Green knows what he wants

Leland Green is one of the top guards out west in 2016. Read on to see what he is looking for in a school, what Arizona's interest has been like, and more.

Still incredibly young, Redondo Beach (Calif.) Union 2016 guard Leland Green went into the summer evaluation period on a mission.

"I had a plan going into this summer and I was able to mostly do everything I set out to do," Green said. "I wanted to show everybody that I can handle the ball and get my mid-range shot and some other things."

Green's play has gotten him more attention and coaches have let him know the aspects of his game that they like.

"I still need to get more consistent shooting, but it's getting better and I think a lot of coaches saw that," Green said.

"The other part that coaches liked was my defense. I made an effort to try and go out there every possession and really hound my guy."

This attention to detail has caused Green's recruitment to pick up a bit.

"I've been getting a lot more interest lately," Green said. "Florida, Villanova, Arizona and ASU are some of them. Schools like Arizona have let me know that they like my game and are watching me, from the letters I get.

"I've gotten offers from San Francisco, Northern Arizona and UNLV. It's a good feeling to know I already have some options and I'm happy about it."

While Green is still figuring out his recruiting situation, he knows the attributes he is looking for in a school, but has no time frame for a decision.

"I want to go to a place where the players get along with the coach and they like to get out and run, because that's what I think I'm best at," Green said.

"I honestly have no clue when I would like to decide by. I'm still young and I'm still trying to figure out the schools that really like me."
