Cisse was a sculpted warrior when he came in. The 6-foot-7, 205-pound Green may not be as advanced physically, but he's got some of the same shot-blocking ability – and is far more skilled at the same stage.
Green put up impressive numbers as a sophomore last season: 27 points, 15 boards and 8 blocks per contest.
The 16-year-old will still need to develop his jump shot and ballhandling skills, but he's got a chance to be one of the best players in the Class of 2008 in the country.
``I am not sure why I haven't gotten much publicity," Green said. "I think it's because I haven't been to as many big tournaments as they (Xavier Gibson's team) have."
Green, who has a 3.2 GPA, recently attended the Ole Miss camp and also the Nike Jamboree in St. Louis, where he fared well.
He's still not sure if he'll be at the Nike All-American Camp this week, but he will attend the Peach Ham and head to Orlando later this month.
``I'm looking forward to playing up at the nationals with the 17's," Green said. "I just want to make a name for myself."
