Green Enjoys Official Visit

Nobody is going to blame Danny Green for being just a little bit nervous for his official visit to Chapel Hill. Sure, the 6-5 wing guard from Manhasset (N.Y.) St. Mary's had been on the UNC campus before, but he'd never explored it in detail and he had never been there as a member of the Carolina family.

"Yeah, I was a little bit nervous before the trip started," Green said. "I was nervous about how the players would react to me and because of Midnight Madness. Mostly I was just anxious to get there and see it all."

Once he got there, Green said he knew that he had made the right decision for himself and the nervous energy turned to excitement in a hurry.

"I've been there a couple of times for tournaments and it was nice, but it was crazy this time and the fans were great," said Green. "I was so excited, I wanted to get to play, I couldn't wait to play next year, now I can't wait to get there. The skits and everything were the best part."

After taking in Late Night festivities, Green admitted that he's even started thinking about what type of performance he'll want to give next year as a freshman.

More importantly, the trip gave him a chance to spend time with his future teammates and some fellow recruits. According to Green, he fit in very nicely and one current Heel in particular surprised him.

"I hung out with Raymond Felton, Sean May and Marvin Williams and they were all really cool," said Green. "Sean May is really funny and he does a lot of really goofy things to loosen you up. Everybody was nice, but he was really sociable."

As for the time he spent with other members of his recruiting class like Bobby Frasor and Marcus Ginyard, it went smoothly as well.

"I spent a lot of time with them, basically the whole weekend even though Marcus had to leave after a day because he was on an unofficial visit," said Green. "I got along really well with them and am looking forward to playing with them next year."

Of course, there was another very important official visitor in Chapel Hill and Green did his best to let 6-11 big man Andrew Bynum know that he could be the final piece to a great class.

"I was with him most of the time and it seemed like he was having fun and really liked it," finished Green. "Seems like it will be either UNC or UConn and I did my best to get him to come with me."
