Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment
Player: Mike Green
Committed to: South Carolina
What the Player Said:
Q: What has the coaching staff at South Carolina been saying to you?
Green: They have been telling me they need someone who will space the floor and hit timely shots for them.
Q: What made South Carolina the place for you?
Green: It is only about two and a half hours from home and the coaching staff really believes that I can come in and make a difference with my shooting ability early.
Stats Last Season:
Green finished his career in a big way at Christian Academy, as he averaged 26.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 3.1 steals per game. He ended shooting 59% from the floor and 54% from three, knocking down 120 three’s last season. Playing on varsity as an eighth grader, Green finishes his career shooting 43% from three and knocking down 380 three’s.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“Green is an incredibly skilled and fundamental player. He has great vision and he really shoots the cover off the ball. Green has played at the highest level through travel ball and in state championships in school ball. It’s about the time the offers start coming, Green makes the team better.” – Jamie Shaw
“Mike Green will always bring consistency and a workmanlike approach to the game. Green simply knows the game. He is one of the more fundamentally sound player and has an advanced basketball IQ. More importantly, we’ve been impressed over the years and again this weekend with the degree of competitiveness he brings to the game. To put it simply, he is a true competitor and values winning. While Green is an effective 3-level scorer, he brings so much value with his unlimited intangibles and attributes. Green finished with 21 points including five 3-pointers and a perfect 6-6 from the free throw line.” – Rick Lewis, Porter Gaud Holiday Classic in 2018
“Green is one of the more versatile lead guards in the region largely due to an incredible basketball IQ and a well-rounded skillset. He’s not going to blow you away with any one area in particular, but he’s incredibly well rounded with the way he attacks a defense, using his teammates to create offense in such a methodical fashion.” – Phenom Summer Jam in 2018
