Even though he is listed amongst the top 65 players in the class of 2008, Jeremy Green doesn't receive a lot of national attention. Not yet, at least.
The four-star shooting guard from Austin (Texas) Bowie High School only helped lead his team to a 33-3 record as a sophomore all the while averaging 16 points, six rebounds and four assists.
Even with a winning résumé and a skill set that is certainly capable of playing at the high-major level, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Texan isn't well known on the national recruiting scene.
He hopes to change that this year. He's been waiting a long time to do so. In Bowie's run through the playoffs, Green injured himself and was forced to watch from the sidelines instead of helping his team advance deeper into the post season.
"Oh man, that drives me to this day," Green said. "I think about it everyday. We were one point away from moving on. I always wonder what if I was in there."
Now with three seniors gone from last year's team, Green is hoping to use the momentum he gained from a strong summer performance in his junior campaign. He said his coach has told him games of 30 or 40 points aren't out of the question.
The attention is starting to come around. Texas's Rick Barnes, Miami's Frank Haith and Baylor's Scott Drew know who he is. All three have been out to see him this fall. So has Florida State, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Texas State and Virginia, Green says. Baylor and Virginia have tendered scholarship offers, Green said, and he recently visited Baylor's campus.
"It was excellent," Green said of his time in Waco. "We toured the campus and watched the team play. That was intense. They have really good guards and they just pushed it all practice."
Green has been to Texas a couple of times in the past and participated in the Longhorns' elite camp over the summer. Green also tripped to Georgetown two weeks ago and got a look at the Hoyas.
"It's all the same right now," Green said. "I'll go to one school and I'll like it a lot. Then I'll go to another school and really like it. I'm trying to just soak it all in."
