Cardinal Spellman senior Joey Glynn has verbally committed to play basketball at Bentley University this fall.
“I’m very excited this whole process is over,” said Glynn. “[This is] definitely very exciting to me.”
According to Spellman head coach Mike Perry, Bentley offered Glynn a full, four-year scholarship to continue his basketball career with the Falcons.
The 6-foot-5 forward is averaging more than 21 points per game this season for the Cardinals, who are currently 14-4 and third in the Catholic Central League with a 7-3 record.
Last year, Glynn averaged more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game while leading the Cardinals to a 20-5 record and the Division 3 South Sectional title.
Perry thinks that the style of game Glynn likes to play will complement the style of play implemented by Bentley head coach Jay Lawson and the Falcon offense.
“I think it’s a win-win situation for him and for Bentley,” said Perry, “especially considering the type of game they like to play. He’s perfect for them. He’s so unselfish, he’s a very good rebounder, and he can run the floor. At 6-foot-5, he can play numerous positions.
“It’s nice [to coach him] with his size and quickness, and he reacts so well that it's a bonus for us because it’s tough for small guard to guard him. I think for both it’s a win-win.”
Perry stated that Glynn is also excited about the business program that Bentley offers, saying it's "a perfect fit as far as he’s concerned.”
Bentley came out on top over Stonehill, Annapolis, Worcester Poly Tech, and Saint Anselm.
