After a successful year playing with JH1 Elite, Braden McGlothlin is starting to see his recruitment grow. Several division one programs have started recruiting the 6’1” junior guard of Catholic Memorial High School in Wisconsin. 

Due to a wrist injury, the spring got off to a slow start for McGlothlin as he missed the first three tournaments of the season. After returning, he was able to make an immediate impact for JH1. When talking about the past year, he said “Going into the past travel season I did not have much college interest, but I eventually bounced back and was healthy…Playing on the NY2LA circuit really set myself and my teammates up to be in some big games and play against some great players, which I feel I made the best of every opportunity that was given to me.” With his play on the season, he was able to earn himself honorable mention honors for the 16U level of the NY2LA Association. 

After having limited interest earlier this year, McGlothlin has a long list of schools talking to him. American, Appalachian State, Belmont, Boise State, Miami (OH), South Dakota State, Wright State, are just a few of the schools recruiting him. So far, the junior has visited North Dakota, Southern Illinois Edwardsville, Valparaiso, Western Illinois, Wisconsin-Green Bay, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. 

“Each visit was great and provided me exposure to different campus styles, sizes. I highly appreciated the opportunity to tour the schools and meet and talk with each coaching staff. I really liked the energy and passion each coaching staff showed whether it was during a game or practice,” McGlothlin said about his visits. 

After making a big impact with JH1 over the past several months, he is looking to do the same in his high school season. In his first game of the season, he had eleven points, eight rebounds and four assists in a victory.
