Glover on his commitment to St. John’s

Jaiden Glover briefly spoke to On3 about his decision to choose St. John’s.

“I chose St. John’s because of Coach (Rick) Pitino’s resume and his plans for the future,” he said.

“I’m excited to be playing for you guys next year. Go Johnnies!”

Scouting Report

“Jaiden Glover has a great frame. He is naturally strong, with long arms, and some projectability for continued growth in a college weight program. He is a good shooter, that is what his offensive game plays off of. Standing in the 6-foot-5 range, Glover is comfortable off the catch and off the bounce. He gets his feet set and shoots with good balance. At times, the release can be a little slow, would like to to him continue to speed that up as he continues forward. Glover is a good athlete in transition, finishing above the rim, and he attacks the basket in straight lines. Would like to see him continue to develop the handle in the half court, use his wiggle to add some counters if his path is cut off. Glover had the measurables and demeanor to be a good defender, quick enough to guard on the ball and the instincts and length to guard off ball. All in all, Glover’s best basketball should be ahead of him. There are a lot of natural tools that project forward and a track record of consistent growth.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
