High majors show interest in 2014 teammates

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- 2014 teammates -- Trey Grundy and Jordan Green -- have high major programs tracking their play.

During the summer 2014 prospects Trey Grundy and Jordan Green built their reputations playing for Ellis Myles' Louisville Magic.

The two helped the talented squad win the adidas Invitational and the Kentucky Hoopfest, as well as perform well in the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas.

"I liked our squad and I've been playing with them for a while," Grundy told Scout.com. "The coaches are real cool and we just had fun."

"It was probably the best thing I've ever done as far as AAU goes," Green added. "It was one of the more fun things I've done."

Both Grundy and Green reiterated the fact that they got better playing with such a strong group of guys.

"I think I did real well," Grundy said. "If I didn't have that team I'm not sure I would have done so well just because of what we did in practices and all of the college stuff that we did. That's why we were so good."

"The summer went great," Green said. "We did a lot of skill work and got better. We just tried to do our thing."

Now the two teammates are back at Lexington (Ky.) Henry Clay gearing up for their sophomore seasons. As freshman the pair was surrounded by senior leadership and wasn't expected to contribute at a major level.

Green has high major interest
This year will be different. Both will have expanded roles and asked to do much more. And they both appear ready for the challenge.

Grundy, a 6-foot-6 small forward, has built his frame and is clearly spending time in the weight room. During an open gym this week, Grundy showed improvement from a scoring standpoint.

"I'm like an all around player," Grundy said. "I can score, defend and rebound. I can do all those things.

His teammate Green stands 6-foot-4 and plays the two-guard spot. Although not as built as Grundy, Green has a wiry frame and is a guy that scores it well, especially from mid-range.

Although workouts just started, a handful of college coaches have already been in to see them play. Illinois and Tennessee were in the gym on Monday, while Xavier and Indiana watched workouts on Tuesday.

"It's going real good," Green said of his recruitment. "More schools are starting to show more interest."

Grundy listed Xavier, Tennessee, Indiana, Purdue, Louisville and Illinois, while Green said he's received interest from those six plus South Carolina.

Both talented 2014 prospects have taken unofficial visits to Xavier, Tennessee, Indiana, Purdue and Louisville.
