Coach Mack and Co. received the enormous news today that Louisville’s own Kaleb Glenn will be staying home to play for the Cardinals. The Male High product will lead what is shaping up to be a stellar group as he becomes the first member of the Cardinals’ 2023 class.
100000% COMMITTED! WE STAYING HOME ❤️ ‼️ Let’s get it Card Nation! pic.twitter.com/Vi6h2BecI4— ☝ (@ka1ebglenn) September 24, 2021
A composite four-star prospect, Glenn is currently rated by 247 Sports as the No. 41 overall player in the class of 2023, and No. 61 by Rivals, making him a composite No. 39 overall player. He is ranked nationally as the composite No. 9 small forward, and the No. 2 overall player in Kentucky. He picked Louisville over Indiana, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Cincinnati, Arizona State, and West Virginia, among others.
The 6-7 forward Glenn averaged 20.6 points and 12.6 rebounds per game while shooting 71% from the field as a sophomore last season. He was named First-Team All-State and a MaxPreps All-American, and his rebounding average led the state of Kentucky for class of 2023 players. This is a big one.
Louisville had recently been named to his shortlist and I’m not sure many believed he was this close to making a decision. Glenn is as strong of a “must get” for Mack, and for him to commit this early speaks volumes and sparks a lot of excitement for the future.
Congrats to Glenn on joining the Cardinal family.
