Green not leaning towards 'Nova

With one of the top players in Philadelphia’s class of 2011, John Johnson, committing to Pittsburgh last week, what does the picture look like for another prospect from the City of Brotherly Love?

Juan’ya Green, a 6-3 guard from Archbishop Carroll (Pa.), has long been considered a strong Villanova lean. However, Green said he has no favorite at this point.

“Right now my options are kinda open,” he said, “so I have to take a visit on a couple of schools and see what I like.”

Green has a long and varied school list, ranging from the ACC and Big East to the CAA and Atlantic-10. When asked, he named: “Villanova, Maryland, St. Joe’s, Temple, Syracuse, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, George Mason, Indiana, Wisconsin, Notre Dame – that’s all I can think of right now.”

Of those schools, Temple, Maryland, Saint Joseph’s, George Mason and Villanova have offered him.

Green has only taken one visit thus far, to Temple, and does not have anymore planned for the near future.

Although he is not close to making a decision, he knows what he is looking for in a school.

“A good athletic and academic program and a school I know that I’m going to have success in,” he said.
