Draymond Green, a 6-foot-6 power forward out of Saginaw (Mich.) High is going to play in the Big Ten. Where Scout.com's No. 72 player winds up, well, that'll have to wait until later this week.
"I really know where I want to be. I'm just ready to go and get it over with."
Green is playing poker all week long. He says he hasn't informed the staffs of his decision and won't until Thursday. A bad ankle sprain kept him out of action last week at the NBA Players Camp. He should be ready for the July run; he's taking the precautions – ice and elevation – to make that happen.
As for the programs remaining, Green spoke briefly about each.
The Hoosiers were up first.
"I like the way the coaching staff presented the program," Green said. "It's a good bunch of guys and overall it's a great school academic wise and basketball."
Next up were the crews from Ann Arbor and East Lansing. The Wolverines made him a priority once the new staff was in place.
"I like how Coach Beilein, as soon as he came in started recruiting me. It's a great school. I think coach is going to rebuild that program. I'm close with the guys on the coaching staff."
The Spartans wouldn't mind paring him up with Delvon Roe and many feel they are the team to beat. "Their coaching staff … I like them all. I'm cool with all their players. It's a great school too.
"I think I would fit in at all three of them."
But, he can only pick one and we'll know the outcome later in the week."
Green said he has no plans to visit any more programs this week. We've heard talk of jaunt to Ohio State sometime this week but Green told Scout.com the Buckeyes are not in the mix and he won't be visiting this week.
