Yavapai Junior College (10-7, 4-3) has been back on the rise this season behind the leadership of Kevon Davis. Yavapai has currently won three games in a row on the season, including consecutive blowout wins over Phoenix College (76-53) and Glendale Junior College (97-73). The program is now filled with numerous prospects that college programs at different levels need to take a hard look at. 6-foot-3 sophomore guard Ray Glasgow has led this year's team, and looks to be the best prospect in the program. Glasgow is having a nice sophomore season for himself, and has become a nice recruiting target for four-year college programs to pursue this spring.
Glasgow is a native of the Bronx, New York, where he graduated from Monsignor Scanlan High School in 2021. He averaged 22 points, 5.9 rebounds and five assists per game during his senior year at Monsignor Scanlan. He was also named First-Team All-CHSAA Conference in 2021 and was a McDonald’s All-American Nominee. He previously attended Benedict College and Seward County Community College, before landing at Yavapai with Coach Davis, who brought him with him from Seward after taking the Yavapai job.
Glasgow has been among the league leaders in the ACCAC this season in scoring, ranking 4th in scoring the conference - averaging 21.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists, while shooting 51% from the field. He has played strong in numerous big wins by Yavapai already this season, including a huge opening season victory over on the road at College of Southern Idaho, where he finished with a game-high 25 points in the win.
Glasgow is regarded as one of the top scorers in the country in the NJCAA ranks and is now one of the better prospects in the country for four-year college programs looking for an athletic scorer. He is a nice talent with an excellent ability to handle the ball and create his own shot. He is a Bradley Beal-type (Phoenix Suns) with similar size and skillset. He is a very good shooter with excellent range and has a scorer's mentality. Glasgow also like to pass the ball to the open man on the floor, and so he can create for himself and others - a very nice attribute that he possesses. He is a competitor also that plays to win.
Glasgow is currently receiving nice recruiting interest this season from college programs all over the board, according to Yavapai Head Coach Kevon Davis. Although he has yet to receive his first offer, he is very well deserving of serious recruiting interest this spring, and is one of the top recruiting targets among junior college prospects in the West.
Glagow will look to continue to have a strong sophomore season for Yavapai, as the Roughriders look to continue to battle their way to the top of the Division-I standings, as they currently are in 3rd place behind Eastern Arizona and Arizona Western JC. I will continue to follow his college recruitment closely this junior college season.
