This glove has an 11.75 inch length which will make it a really good contender for use on the left side of the infield (i.e. SS and 3B). However, if preferred, it can be used at a number of defensive positions. As well, this glove will be outfitted with soft, yet durable leather that should break in quickly; but also hold up for multiple seasons of use.
If you have interest in this glove for a younger player, I think you'll be in luck. The wrist is set at the larger opening and could fit a high school to adult sized hand. However, we have commonly seen gloves like this R9 get used by 8-14 year old players with great reviews. If you want to get a glove for your player that they can grow into with time, then this glove is an awesome selection.
