Rebels Land First Commitment for 2017

Rebels Land AZ Prep Star.

Jay Green became the first player to commit to Marvin Menzies and the UNLV Runnin' Rebels out of the class of 2017 earlier today. Green, an Australian product by way of Hill Crest Prep in Arizona is listed at 6'5 and can play either guard spot. Other schools showing interest in Green were Oregon, Creighton, New Mexico and Cleveland State

The versatile lefty is strong in the open floor and is a gifted ball handler and distributor. Green is also deft at attacking passing lanes on defense and is an above average rebounding guard. On top of all that he also has a GPA of 4.0 and scored an 1800 on his SAT's. 

Green isn't listed among the elite in his class. I was only able to find a 2 star rating, but it looks like Menzies might have landed himself a high IQ, diamond in the rough.
