There’s no doubt we’ll be seeing some of South Florida’s best basketball players on national television for years to come.
Even as rising juniors, three of the hometown stars have received national exposure, landing on the newly updated ESPN 60 list for the top recruits in the Class of 2022.
Jett Howard: University School
ESPN 60 Rank: No. 37
The 6-foot-7 guard comes off of an excellent sophomore season in which he averaged 15.6 points and 3.7 rebounds for the 19-7 Sharks.
Howard will be transferring to IMG Academy for his junior season joining five-stars Brandon-Huntley-Hatfield and Jarace Walker.
Gregg Glenn: Calvary Christian
ESPN 60 Rank: No. 38
Immediately following Howard is his Nightrydas Elite teammate, Greg Glenn.
Gregg Glenn has been a dominant South Florida big for a couple of years now, being ranked as high as No. 18 at one point by ESPN.
The 6-foot-7 sophomore led the Eagles to a 21-8 record, averaging 14.6 points, 2.3 assists, and six rebounds a night.
Besides being a South Florida star, Glenn’s impressive freshman campaign earned him a spot on the 2019 USA U16 National Team, who totaled a 6-0 record en route to a gold medal.
Malik Reneau: Mater Academy
ESPN 60 Rank: No. 48
Mater Academy’s Malik Reneau proved many to be without a doubt, the most talented young player in Dade-County. Reneau averaged 21 points and 11 rebounds, leading Mater to a 25-5 record and a 6A District 16 Championship.
One of Reneau’s top performances this season was at the City of Palms Classic, where he proved he could play with the nation’s best. The Mater Academy forward’s ball-handling and size put’s him on radars all over the country.
Despite having their season cut short by Dillard in the Regional Finals, Reneau and Mater were the most impressive squad out of Miami in the 2019-20 season. The 6-foot-7 sophomore provided more than an enough to earn a spot on the 305Sports All-Dade 1st Team.
Reneau planned on joining Howard and Glenn on Nightrydas Elite this summer.
