Green told WV Sports Now that this offer means a lot to him.
“Getting an offer from West Virginia is big for me,” he said. “West Virginia is one of the only schools outside of my area who’ve offered me so far, so it means a lot to me.”
WVU head coach Bob Huggins and his staff have been interested in Green since he was in the 8th grade. Green will be entering his sophomore season at Guyer High School where he averaged 11.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.2 steals. As a freshman, Green started all 36 games for the Wildcats.
Huggins has been in contact with Green’s camp.
“They [WVU] like my two-way ability and playmaking along with scoring,” Green said.
Green models his game after his favorite NBA player, Ja Morant, as well as all-star Bradley Beal. The rising sophomore uses his athleticism to get to the rim as well as create his own shot.
“I can do a little bit of everything. But I feel like I can be a two-way point guard who’s athletic, makes plays and rebounds at a high level,” Green said.
The 2025 prospect holds offers from Arizona State, George Washington, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Pepperdine, TCU, Texas, Troy and West Virginia. For a freshman in high school to be classified as a 5-star that’s a hard feeling to grasp. For Green, he’s using it as motivation.
“When I first got ranked, it was kinda surreal because I’ve always dreamed about being one. It’s definitely motivation to try and get to that No. 1 spot,” Green said. “I’m looking for a coaching staff that cares and has a good relationship with me, a system that matches my play style, and has a great environment.”
Green tells WV Sports Now that he will not schedule visits until this upcoming school year.
“I haven’t been thinking about scheduling visits yet but in these next couple of weeks I’ll start to plan for some during the school year,” he said.
WV Sports Now will keep up to date with the latest recruiting and transfer portal news during the offseason.
Player Evaluation: The talented 5-star guard can create his own space to get an efficient shot. Green also has great court vision and will look for the best look on the floor, whether it’s him or his teammates. His athleticism separates him from his peers.
