Louisville Basketball Recruiting Roundup: 2023 Kentucky Spotlight

With the 2022 class quickly approaching their senior seasons, attention has started to trickle down to the 2023 cycle as well. After putting together an impressive 2021 class, Louisville head coach Chris Mack looks to ride the momentum into the following campaigns as well. Luckily for the Cardinals, they don’t have to look far. The state of Kentucky has a handful of notable 2023 prospects that have already drawn interest from Louisville. Let’s take a look at each of the prospects that are/could end up on the team’s radar.

Louisville Male SF Kaleb Glenn

Measureables: 6-foot-6, 200 lbs

Ranking: 44th-overall, top recruit in KY (247Sports)

Notable offers: Louisville, Indiana, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Cincinnati, Arizona State, Wake Forest, West Virginia

Strengths: Athleticism, interior toughness, offensive efficiency, footwork in the paint

Louisville comparison: Chane Behanan build/Montrezl Harrell skillset

Bottom Line: Glenn is likely to be one of, if not the top prospect on the 2023 board. The Louisville native has visited the hometown Cardinals twice in the past month, while watching his stock soar. Keep an eye out on this one.

North Laurel CG Reed Sheppard

Measureables: 6-foot-2, 170 lbs

Ranking: 65th-overall, #2 in KY (247Sports)

Notable offers: Louisville, Iowa, Texas A&M, Arizona State

Strengths: Court vision, shot creation, three-level scoring, ball-handling

Louisville comparison: Quentin Snider

Bottom Line: This could very well turn into a Bluegrass battle between Louisville and Kentucky for Sheppard’s services. Despite him being a legacy recruit, the Cardinals will be in this recruitment until the very end.

Christian Academy G George Washington III

Measureables: 6-foot-2, 165 lbs

Ranking: 74th-overall, #3 in KY (247Sports)

Notable offers: Louisville, Ohio State, Auburn

Strengths: Advancing scoring repertoire, perimeter shooting, high-basketball IQ

Louisville comparison: Terry Rozier

Bottom Line: If Glenn and Sheppard are 1A/1B, Washington III are close behind them. A solid summer of AAU play and more games in front of Mack could potentially vault him into “must-get” status.

Ballard G Gabe Sisk

Measurables: 6-foot-3, 180 lbs

Ranking: NR

Notable offers: Iona, Eastern Kentucky

Strengths: Perimeter shooting, shot creation, size

Louisville comparison: Anton Gill

Bottom Line: It is yet to be seen if Sisk is a power-five conference level prospect, but Louisville will likely keep tabs. Sisk will need a big summer and junior season to become a possible option on the Cardinals’ radar.
