UNC Contacting Greene

North Carolina evaluated Brannen Greene over the summer and now the Tar Heels are beginning to make contact with the 2013 prospect.

"My dad has been talking to them recently," Greene confirmed.

"I'm not even sure [how it started]," he said. "In Indianapolis, I know they were at every single one of my games there, but I didn't see them anymore the rest of July. But they called and said what they liked from Indianapolis."

Greene, a 6-5 wing scorer at Forsyth (Ga.) Mary Persons, said his father has handled all of the phone calls recently, including the calls with the North Carolina staff.

"It's really just been my dad," Greene said about the conversations with schools. "I usually just let him take my phone calls. The only way I talk to them is if they really want to talk to me."

"I've been so busy not being home," he said. "They talked to him about my versatility and my ability to handle the ball."

Greene, who ranks No. 22 overall in the 2013 class, said he keeps up with North Carolina and like Tar Heels' their style of play.

"I watch them play all the time and obviously Roy Williams is a great coach so I'm happy they started recruiting me and stuff like that," Greene said.

"They are a great program and I like the way they play too," he added. "Their coach lets them get out and run and take open shots. That's what I like about the program."

Throughout the recruiting process, Greene has taken a number of unofficial visits. While nothing has been set up, Greene said it wouldn't be a surprise to visit Chapel Hill.

"Probably so," he said when asked about a visit. "That's probably something my dad wants to do. He likes to take visits, so we probably will."

Recently Greene narrowed his list of schools to nine -- Connecticut, Florida, Florida State, Harvard, Kansas, Louisville, Memphis, Ohio State and Providence. Have the Tar Heels made their way on to his list?

"As of right now, no," Greene said. "But I'm still kind of open. I know I narrowed down my list and all, but I'm still kind of open. Those are my top nine. Those are the ones that I'm looking at. If I like North Carolina enough and my dad thinks I need to add them, then I'll add them to my list. That's something I'll look into."
