A pair of highly-rated basketball recruits are making unofficial visits to West Virginia Saturday afternoon in center Shawn Phillip Jr. and forward Kaleb Glenn.

Phillips (6-foot-11) is a 2022 recruit from Ypsi Prep Academy in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He is originally from Dayton, Ohio, making him the latest high-touted Ohio product pursued by Bob Huggins.

Phillips is rated as one of the best center prospects in the nation. 247Sports has him as the 11th best, Rivals has him at six and ESPN has him at 22. He holds offers from Auburn, Pitt, Indiana, NC State, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Dayton and Maryland. Phillips has already visited Illinois, Xavier and Dayton and has plans to visit Pitt and NC State later this month.

Glenn (6-foot-7) is a 2023 recruit from Louisville Male High School in Louisville, Kentucky.

Glenn lists himself as a small forward and, like Phillips, is regarded as one of the best in his class. 247Sports rates Glenn as the no. 44 recruit in the nation, the best recruit in Kentucky and the ninth-best small forward in the 2023 class. Glenn told Stock Risers that Louisville, WVU and Indiana are the three schools pursuing him the hardest with Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Cincinnati and UCLA also showing interest.

Last month, Glenn told WVSN that he would fit into WVU’s system as a physical four.

“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.”

WVU currently has two commits in its 2022 class, Josiah Harris and Joaish Davis and no commits for 2023.
