Interest coming in for Green

A productive forward, Sam Green is pulling in significant high-major interest.

At Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara, class of 2016 power forward Sam Green is the main attraction. The 6-foot-6 and 210 pound Green was very productive at the DMV Tip-Off Classic, and college coaches are beginning to show more and more interest in his game.

This season hasn't started off how Bishop McNamara has wanted, but the young roster is coming around, especially Green. Always someone who has played on the low block, Green says his goal as a sophomore is to become a more complete player.

"I have been working on my shot mainly," said Green. "Also I am working on my dribbling skills. I know at 6-foot-6 I can't be a center, so I have to expand my game and be able to play different positions. I think I am doing well at it, but I know I have room to improve."

Recruiting wise it is still early for Green, but he is getting his share of high-major attention.

"I know Miami, Maryland, Rutgers, Cincinnati, Xavier, and a few other schools are interested in," said Green.

He continued, "I have gotten to visit a couple schools and that is pretty fun. I have seen Rutgers, Cincinnati, and Xavier."

Rutgers has been very successful recruiting the Washington DC area recently, and Green says he likes what he is hearing from them.

"They have LeRoy Butts committed and he told me he liked it a lot when he visited," explained. "I think it is nice and they have a good program."

Crosstown rivals Xavier and Cincinnati had Green on campus over the summer, and each school made a positive impression.

About Xavier, Green said, "It was a nice school. I went up there with my DC Assault team, and we saw the campus which I liked. I had a good time there."

He said about the Bearcats, "We just saw the arena at Cincinnati and it was real nice. Also we talked to the coaches and a few of the players. I liked Cincinnati."

It is still the early stages of his recruitment, so no decision is expected soon, but Green says he has a good idea of what he will look for in a school.

"I just want a team that outside of basketball can feel like a family," noted Green. "I also like a team that is unselfish and distributes the ball."

Green is currently considered a three-star prospect.
