Michael Glover's Game Improves Each Week

Scout.com's East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan weighs in on the game of Michael Glover

Michael Glover is a player you love to root for when watching him compete in any type of event. His hard-working, hard-hat mentality can excite any basketball purist who loves to watch players excel at the little aspects of the game.

In the past, this site has published stories on Glover describing him as a junkman. While some may think this isn't a positive reference, it really is a big compliment to the game of Glover. His game is probably not appreciated by many fans who yearn for a long-range jumper or a rim-rattling dunk.

Make no mistake about it, Glover can climb above the rim and did so several times while competing during the recent IS8 Fall League. But his ability to grind and battle and score against bigger bodies is what makes him a pretty special player.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound native of the Bronx enrolled at Boys 2 Men Academy in Chicago, IL last year and reclassified to the class of 2007. Michael previously competed at Nigel Thompson at Monroe Campus High School in the Bronx.

Glover has given a commitment to Seton Hall University. He is a quality recruit and should be a player that provides solid play for the Pirates in the next four years.

Here is a sample of previous scouting reports compiled by this site on the game of Michael Glover:

Brian Towey's Scouting Report: Glover is a little undersized for his position, but he's tough, athletic, and active. Glover will drop down the occasional mid-range jumper, too. He's added some muscle since he's left New York, and is now over 200 pounds.

Mike Sullivan's Scouting Report: Glover is a winner. He gets dirty beneath the rim and never backs away from an inside challenge. His persistence is one of his strong points and it's likely his game will never be fully appreciated.
