Taking a look at 2017 Maryland basketball target Quade Green

We take a look at the Philadelphia point guard and what he could bring to Maryland.


Two early front runners for the Maryland Terrapins 2017 recruiting class are power forward Mohammed Bamba and point guard Quade Green. Both players hail from the state of Pennsylvania and early signs show Maryland in the tentative top five for both players. Over the next few days, we'll take a look at each recruit, starting today with Green.

Point guard Quade Green, while currently being a little more under the radar than Mohammed Bamba, is the one whom has me personally more excited. Or, perhaps the recent success of the Maryland Terrapins basketball team has me irrationally excited about superior point guard play. Speaking of that, it is a possibility that current freshman Melo Trimble would still be a member of the Terps by the time Quade Green offered his services to the team, but to make such an assumption would be an optimistic to say the least. Instead, we can likely assume that by the time the 2017-2018 season arrives, the Terrapins will be in need of a new point guard, and early indications tell me that Green would be more than capable of filling that role if Trimble does turn pro before his senior season. Green, much like Trimble, shows a natural ability to drive aggressively to the basket. Additionally, whilst digging up as much as I possibly could on the young man, I discovered that Green has the apparent ability to score from anywhere on the floor, much like 2015 recruit Kobie Eubanks, whom we profiled a few weeks ago.

Green does a great job getting to the rim, finishing, and often times will draw contact from a defender in the process. In an era of basketball in which the mid-range game is disappearing, the two aforementioned recruits could provide the Terps with a rare weapon...a mid-range game

Green is currently not rated by any of the major recruiting services, but that's because they haven't completed their 2017 rankings yet. Expect Green to be at least a 3-star, potentially 4-star, recruit once that process is completed. One limiting factor, at least initially, for Green could be his size; he's currently listed at just 5'11" and 155 lbs. But because he received an offer from Maryland should pretty much guarantee he'll start with at least  3-stars.

In addition to Maryland, Quade Green has received scholarship offers from Providence, Rhode Island and St John's and has also generated interest from Villanova and Louisville.

Here are some recent highlights from Quade Green. What do you think?
