This weekend signified one of the key milestones in high school basketball recruiting. After a long, grueling year of live streams and no in-person feel for prospects, college coaches were finally able to make their way onto the road and attend high school live period events. 

In Shelbyville, Kentucky, Chris Gaither hosted the talent-packed Titans/Rockets shootout at Collins High School. The event was a 64-team event with teams based out of Kentucky, Indiana, and Florida. The event included Louisville Male, a program that features a Top-50 sophomore or junior-to-be in Kaleb Glenn.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound small forward had a nice influx of coaches watch him on day one. Cincinnati’s Wes Miller, Western Kentucky’s Rick Stansberry, Louisville, Texas A&M, Virginia, Boston College, and several others. In addition, West Virginia is expected to watch him on the final day of the event.

Glenn balled out, he led Male to two marquee wins on night one, and even finished his final game Friday night bending the rim, with some help from his teammate Dez Lindsay. A rim-runner, high-motor, an improving three-point shooter, and a crafty yet physical small forward, Glenn gives you a lotta bit of everything (!).

After night one completed, we were able to catch Glenn and he answered all of Stockrisers.com’s questions at Collins High School this weekend.


Discuss how you felt you played over the first few games?

“I felt like I played good for the most part. Was trying to do things to win the game outside of scoring.”

What did it feel like to play in front of coaches again?

“It felt good playing in front of college coaches again and being able to showcase my talents to them live.”

Who would you say is the heaviest involved recruitment-wise?

“Louisville, Indiana, West Virginia, and Cincinnati.”

Louisville had staff here. Discuss your relationship with them and their pitch?

“Louisville has been going after me hard. We have a good relationship right now. They want me to commit and be a hometown hero.”

Indiana will have you on campus upcoming, what are things like with them?

“I’ve been in talks with Indiana since August whenever Coach Archie was there and had a good relationship with him. Then when Coach Woodson came in, they have established that I am a priority and want to build a great relationship. I will be in Bloomington next Thursday on the 24th and I can’t wait to get up there.”

UC’s Wes Miller was here, discuss Cincinnati’s recruitment of you.

“And Cincy just like Indiana, they have got on me early whenever Brannen was there and offered. With Coach Miller coming in they tell me I’m a major priority and that they are really big on getting me to become a Bearcat. I plan on visiting there in the future.”
