Greene Adjusting On The Fly

Brannen Greene is playing for a new AAU club this week while trying to earn more offers.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The phrase "blowing up" is often used in recruiting terminology to describe when a player finally gets discovered by a litany of big-time programs. As a class of 2013 prospect, and Georgia-native, Brannen Greene officially, and literally blew up on June 15th, when coaches from around the country began calling him.

"Man, there were so many calls," Greene said with a smile. "Once 12 (a.m.) hit, I got about 10 calls that night and I missed some calls because I went to sleep at 2:30 (a.m.). I woke up nine and I had already missed about 15 calls. And I was switching over and saying, ‘Coach I'll call you right back. Coach I'll call you right back.'"

Those phone calls have led to a slew of offers, as Greene claims offers from Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis and Tennessee.

Green has also recently received calls from Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA, UConn and Michigan State.

TDD was in attendance for Greene's first game of the July live period, as Brannen recently switched from the Southern Kings to the Atlanta Celtics 16's.

"I'm kind of adjusting. I don't know the plays, I don't know how people play. So it's kinda tough, but I'm sure I'll snap into it and adjust," Greene said of his new team. "They just want me to come in and score the ball. In Vegas I'll probably be playing 17's as well."

Greene played in front of all three Duke coaches assigned to the road on Wednesday, which included Coach K, Jeff Capel and Steve Wojciechowski. Other high-major programs also assigned coaches to the Celtics' 16's team, but Brannen didn't seem phased by the new attention.

"I played in front of them last year because we had other big-time players, so I'm used to it," Greene said. "I know what they look like."
