Villanova hoops staff checked in to St. Louis to check out Chaz Glotta

New, comments

Villanova has reportedly expressed some interest in a 2014 shooting guard out of St. Louis

Playing for his father at Fort Zumwalt North High School, junior shooting guard Chaz Glotta has been a leader on the court for the Panthers, averaging 34.7 points over three games at the Winfield Tournament in December. He was named MVP of that tournament and led his team to the title, sinking 13 shots from beyond the arc and connected on 86.4 percent of 22 free-throw attempts.

His production has reportedly caused the Villanova staff to take notice. A tipster informed VUhoops recently that the Wildcats have been checking in on Glotta recently. At this point, it doesn't appear that the program has offered the young sharpshooter, but it is notable that they were spotted taking a look.

The 6-1, 160-pound guard has a lot of range on his shot, making him a danger from deep. He might not have the athleticism that is usually sought out by high major programs, but the Wildcats have a real use for Glotta's skillset.

He scored 505 points as a freshman, which was the 12th-best performance all-time for a freshman from Missouri. He averages 22.3 points per game, playing for his father at Fort Zumwalt.

He probably has the kind of academics that Villanova would want too, sporting a 3.7 GPA at the halfway point of high school.
