2016 guard Devonte Green commits to Indiana

Indiana picked up its fourth commit in the 2016 class with combo guard Devonte Green. Get the full story here.

Indiana picked up its fourth commitment in the 2016 class on Saturday when Long Island guard Devonte Green announced he would be a Hoosier. 

Green, the younger brother of San Antonio Spurs' guard Danny Green, is a 6-foot-1 combo guard. He's rated as a 3-star prospect, but I watched him quite a bit on the adidas circuit, and I've always thought he was underrated.

Green played on the same AAU team with 5-star prospects Rawle Alkins and Mustapha Heron, so he flew under the radar a little bit. But he's a typical Tom Crean recruit, one in the same mold as guys like Victor Oladipo, Will Sheehey and OG Anunoby. Fans will likely question his commitment early, but I think fans will like him before he's done playing in Bloomington.

Green always plays hard, he's skilled, and the fact he's been overshadowed by better players in high school -- much like Oladipo was -- will likely leave a chip on his shoulder that will contribute to his development. 

Green joins Curtis Jones, De'Ron Davis and Grant Gelon in the 2016 class.
