The St. John’s basketball program has landed 2024 wing Jaiden Glover. 

The first high school prospect has been added to the 2024 St. John’s basketball recruiting class as Jaiden Glover pledged his allegiance to the Johnnies earlier this week.

Glover, a 4-star wing from The Patrick School (N.J.), joins international prospect Lefteris Liotopoulos in Rick Pitino’s recruiting class for next season.

Seton Hall, Creighton Illinois, Villanova, Providence, Ohio State, and St. Joseph’s were the other schools in the Top-8 finalists for Glover, although he further trimmed that list to St. John’s, St. Joe’s, Seton Hall, and Creighton prior to his announcement.

“I chose St. John’s because of Coach Pitino’s resume and his plans for the future,” the 6-foot-6 wing told On3.

Glover ranks as the No. 56 player in the updated 247Sports Composite rankings and is the No. 4 player coming out of the state of New Jersey.

Pitino also landed highly touted New Jersey prospect Simeon Wilcher this offseason when he was granted his release from his National Letter of Intent to North Carolina

Jaiden Glover began his high school career at Roselle Catholic (N.J.), the same program that produced Wilcher, and the two have the opportunity to reunite in Queens for the 2024-25 season.

St. John’s basketball lands incredible athlete

Jaiden Glover began his high school career as a highly touted athlete — as can be seen in his mid-game windmill dunk — but has developed into more than just a player who can run fast and jump high.

His 3-point shot has greatly improved and his defense, given his quickness on the court, is very underrated.

“I would describe my game as a swiss army knife,” Glover continued to On3.

“I can shoot the ball very well, facilitate, defend very well and finish very well.”

St. John’s recruiting class is currently ranked No. 31 in the country, according to 247Sports, but it does not include Liotopoulos in its rankings.
