UCONN Picks Up Pace With Danny Green

The Connecticut staff seems to becoming more interested in Danny Green

Danny Green, a versatile 6-foot-5 guard/forward from St. Mary's High School in Manhasset, New York, stated he will likely take three official visits before making a decision.

"I am already visiting Pittsburgh and North Carolina," Green said. "But I want to take a visit to either Georgia Tech, Connecticut, or St. John's. I have seen St. John's several times so I may not take an official visit there."

The interesting news is that the Connecticut basketball program has picked up the recruiting pace of Green. "I heard from Connecticut last night," Green said. "They said they like me a lot and didn't think I was as athletic as I am. So I could take a visit there."

Green, who sprained his right wrist in his second game at the Five Star camp last week in Honesdale, Connecticut, continued to play at the event. "I just used my left hand more," he said.

Green was one of the co-MVPs of the Reebok ABCD camp in early July. He has the skills to drop down three-pointers, run a transition as a lead guard, or create mismatches with his size. Green played this past summer for Gary Charles' Long Island Panthers.
