Player intro: Leland Green

Redondo Beach (Calif.) Redondo Union sophomore point guard Leland Green showed off his skills at the Pangos All-American Camp over the weekend. A 2016 recruit, he still has a few more years until college, but has already been looking at his dream school.

College is still a few years away for 2016 recruit Leland Green, but if he has any say, he would pick up up a cardinal and gold jersey and join the men of Troy.

"My dream school is USC," said Green. "Since third grade, I've always wanted to go to USC. It's a great school."

Green has yet to talk to any of the new coaching staff for the Trojans, but plans on attending their elite camp later this summer.

In the meantime, Green says he's ready to start talking to schools.

"I'm excited to see how far I can go with the recruiting process," said Green."

Before that process starts, however, Green says he wants to continue to develop his game.

"I want to work my way into becoming a point guard," said Green. "Into becoming more of a leader and getting guys involved more."

When Green wants to work on his leadership, he says he looks at Russell Westbrook, his favorite player. Green says he and Westbrook are both very aggressive on defense and fast breaks, a skill Green developed when he was first starting out.

"Since I was younger, I was just aggressive on defense," said Green. "That's the best thing I do."

Green was selected to play in the Top 60 "Cream of the Crop" game at the conclusion of the Pangos All-American Camp.

Overall, Green said he not only enjoyed the camp, but he also learned from the older players.

"It's been good just to play bigger, older, stronger guys," said Green. "I've been watching a few of the guys out here and I've learned a few things."
