Green Impressed by UNC In-home

After an in-home visit tonight with Roy Williams, it appears that all that stands in the way of Danny Green committing to North Carolina is the 6-5 New York native stepping on the Chapel Hill campus.

The St. Mary's guard raved about his in-home with the Tar Heels' head coach and said that he'll almost certainly move his scheduled official visit on Midnight Madness up to the first weekend of October.

"I'm going to try and move it up if I can," Green said. "It'll be hard to turn down North Carolina. I want to check it out first before I make my decision."

Green said that the Tar Heels are the clear leader, but he also mentioned that he enjoyed his visit to Pittsburgh this past weekend.

"It was exciting to watch Roy Williams come in tonight," Green said. "At first, I was shocked and stunned. But after a while, after I started talking to him, he was laid-back and I became comfortable with him."

"He made a great presentation," he added. "He was pretty funny and had a lot of funny things to say."

Both Green and his father, Danny Sr., mentioned that there is a slight chance that he will take an official trip to St. John's, but it's fairly clear that his recruitment could end - if everything goes well - when he takes his official visit to UNC.

Green would join forward Tyler Hansbrough and guards Bobby Frasor and Marcus Ginyard if he commits to the Tar Heels, who are also looking at power forward Richard Hendrix, center Andrew Bynum and swingman Martell Webster for the Class of 2005.
