The bad news for Kennedy is that their opposition is a powerful state school: Alabama. On Tuesday night, JaMychal Green, a 6-foot-8 stud out of Montgomery (Ala.) St. Jude told Scout.com he's down to the Crimson Tide and Rebels.
"Right now it's Alabama and Ole Miss," Green said. "I was planning on staying at home and both are close to home so I narrowed."
Package deals are fun to talk about in recruiting circles and we've seemingly have another on our hands. Green said he and AAU teammate Andrew Steele are going to play together. Steele's brother, of course, is the current Tide point guard.
"We plan on deciding together," Green said. "We talked about it in Florida and narrowed it together and we plan on deciding together."
Alabama is 1 ½ hours from home while Mississippi is a 3-hour jaunt. "I got along with the coaches (at Ole Miss) this summer and they want to help me get there to the next level."
With the Tide, besides the in-state pull which has been powerful the last decade under Mark Gottfried, there are pluses as well. "They have a great facility and I get along with the coaches well. They want to help me out and get me to the next level."
