Brannen Greene and his did made the drive from Forsyth to Durham Sunday for a two day unofficial visit to Duke. "It was a good experience. I enjoyed it all, including scrimmaging with the varsity players Sunday night and getting a tour of the campus by Coach K." Greene, however, left Durham without an offer.
Receiving offers is not a problem for the rising junior. He's already received double digit offers. "I have offers from Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Marquette, Florida, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Seton Hall and Providence. I think that's all of them."
While he doesn't currently have any favorites, there are a few schools that Greene feels are recruiting him harder than the others. " Maybe Duke and Memphis. Louisville, Florida and Kentucky have been calling lately."
Greene made a recent unofficial visit to in-state school Georgia Tech. He came away with some good impressions of the new coaching staff and had a chance to find out some new things about the campus. " I met Coach (Brian) Gregory and Coach (Chad) Dollar and I like the coaching staff. The campus was a bit more spread out than I thought…I liked that." Greene has also visited Alabama and North Carolina.
The Greenes are making a return trip to Georgia Tech. "We'll be at Georgia Tech Tuesday and Wednesday for our third unofficial visit. Greene also has visits planned to Alabama, Florida and Louisville.
There will be a lot of schools to choose from when Greene makes his college choice. He has an idea of what he'll be looking for when he makes that choice. "I'll look at the school's tradition, their academic standing, and their style of play."
Greene is not looking to cut his list until he completes his junior year. "My dad will help me with that.
A busy summer is scheduled for Brannen. " I play for the Atlanta Celtics (AAU) and I've been invited to the Adidas Invitational in Indiana in early July and then the Adidas 64 in Las Vegas.
The 2013 recruit continues to grow as his basketball career progresses. "I'm 6-7 and 197 now and my doctor tells me I have some more room to grow."
