Indiana jumped into the fray with a new scholarship offer during a busy day for class of 2023 prospects.
Louisville based 4-star forward Kaleb Glenn announced an offer from IU on on Tuesday evening.
After a call with the Indiana staff, Glenn posted the news on his Twitter page.
“Blessed to receive an offer from Coach Woodson and Indiana University,” Glenn wrote.

Glenn is the No. 44 player in the class of 2023 according to 247Sports and the No. 9 small forward. He was offered by at least four other schools on Tuesday, the first day that college coaches could directly contact members of the class of 2023. Arizona State, Louisville, South Carolina and Wake Forest also offered Glenn according to various reports. He previously had offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, West Virginia and Western Kentucky.
Glenn averaged 20.6 points and 12.6 rebounds per game while shooting 71% from the field as a sophomore at Louisville Male High School. He was named First-Team All-State and a MaxPreps All-American, and his rebounding average led the state of Kentucky for class of 2023 players.
The 6-foot-7 Glenn has been talking to IU going back to last year, but the new staff has made it clear he is high on their priority list.
“Coach Woodson and the coaching staff are very high on me,” Glenn told The Daily Hoosier during a conversation in May.
During that conversation last month, Glenn said one of the reasons he is impressed with Indiana is Mike Woodson’s NBA background.
“He’s been there, done that, where I am trying to get to,” Glenn said of Woodson. “He’s coached on the highest level for many years. That’s a big factor.”
Growing up in Louisville, the IU program hasn’t been far away, so of course Glenn is aware of it.
“I’ve seen a lot of Indiana basketball,” Glenn said. “I know they’re a great program and they’ve won a lot since they’ve been a program. A lot of good players have come through there, a lot of players who are in the league.”
Glenn said in May that he was working with Indiana to set up a visit this summer. He is the third player in the class of 2023 offered by IU.
