Green's coach with the New York Panthers, Gary Charles, reached while on vacation, said he was unaware of the offer – but didn't rule it out.
"He's supposed to go on an official visits at some point to North Carolina," Charles said. "Roy Williams was at every one of his games until he left for the Olympic team. After that, Steve Robinson was there."
"Maybe they offered in the past couple days," added Charles. "I know they want to set up an official and an in-home visit, so it wouldn't surprise me – especially the way he played in July."
Green would give the Tar Heels some flexibility and versatility, joining Marcus Ginyard and Bobby Frasor. Green averaged 18 points per game, has great court vision, is a quality defender and scores in a variety of ways. He was so impressive at the 2004 ABCD Camp that he was named co-MVP.
According to Charles, UNC, St. John's and Pittsburgh are the current leaders.
"The academics are important, but he wants to make sure as far as on the court, the campus life and what are his opportunities once he gets there," Green Sr. said. "He doesn't have to be a starter, but he has to have the opportunity to play. Also, the alumni. We ask questions a lot about that. When he graduates, we want to know the job opportunities out of college. Tradition doesn't hurt either."
