elite Development programme as a sevens player for the last two seasons and is now switching over.
Price, Bordill, Ashe, Hughes and Rae are all included in the Scotland under-20 squad for the IRB Junior World Championship.
All Elite Development players will benefit from training with the Warriors squad as well as one-to-one guidance and support from Elite Development coach Iain Monaghan and a variety of specialist coaches. They will also be available to play club rugby subject to their Warriors’ commitments and individual development plan.
Glasgow Warriors Elite Development coach Iain Monaghan said: “This group have got an excellent opportunity to be involved with the club and train with the squad next season. It’s up to them to work hard to improve and take their opportunities to play for the Warriors when they are given the chance. Playing is viewed as their most important experience for their development.
“Those that are new to the programme will learn to work, train and live life in a professional rugby environment and those returning will be able to continue their development at Scotstoun.
Stuart Hogg only recently graduated from the programme and he’s now playing for the British & Irish Lions, which is what they can all aspire to.
“We’re looking forward to working with them during the course of the season and supporting and educating them as young men and players to realise their own potential as future professional rugby players.”
