Green Headed To The Big 12

Jordan Green is headed to the Big 12. The Texas native recently made his collegiate decision.

This time last year Jordan Green didn't have much college interest.

But after a solid sophomore season and an impressive run with the Dallas Heroes, Green, a 6-foot-3 guard, picked up a high major scholarship offer from Texas A&M and on Monday he accepted it.

"I think one of the main reasons was coach [Mark] Turgeon," Cliff Green, Jordan's father, said. "I think him and his staff really showed at their elite camp earlier this summer that they are so professional and they have great facilities. They have terrific academics and a lot of support to the kids that come there."

Green, who is a cousin of Danny Green, started just two games for Lewisville (Tex.) Flower Mound last year, but his play on the AAU circuit picked up.

"This was his first time on the scene," the elder Green said. "We were really shocked. This was his first time playing AAU ball for a major program like the Dallas Heroes."

Utah, SMU, Wichita State, Bradley and Arizona State were among the interested parties, but he felt at home in College Station (Tex.) with Texas A&M and their staff.

Green joins Jamal Branch, of Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep, to make up the Aggies current 2011 recruiting class.
