The Kentucky staff is off to a fast start as Tuesday was the first official day coaches can contact class of 2023 prospects.
One of those players to get a phone call was four-star forward and Louisville native Kaleb Glenn. Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers broke the news Tuesday morning that Glenn was one of the first recruits Kentucky reached out to.
Kentucky has now reached out to Top-50 sophomore Kaleb Glenn, he told @Stockrisers. Jai Lucas reaching out to the Louisville native who’s ranked amongst the 50 best sophomores in the country. https://t.co/grMSM91xsd— Jake (@jakeweingarten) June 15, 2021
Alongside Kentucky Glenn has also heard from Arkansas, Memphis, Illinois, Ohio State, and Indiana. He also has received offers today from Wake Forest, Arizona State, South Carolina, and Louisville, according to Weingarten. He also picked up an offer from West Virginia back in October.
The 6-6, 200-pound forward plays for Louisville Male and is currently ranked as the 44th-best player in the country, according to 247 Sports. He is also considered the ninth-best small forward in the country by the same service.
Glenn is exactly the type of player you look for at small forward in today’s game. He is an explosive athlete that can get take his defender off of the dribble or catch the ball in the post, and find a way to finish. He has also shown a good ability to shoot the ball from deep as well.
Defensively, it is much as the same. Glenn either uses his body and strength to guard in the post, or he can use his length and speed to bother guards out front.
It appears this recruitment is about to take off, and for good reason. So Kentucky getting in early on the first day they could reach out could go along way.
If Glenn continues to develop he might not only be considered one of the best players in the state, but could be one of the best players in this class.
