  • Four-star wing Jaiden Glover eyes St. John’s after St. Joe’s visit

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Jaiden Glover, the four-star wing from The Patrick School (N.J.) and the Riverside Hawks, is eyeing his St. John’s visit next week after tripping to St. Joe’s this week.

    Glover will hit St. John’s on Thursday and Rick Pitino and his staff are hoping he will become the program’s second Class of 2024 commit following Greek shooting guard Lefteris Liotopoulos.

    “I like it,” he told of St. John’s. “Obviously [Pitino’s] coaching experience in the NBA, I can’t wait to see how they perform this year with him as their coach.”

    Pitino and his staff have created tremendous buzz in recent months, and are a borderline Top 25 team entering the 2023-24 season. They will hold an open practice for fans Oct. 1 at Carnsesecca Arena.

    Glover plays at The Patrick School, the successor the St. Patrick High School where Kyrie Irving starred before going to Duke and then the NBA. Irving has worked out with Glover and other Patrick School players, including Golden State Warriors wing Jonathan Kuminga, in recent years.

    “The advice he gave me was don’t rush anything,” Glover told the NY Post last month. “Just play confident, know your game. There was one specific time, he was like, I’m really athletic, I shouldn’t try to dunk everything, I should use my athleticism to finish around the rim more creatively when there’s taller defenders I might not be able to finish over.”

    Glover last month announced a top 8 of St Johns, Seton Hall, Creighton Illinois, Villanova, Providence, Ohio State and St. Joe’s. He has no other visits planned besides St. John’s.

    His most recent visit was to St. Joe’s this week.

    “I really like them,” he told 247 of St. Joe’s. “They are super cool. Coach Billy Lange is super cool, they’re all relatable. After that visit it felt like a brotherhood over there.”

    Glover told 247 he’s “not really sure” when he’ll commit.

    “Just what feels right, what feels like home,” he said. “It’s where I will spend my next couple of years so I want to be as comfortable as possible and be able to achieve my dream which is the NBA.”
