Vols Next Up For Green

Eustis (FL) High's Wesley Green is starting to focus his recruitment down. This week and next are busy in-home weeks for the center.

Plenty Spend Time With Green

Wesley Green conducted in-home visits this week with South Florida, Marquette and South Carolina. Indiana comes into his home on Monday, DePaul next Wednesday and Tennessee on Thursday.

Yesterday, the Volunteers were in town watching him workout.

So far, Green has officially visited just one school: Florida State. He's scheduled to trip to Tennessee the weekend of Sept. 20. "After that me and my mom will sit down and discuss those other three visits."

Miami, Penn State and Texas Tech are also showing considerable interest.

In the midst of all the hoopla, Green elects to focus on his education. "We know the ball can stop bouncing any minute so I'm looking for school, basketball and education. I want them to market me well too."

Green talks about being marketed by a school because he still feels slighted that he was passed over for one of the major shoe camps last July. The omission, he says, motivates him still. However, nothing motivates him like a January match up with Florida recruit Chris Richard.

Already, Green's mind wanders daily to the battle on Jan. 25 with Lakeland Kathleen and the higher rated Richard. "If you don't know how to get there you can call my house and my mom will give you directions. That's how important it is to us."
