LITTLE ROCK — Starting at midnight on Tuesday, June 15, which was the first time Division 1 coaches could reach out directly to 2023 recruits, the Arkansas Razorbacks coaching staff lit up the phone / text lines by contacting 20-plus prospects with more to follow.

From 5-star talents to emerging, under-the-radar 3-stars, the Hogs once again cast a wide recruiting net.

One of those recruiting targets that Arkansas reached out to at or around midnight is national Top 50 prospect Kaleb Glenn (6-6 small forward, Louisville Male High School, composite national No. 44 / 4-star).

“They did (reach out) after midnight,” said Glenn, who said he heard from Head Hog Eric Musselman. “He told me he really likes watching me play and thinks I can fit into their NBA system offense. They want to build a relationship going forward.”

Glenn said he’s not yet established visit plans with Arkansas.

“I don’t know as of right now,” he said. “We have only texted, could probably get something set up once we get on the phone.”

Glenn holds offers from Louisville, Arizona State, South Carolina, Iowa State, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, and Western Kentucky.

Arkansas also reached out to at least four 2023 in-state prospects: Bryson Warren (6-2 point guard, Little Rock native), Layden Blocker (6-2 point guard, Little Rock), Ryan Forrest (6-3 guard/wing, Marion), and Jayden Forrest (6-1 point guard, Marion).
