    Class of 2023 forward Kaleb Glenn included Tennessee in his top four Friday, On3.com’s Joseph Tipton reported.

    Louisville, Indiana and Texas A&M join Tennessee in the 6-foot-6 small forward’s top four.

    Glenn ranks as 41st best player in the country and 10th best small forward in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings.

    While Tennessee is clearly in the thick of Glenn’s recruitment they’re still playing a little bit of catch up. The top-50 prospect visited both Indiana and Louisville this summer after the NCAA began allowing college’s to host visitors.

    Glenn also has official visits set this fall for Louisville, Indiana and Texas A&M but not Tennessee. The Kentucky native told Tipton that he planned on officially visiting Tennessee on Sept. 11 but he is now taking the ACT that day. Glenn will try to set up a visit to Knoxville later this fall.

    The hometown Cardinals could be tough to beat in the Louisville native’s recruitment but Rick Barnes and his staff have had as much success as anyone on the recruiting trail the last few seasons and shouldn’t be counted out.

    The state of Kentucky’s top prep player does not hold an offer from the state’s premier program Kentucky. A Wildcats’ offer could throw a wrench into Glenn’s recruitment.

    Tennessee currently has no commits in the 2023 class and just one in the 2022 class. The possibility of reclassifying into the 2022 class is on Glenn’s radar, but isn’t something he’s seriously considering right now.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
