Gregg Glenn, a four-star prospect and one of the top power forwards in the 2022 class, announced Wednesday morning he has trimmed his top list of schools down to five — Michigan, Georgia, Virginia Tech, South Florida and Ionia.
Juwan Howard and the Wolverines have been recruiting Glenn (6-foot-7, 215 pounds) for a while now. The longevity of how hard a program is recruiting a prospect can always go a long way. Another plus for Michigan in this recruitment is his close friendship with Howard’s two sons — Jett and Jace. Jett, who is also a 2022 prospect and likely to end up playing for his father at Michigan, took to Instagram back in April to wish Glenn a happy birthday.
“Michigan is like family to me. Juwan Howard is like my uncle so that’s probably one of my top schools,” Glenn told 247Sports’ Dushawn London back in January ($). “I think it would be fun to play for coach Juwan because I would be able to have freedom while at the same time playing team ball. Being under him he could probably get me to the NBA. Their message has been the same thing, that they can help make my dreams come true. I’ve also been watching and I think this team can win a national championship this year.”
He plays high school basketball at Calvary Christian Academy down in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As a junior during the 2020-21 season, Glenn averaged 13.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.8 steals per game in 23 games played.
Along with playing at his high school, Glenn also won a gold medal while on the USA Basketball Junior National U16 team back in 2019.
His final list of five is interesting, considering he had some other really good offers from the likes of Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Maryland, Pitt and others. The other main schools he told London about back in January aren’t even on his current top five list.
With the Wolverines being the mainstay school involved here, I would not be surprised if Michigan were the leader in this recruitment.
Glenn is the No. 17 power forward and No. 95 overall player in his class, per the 247Sports composite. The lone crystal ball is in for the Wolverines.
