The three schools he was in constant contact with include Clemson, South Carolina, and Georgetown. He is originally from South Carolina and has already been part of two unofficial teams in both teams in his home state, and also took the official with him to Georgetown.

He discussed each of his visits and the current state of his recruitment with each of the grooms with 247Sports.

Clemson: “I like it, it’s close to home, it’s a small town, a small community that I like. The way they play now is the pinnacle of ACC. They need to be ranked, their guards are after them. they really like it.”

Georgetown: “Despite the difficult season, they keep in touch there. Coach Nickelberry and Coach Ewing, I talk to them a lot. The visit was pleasant. When I’m coaching a game, it’s always good to be surrounded by guys who love basketball.”

South Carolina: “Hometown, so they will always have a place in my heart as a hometown team. Coach Paris is a great coach, he lets his players play, he’s a laid-back personality, a laid-back coach, he helps them when he needs to. , he hits the GG [Jackson]. South Carolina is a good place and he needs another year to get his players together and show what he can do.”

Green has no scheduled visits right now as he remains focused on the season, but when his season is over he will have three schools on his mind that he would like to visit.

“I’d like to pay an official visit to Clemson, maybe Ole Miss and Pitt,” Greene said.

He also shared his thoughts and why he would like to be on the Ole Miss and Pittsburgh campus.

Ole Miss: “They let their defenders play, they are a defensively oriented team. They use a two-back system and the way I play with speed, I really like it.”

Pittsburgh: “I didn’t watch them much, but I watched them in the Clemson game. It’s a tough team, and Coach Capel was a point guard at Duke, so it’s always good to have your coach playing in your position.”

Green remains patient in his recruitment. He told 247Sports he expects a big summer so a decision won’t be made anytime soon.

“Probably I’m thinking about the AAU. I don’t want to rush into anything,” he said.

Green is 105th overall in the class of 2024.
