With the recruiting dead period ending at the end of the month, college football teams aren’t the only programs preparing to host high school athletes on both official and unofficial visits.
Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers will be hosting one of their top targets next month.
2023 forward Kaleb Glenn (6’6″, 185) from Male High School in Louisville, Kentucky tells West Virginia Sports Now that he will travel to Morgantown for the first time for an unofficial visit on June 12. A week before visiting the Mountaineers, Glenn will make an unofficial visit to Louisville.
At this stage of his recruitment, Glenn holds offers from West Virginia, Cincinnati, Iowa State and Western Kentucky.
“West Virginia has been in the mix since back in August when they offered me,” Glenn told West Virginia Sports Now. “I’ve got to become pretty familiar with Coach Huggins and Coach Everhart. I’ve had a few talks with them and plus my high school coach is pretty close with Coach Everhart. Seems like there’s always been a lot of interest from West Virginia. Building that relationship is obviously a key part of recruiting and West Virginia and I have a good one.”
“When talking with them, they tell me that I fit their system perfectly and they believe that I could become the next pro player to come from West Virginia. I’ve went back and watched a lot of film from West Virginia this past season and I believe that I would fit in very well with what they do if I would decide to go there. They say that they recruit aggressive, physical 4’s like me. Inside/outside guys that can press up, that play good defense and could also score on the offensive end.”

Glenn went on to describe himself as a versatile player that can score from down low or out on the outside. Same with his defensive skills, as he’s shown the ability to defend players in the post along with players up front.
Glenn is looking forward to really getting his recruiting started by making his first visits and wants to meet the West Virginia coaches in person and get on campus.
“I hear that Morgantown is a good city and that they have great facilities and it’s a good school. I want to get to meet and really know the coaches and also meet some of the players.”
