Thanks everyone for the helpful information. Your comments are exactly what I was looking for. His old glove is an 11.5. I'm looking to stay under $300. I was hoping to order something today so Santa Claus could bring it but based on your advice, when he gets home from school on Monday, we will go to Dick's and try on a few and then order online. He'll probably say the $25 faux leather glove feels best. I think I will have his old glove restrung also as a backup.
