ND Prep's Glaze requests release from UNLV

April, 22, 2011
The Las Vegas Sun reported yesterday that Notre Dame Prep forward Grandy Glaze has requested a release from the letter of intent he signed with UNLV.

Glaze, a native of Brampton, Ont., inked with the Rebels and former head coach Lon Kruger. Kruger left to take the Oklahoma job earlier this month.

"I think he just thought about it, regarding the coaches that recruited him originally, and he's pretty close to them and they left," his AAU coach Mike George told the paper. "The new coach hasn't had a chance to see him, so it might be better to move on, go through it all again. I think he just wants to open it up, make sure he's comfortable with the coaches in place."

George went on to say that Glaze would still consider the Rebels and new head coach Dave Rice. The paper also reported that Rice would grant his request and release him.

Top coaches take in STM's upset of Brewster

February, 17, 2011
ESPN's Adam Finkelstein writes on his recruiting blog today about some of the premier high-major Division 1 coaches on hand to take in St. Thomas More's 78-64 win over previously-unbeaten Brewster Academy on Tuesday night. West Virginia's Bob Huggins, Florida's Billy Donovan, and Iowa's Fran McCaffery were some of the most prominent names on hand to watch the nation's No. 1 junior, Andre Drummond, as well as Brewster's two uncommitted high-major recruits Elijah Carter and Mitch McGary.

The Chancellors' win over Brewster snaps the Bobcats' 31-game winning streak, dating back to last season when they beat Winchendon for the NEPSAC Class A title.

Finkelstein writes:

Huggins has been no stranger to the St. Thomas More gym in recent years, having landed both Devin Ebanks and Danny Jennings out of the Connecticut prep school while his latest target is Andre Drummond, the nation's top ranked junior, who, despite reports to the contrary, has not named a list or discussed any specific schools in his recruiting.

He also adds:

As for Donovan, while he would undoubtedly like a chance to land Drummond, the more likely target is Brewster Academy's 2012 big man Mitch McGary, who named Florida among his nine favorites just a week ago.

For McCaffery, the trip was most likely focused around Brewster's post-graduate guard Elijah Carter who had recently named the Hawkeyes among his current list of offers that also included Georgia Tech (who was represented with an assistant coach), Wake Forest, Oklahoma, Oregon State, South Florida, and Rhode Island.
