Four-star guard Josh Green in no rush

Josh Green is one of the top prospects in the west for 2019. Read on for an update on his recruitment, including his thoughts on Arizona.

Mesa (Ariz.) Hillcrest Prep wing Josh Green is one of the fastest rising prospects in the west in 2019, yet he continues to work hard to improve his game.

“I have been trying to progress a lot and become more versatile,” Green said. “I have been working on playing the point guard and shooting guard, so I think that has helped my game a lot.”

Green is hearing from schools throughout the country, but is choosing not to get too caught up with his recruitment as of now.

“Every school I talk to seems great,” Green said. “I have not really been focusing on it though because I want to focus on my game and make sure I am ready to play on that level.”

The four-star Australian native has visited Arizona before and came away impressed with the experience.

“Arizona is a great school with a great coaching staff,” he said. “I have been down there before and Arizona has a great environment also. It’s just a great school overall.”

In addition, Green is familiar with the Arizona program for another reason. 

“I played with DeAndre Ayton last year,” Green said. “It really helped my game out, especially with the pick and roll game. I learned so much playing with him.”

As Green goes throughout the process, he has a good idea of what he is looking for in a school.

“I am going to be looking for a school where I am going to have an impact right away and one that has a staff that is going to want to stay there for a long time, so I don’t have to worry about it changing,” he said.

Again though, Green is in no rush to make a decision.

“I don’t have any plans to see any visits and I really have not thought about making any type of decision or anything like that,” he said.
