2019 Josh Green Rises to #8 in the USA

The newly released ESPN Top 100 rankings in anticipation for the last leg of the AAU grassroots season, saw consensus five-star Josh Green (IMG Academy) rise to number 8 in the 2019 class. Green, previously number 19 after a dominant junior campaign at IMG Academy and an explosive Spring with West Coast Elite Under Armour 17u UAA, saw an eleven-spot increase that exemplifies his hard work, determination, and competitive nature that he carries day in and day out.

Green has recently seen his recruitment pick-up after averaging over 20 points per game in the Under Armour Association including receiving an offer from defending national champion Villanova University. He has also received increased attention from North Carolina and Kentucky. Green was recently evaluated at the NBA Global Games in Italy where he received glowing feedback about his improved ball skills and decision making.

As Summer closes, Green looks to continue his climb and lead his West Coast Elite Under Armour 17u team to an Under Armour Association championship. Currently, the team is 20-1 after suffering a loss to nationally ranked Team Rio in overtime. Green continues to be one of the most productive, efficient, winning players in the country.
