Basketball Recruiting

Top-50 sophomore Kaleb Glenn talks visit plans, updates recruitment

May 13, 2021

It all started with a quick trip to Louisville, Kentucky prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.

That’s when I walked into the gym to watch Male High School and I saw this 6-foot-7 prospect and it happened to be Kaleb Glenn. Within minutes of game action, you could already tell the potential of Glenn after realizing he was just a freshman at the time.

You want to talk about a rim runner and attacking the basket, Glenn is fully capable of doing that for a full four-quarter game. In addition, he’s active on the boards and even saw himself as one of the state's top rebounders, averaging an excellent 12.6 rebounds per game this past season. 

It doesn’t stop there. Glenn is a multi-dimensional scorer who can score in several ways and uses his physical frame, which is developing at a vast rate for a sophomore, to find ways to get to the basket and/or involves his teammates. In addition, Glenn prides himself on the defensive end and could play a physical four at the next level and many college coaches could second that.

Glenn burst onto the scene instantly last year. Now, after yet another good season out of him with Male, Glenn will now take his talents to the EYBL scene where he will team up with Brad Beal Elite who has a string of prospects who have advanced to the next level, including most recently with a McDonald’s All-American in Caleb Love. and Glenn teamed up to discuss his recruitment, planned visits, and his overall thoughts on his sophomore season.

Which schools would you say are heavily involved despite it being early?

“Louisville, West Virginia, and Indiana, I hear from them the most out of the rest of the schools.”

How about schools that are involved outside of those three programs?

“Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, WKU, Cincinnati, UCLA.”

Discuss Louisville. What have talks been like with them and what are your thoughts on the local school?

“Me and Coach Fennell have been talking every week and building a relationship which is very key for me and my family. With me being from Louisville, I know a lot about it already, and plus my parents played sports there.”

West Virginia, they have a deep history and got on you early, thoughts on them and what you know about Bob Huggins.

“He’s a hall-of-fame coach, he knows how to win at a high level every year. He’s built a great program over there. He thinks I’ll fit in their system perfectly.”

Cincinnati was also on you hard prior to the coaching change, where do things stand with them now?

“They have reached back out. That staff, as well, wants to make me a priority.”

Now, you have those two visits planned to Louisville and WVU, any other possible visits?

“We want to try and get on Indiana and Cincinnati’s campuses but no official dates have been made as of right now. And potentially Western Kentucky also.”

What will you be looking for on these visits?

“I want to get to meet coaches and players, tour the campuses, see the basketball facilities they got, just basically want to know more about the school and see it for myself instead of seeing it on zoom.”

And now, discuss your game, how do you feel you played this season

“I’m versatile. I can play on the perimeter with my three-point and driving abilities and also can play in the post and get buckets inside. Also, I am a good rebounder for my size and I can play post and perimeter defense.”
