"It excited me a little bit," Green said. "I was very excited, I can say that. It's high consideration. That was my favorite school (growing up), so I'm putting that into consideration a lot."
The two ACC rivals are among the schools battling for Green. Syracuse has been on him significantly longer, however. They have set a foundation of sorts, led by assistant Gerry McNamara.
"They want me to do the same thing everybody wants me to do," Green said. "They want me to commit early. Syracuse is one of the tops on my list right now. They show love.
"They told me some real stuff about what I need to do and what I need to get better with. And they tell me where I fit in their system."
Up next for Green is a visit to Kentucky on the 29th and 30th.
"Hopefully I get that Kentucky offer," Green said. "Hopefully. But we'll see."
On his visit to Kentucky, Green is looking to get a feel for the program as a whole. That includes the players, coaches and vibe around the school.
As far as when Green will pull the trigger? He says he is looking at a September decision. If the five star point guard does not feel ready at that time, it will be further into his senior season without a definitive timeframe.
Expect Syracuse to continue to recruit Green very hard.
