NBPA Top 100: Quade Green

Point guard Quade Green is one of the top floor generals in the class of 2017 and his phone has been ringing quite a bit recently.

Unfortunately for class of 2017 point guard Quade Green he isn’t able to participate in the NBPA Top 100 Camp due to injury. The native of the city of Brotherly Love got hurt over Memorial Day, but he is still taking the time to see his surroundings and get a gauge on his abilities by being at the camp.

“Being here gives me a chance to look at my competition,” said Green. “I can see what they do well and compare it to what I do well, and see their weaknesses and what I need to improve on.”

While the spring ended with injury, overall Green says it went well.

“My spring went great,” noted Green. “The coaches, players, team, it went great. I just had a fun time, and that is all I can ask for.”

Recruiting wise colleges could first begin reaching out to Green on June 15, and since then his phone has been extremely busy.

Arizona State, Villanova, Temple, Providence, Maryland, Missouri, South Carolina, Wake Forest, Xavier, and some others,” noted Green. “A lot of schools have been calling.”

Recently Green made a visit down to Maryland, and he came away impressed with what he saw.

“Maryland’s campus is really good. I got to meet the players and I really talked to Diamond Stone. He was talking to me about Maryland, and also I talked with the coaches. I spoke with Coach Bino (Ranson) and Coach (Mark) Turgeon and just had a good time.”

One school that has been recruiting Green for a while and is close to home is Villanova. The Wildcats have made sure to make green a priority.

“I like their style of play,” said Green of Villanova. “I love how they use their guards. They also have a great coaching staff. Coach (Jay) Wright is a great coach and Coach Ash (Howard) is a good person as well. I love how they make their team play defense.”

A new school on the list is Arizona State, and coach Bobby Hurley and his staff are making it clear they want a point guard like Green.

“I talked to Coach Brian (Merritt) and he is a good guy,” said Green. “Coach Hurley was a good point guard and I know they help develop point guards. They just help take guys to the next level so it is a school I’m interested in for sure.”

For now there is absolutely no hurry for Green to make a decision, but he does know the factors that he is paying attention to in a school.

“I am looking for a good school that will give me a good education,” said Green. “Also basketball wise I am looking for a place that can offer playing time and a place that everyone just feels like a family.”
