On the day he decided to transfer away from Kentucky Green said, “I have loved my time at Kentucky and love Coach Cal and the staff. This was a difficult decision and one I didn’t take lightly,” Green went on to add, “However, after talking with my family and the coaching staff, I just felt like it was best that I explore other opportunities for my athletic and academic future. I have enjoyed my time at Kentucky and I’ll never forget the Big Blue Nation for its love and its support.”
Green appeared in 43 games for the Wildcats over parts of two seasons, averaging 9.0 points and 2.6 assists per game. He was third on the 2017-18 team as a freshman with 41 3-pointers and had made 11 of 26 this season (42.3 percent).
The 6-foot point guard came to Kentucky as a five-star prospect out of Neumann-Goretti High School in Pittsburgh. Green enjoyed a prolific high school career that saw him capture four state championships while earning Pennsylvania Class 3A Player of the Year honors in 2016 and 2017. He was a part of the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championship team that won a gold medal in Chile and participated in the McDonalds All-American Game, the Jordan Brand Classic and was the MVP of the HoopHall Classic.
