"I love the coaching staff there," Green said. "They were up front and honest with me and they told me the situation."
Green's ready for his role on the Gators and he's keeping it simple. "Just to go in play my game and just run the team and work hard. That's basically my job. Our goal is to win championships."
The guard's basketball pedigree is a good one. His father Sidney was a pro and is now the head coach at Florida Atlantic. So, that begs the question: will father get to coach against his son?
"No. Not a chance," the eldest Green joked.
While dad isn't quite ready to schedule the Gators again, he is quick with the praise for Donovan and his staff. "I wanted him to look at all his options. His ultimate goal was to play for an upcoming program with a great coach. Coach Donovan fit all the qualities that he and his mother and I wanted in a coach.
"Taurean feels good about this situation. He really likes [Donovan] and he's been up front and honest with him from day one."
And while dad couldn't be happier about his son's choice, Taurean is relieved to see the process end. "I'm going to feel more relaxed on the circuit. I won't have to be kicking myself in the head if I have a bad game."
At 21 points and 9 assists a game as a junior at IMG, the bad games were few and far between.
