Green, who already took official visits to both Memphis and Florida State last fall, is scheduled to announce his college decision on Dec. 25. He has also been rumored to be considering skipping college to pursue potential professional opportunities.

Playing for Team Why Not, Green averaged 18.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals during his first season on the Nike EYBL circuit, helping lead his team to a berth in the Peach Jam finals, after which he was named one of the top performers of the July evaluation period by 247Sports.

"Green is one of the nation’s top prospects regardless of class due to his size, length, athleticism and versatile skill set, all of which he showed this week competing with Team WhyNot at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam. Green is tremendous in transition and as a slasher due to his physical tools and finishing ability, while he is also a capable shooter, slasher, passer and versatile defender. Green has a very high floor to match a significant ceiling."

After suiting up for for Team Why Not, Green teamed up with fellow 5-star guard Joshua Christopher for Vegas Elite at the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas in late July, going a perfect 6-0 on its way to the tourney championship, winning its games by an average of 16.1 points.

Memphis currently represents four of the six predictions on Green's 247Sports Crystal Ball.
