Recruiting Roundup: Jaiden Glover
Jaiden Glover is a 2024 prospect filled with upside. The 6-foot-6 guard is currently leading a country-wide recruitment. You don’t often find players who check all the boxes, but Glover certainly projects as a Swiss Army knife.
After seeing it up close during his strong showing at The Blueprint Combine in August, we expect big things from Glover heading into the high school season.
Last week, Glover spent time with Pro Insight’s Jake Lieberman to chat about the latest with his recruitment.
For the next installment of “Recruiting Roundup,” we present class of 2024 prospect Jaiden Glover, from Brooklyn, New York:
Pro Insight: What are you hoping to show NCAA coaches throughout the rest of your playing time in high school?
Jaiden Glover: I hope to show them that I can be more than a role player. If need be I want to show that I can carry the bulk of the scoring load, if I need to.
PI: Which programs would you say are currently prioritizing you the most or expressing the most interest?
JG: Rhode Island is definitely at the top of the list in expressing their interest in me. Other schools like Seton Hall have shown up to my practices multiple times.
PI: Where have you visited thus far? Do you have any future visits planned?
JG: I have visited St. John’s and Rhode Island, so far. I have a couple more visits in the works like Maryland, Temple, Penn State, and Iona.
PI: Did you have any dream schools growing up?
JG: When I was younger I used to look up to Kyrie Irving a lot. I wanted to go everywhere he did, so my dream school was Duke.
PI: If you could team up with any high school player in the country when you guys get to college, who would you pick?
JG: I would probably have to say someone like Simeon Wilcher who I used to play with, but didn’t get a chance to play with a lot. He’s a good passer and we can make a lot of highlight plays. PI: How do you project your role at the next level?
JG: At the next level hopefully I will be one of the main scorers on my team. If the team doesn’t think I’m ready for that load yet then I could see myself as a 3-and-D guy to start off, then work my way up.
PI: How’s your timeline looking?
JG: My timeline in the near future. I am going on more visits.
PI: What's your pre-game pump-up song/artist?
JG: My pre-game artists are Kyle Rich or Sleepy Hallow. Those are the two main guys right now.
PI: Which player in the NBA or college would you compare your game to?
JG: I would compare my game to Jayson Tatum or Allan Houston.
