One of the top uncommitted big men from the class of 2003, center Wesley Green from Eustis (FL) High School has narrowed down his list of favorites to his final two choices and will make his decision after taking his last official visit this weekend.
"I am going to choose between Marquette and DePaul," he said. "They are the last two schools on my list and I will definitely decide between them. Right now I'm pretty open but I should have a clearer picture after visiting DePaul this weekend."
This week Green, who is rated 4-stars and the 11th best center prospect in the nation by RivalsHoops.com, took his fourth official visit of the year to Marquette.
"The trip to Marquette was really great. I think Coach Crean is a really nice and honest guy and they showed me a very good time," Green said. "Everything up there was nice, different than Florida, but I really liked the campus, atmosphere and students."
While on campus for his visit Green, 6-foot-9, 260-pounds, had a chance to meet the players and watch them practice.
"Marquette is a very talented team. In fact they have almost all the tools to make a name for themselves in the near future. I think there is a chance for me to step in early and help them get to the next level," he said. "Also all of the players are really down to earth even their best players are cool. They worked really hard and that was impressive. The coaches also impressed me."
Green indicated that while he had trimmed his list down to his final two choices that it could still be a while before he makes his decision.
"I have not and will not rush my decision. My family and I have a lot riding on me getting a good education or playing in the NBA so I'm really going to think this through," Green said. "I visit DePaul this week and afterwards I'm going to sit down and really think about everything and weigh all of my options with those closest to me and when I feel comfortable I will make my commitment with no second guessing."
Last season Green averaged 18.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per contest.
