One of the fastest rising players in the class of 2003 is Wesley Green from Eustis (FL) High School. Currently eight schools, all of whom have extended scholarship offers, are fighting to receive one of Green’s three remaining official visits.
“I took a visit to Florida State this summer and I have Tennessee coming up,” Green said. “I like South Florida, Indiana, DePaul, Arkansas, Marquette, and South Carolina also but I will have to choose three of those schools to visit. It’s not going to be easy, I have a very tough decision ahead of me.”
During his summer AAU travels with the Orlando Force Green, who is rated a 4-star prospect and the 10th best player in the Southeast by RivalsHoops.com, found the time to visit Tallahassee and check out the Seminoles campus.
“The visit to FSU was alright and I had a nice time,” Green explained. “One of the things I like about FSU is that it is a college town with a lot of young people. The atmosphere is good and it would be easy to have fun there.”
This weekend Green, 6-foot-9, 260-pounds, will take his second official visit when he travels to Knoxville to visit the Tennessee Volunteers.
“Coach (Buzz) Peterson has done a good and creative job of recruiting me. They have sent me a lot of cool stuff and showed me a lot of attention,” he said. “I’ve never visited their school and I am looking forward to this weekend and getting the chance to see everything they have to offer.”
The South Florida, South Carolina, Marquette, and Arkansas staffs have already held in-home visits with Green and expected in the up-coming weeks are Indiana (Tuesday), Tennessee (Thursday) and DePaul (next Tuesday).
“The visits are really going to be important and that will pretty much be how I decided which schools to use my remaining official visits on,” Green said. “Right now I really like all of the schools and don’t have any favorites but I hope that after having a chance to sit down face to face with all of the coaches that I will be able to make the best decision for me.”
Last year Green averaged 18.8 points, 10.8 boards and 3.4 assists per contest. With a 3.0 core GPA he is expected to be a full qualifier.
