A rare junior college signee for a Penn State program that has had just five in the last decade, Glover is a big athletic guard who is expected to make an immediate contribution in the line-up and compete for a starting spot in the Lion backcourt. He demonstrated tremendous physical stamina and strength in early testing with strength coach Brad Pantall and possesses a Big Ten ready body. A point-guard in high school in California, he slid over to the two in one season at Sheridan Community College (Wy.) and shot 48 percent from the floor. He will be looked toward for scoring and a perimeter defensive presence for the Nittany Lions and brings three years of eligibility to Penn State.

"Matt Glover is a very tough kid and good shooter. He loves to play and is always working on his game. I look for him to make a significant contribution to our program."
- Patrick Chambers
