Gonzaga senior Charles Glover committed to Mount St. Mary’s on Monday. The 6-1, 170-pound guard played a key role in the Eagles becoming just the third school to go undefeated in Washington Catholic Athletic Conference regular-season play, averaging 11.1 points and often guarding the opponent’s best perimeter player.

A knee sprain during his junior season and a tough outing on the AAU circuit this past summer left Glover under the radar. But after elevating his play this season following the transfer of point guard Nate Britt to Oak Hill Academy in the summer, Glover gained interest from the Mountaineers as well as Marist, New Hampshire, St. Francis and Siena.

“His ability to lead by example, play at a couple different positions and guard one of the other teams best players night in and night out, along with being one of our top scorers, are what make him so valuable,” Eagles Coach Steve Turner said. “Sometimes, the things he does don’t show up in the box score, like diving for the loose ball or making hustle plays, but that’s how Chuck gets it done out on the floor.”

Check back in tomorrow morning’s Letters of Interest for more on Glover’s commitment.
