Green continues to impress evaluators and coaches at our EBA camps. He is rangy athlete that puts us in the mind of Simon Shafack (SE-Illinois CC). However, at the same age Green has an advanced perimeter skill set. He can attack the rim and score the ball off the dribble. The next step for Green will be to add confidence and consistency with his perimeter jumper. When he does that, expect his game to round out with nice balance. Also given Green’s exploits in the classroom, we project him to be an immediate 4-year college recruit out of high school
Once again Green showed his ability to slash with the ball in his hands. His length and athleticism project him to become one of the better wings in the area in years to come. Proving that he can change directions and adding shift with the ball in his hands will allow him to create more in the half-court. Given the strength of his work ethic and the strength of the programs he works with, we expect to see Green continue to add dimensions to his game in upcoming years.
Green was terrific in transition at camp. He was able to get out and run with the best of the prospects here. He looked like true athletic wing who can slash and create off the dribble. That is the strength of his game currently, which is get to the rim and finish at the basket. The key for Green in upcoming months will be to add range to his jumper, which only help him become a more well-rounded threat in future years.
One of the more intriguing prospects at the camp was this local middle school forward. Standing at 6-foot-4 he has length that allows him to rebound and defend on the interior of the defense. However, he showed the ability to play along the arc in this camp setting. He still has to polish his skill set as he did not demonstrate a particular specialty in this brief showing. However, his raw talent was evident in game play.
