Kaleb Glenn’s reaction to the past week in Louisville basketball is probably at lot like yours. 

“It’s crazy,” Glenn said Monday night. 

The 6-foot-6 junior wing from Male has some investment in all the madness. He’s the only basketball player in the high school class of 2023 committed to play for the Cardinals

That hasn’t changed in the wake of Louisville parting ways with coach Chris Mack. 

“As of right now I’m still locked in,” Glenn said Monday after Male’s win at Christian Academy. “I’m gonna wait until whatever happens with the new coach and go from there.”

Glenn is a four-star recruit according to the 247Sports composite rankings, which rates him the No. 12 small forward and the No. 54 player in the class of 2023. He committed to Louisville last September, choosing it over Indiana and Tennessee, among others. 

“Me and Coach Mack had a good relationship, and it’s sad to see him go,” Glenn said. “But I know they did what’s best for the program, and he did what’s best for him.”

Glenn still would like to play for the Cardinals, and he doesn’t consider his recruitment open. He’ll hold off any decisions about his commitment until he knows who would be coaching him at Louisville. 

“I just want to build a relationship with the next coach like I had with Coach Mack,” he said. “I’m big on relationships. I need a good relationship with a coach, to feel like he’s got me and I got him.”
