Elite point guard, Quade Green, is the newest prospect to join the Kentucky Wildcats for the 2017-2018 NCAA Season. The final decision was announced Saturday night at a Midnight Madness event held at local high school, Neumann Goretti.
The Philadelphia, PA native chose the Kentucky Wildcats over Syracuse, Villanova, and Duke amongst additional suitors. The 6 ft. 1 inch point guard is highly regarded as being the number four point guard in the 2017 class, and the twenty-fifth best overall prospect. Although Syracuse appeared to be the landing spot for Green’s services, Quade loved attending UK’s first open-practice of the year, Big Blue Madness, and was thoroughly impressed with the recruiting success of Kentucky’s program.
Quade’s impressive repertoire will allow him to serve as a strong asset to Kentucky’s newest recruiting class, which already consists of Shai Alexander, Nick Richards, and P.J Washington. The elite versatility and awareness that this point guard possesses on the court is second to none. The Pennsylvania native has a strong shooting percentage, and is highly regarded for draining shots from behind the arc.
To directly complement his ability to make important baskets, Green’s passing skills have drastically improved as of late, averaging 10.5 assists per game during the Nike EYBL Season. The speed, and talented playmaking ability that Green highlights and possesses more than makes up for his lack of size. After committing to Kentucky, Quade plans to heavily recruit one of the most revered power forwards in the nation, Mohamed Bamba, and two additional admirable top- ten recruits, Kevin Knox and Hamidou Diallo, to hopefully join him in Lexington.
This all has emerged rather quickly for Kentucky! It was only two weeks ago when the University of Kentucky was sitting without a signed commit for next season. With the assistance of Quade Green, Shai Alexander, Nick Richards, P.J Washington, and any additional recruits who commit to playing college basketball in the Bluegrass State, the Wildcats will emerge as a top-contender, and will keep their untarnished recruiting reputations alive.
Watch out UCLA and Arizona! The University of Kentucky now has the number one recruiting class in the nation. The strong work of Coach Payne, Coach Barbee, and Coach Justus continues to shine, well beyond the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The Cats faithful continues cheering on UK’s program, and their strong dedication continues shining brightly. Of course, UK’s basketball program would not be where it is today, without the work of highly esteemed Head Coach John Calipari, who has committed an extensive amount of time and effort to allow our program to reach new heights.
With that in mind, let’s focus on the 2016-2017 season, and bring a National Championship back to Kentucky! Let’s go Cats.
