Glenn announced his transfer to the Owls on Thursday afternoon, two days after visiting FAU on April 23rd. He leaves the ACC's Louisville Cardinals after one season. In his freshman campaign, he averaged 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds on 48.6% shooting from the field in 32 games.

He had plenty of bright moments throughout the 2023-24 season, especially in two games. He had a career-high 17 points on 7-11 shooting from the field against Pittsburgh and achieved his first collegiate double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds in a win against Georgia Tech. The latter saw him grab nine offensive rebounds, the most by a Cardinal since Chane Behanan in 2012 and the most by a Louisville freshman on record.

Glenn was one of the few bright spots of the Louisville squad during that season. The Cardinals finished their 2023-24 campaign with an overall record of just 8-24 and 3-17 in ACC play, resulting in the dismissal second-year head coach Kenny Payne.

He came out of La Lumiere School, a prep school basketball power in northern Indiana, as a four-star recruit with a score of 90. He was ranked the fourth-best player in the state of Indiana and the 26th-best small forward in the country. He had multiple Power Five offers from Indiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and West Virginia before committing to Louisville in September 2021.

Glenn averaged 15.2 points and 9.1 rebounds as a senior at La Lumiere while shooting 54% from the field, 39% from three, and 82% from the free-throw line. He was also named Third-Team All-NIBC and ranked first in the conference in free-throw percentage in conference games, as well as second in rebounds per game and minutes played per game.

A broadly built wing with a physical style, Glenn is a monster on his attack and moves well laterally for a prospect of his stature. His frame and athleticism make him a versatile asset on both ends of the floor.

“Glenn is a strong forward who plays comfortably, with the ball in his hands, from the high post and mid-post areas,” Rivals National Recruiting Analyst Jamie Shaw said. “He can rip through and get downhill, or face up and knock down the jump shot. Glenn plays with a toughness in straight lines.”

Having entered the portal on March 18th, Glenn's rating improved to a 91 score as the 27th-best small forward in the nation and the 134th-best overall.
