Virginia basketball made the top five for four-star PG Trey Green

Virginia made the top five for four-star point guard Trey Greene from Branson, Missouri. Green announced his final list of schools on Monday and it includes LSU, Xavier, UVA, VCU and Miami.

This is both good and bad news for the Cavaliers.

Good news, because Virginia is in the running on July 25 for one of the hottest recruits in the 2023 class and a player who was offered from Tony Bennett a week ago. Bad news because Green has set a deadline for his decision and it’s very soon. Green will announce his college commitment on Aug. 6, and unless he takes a visit to UVA, his chances of committing to the Cavaliers aren’t very high.

Green took an official visit to Xavier this week and the Musketeers appear to be strong favorites to land his commitment on Saturday.

Despite being a bit undersized at 5’10, Green has quickly become a hot commodity in the 2023 class, displaying an infinite range three-point shooter as well as impressive playmaking and passing skills. The EYBL Peach Jam champion averaged 16.0 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.3 rebounds per game last week and was named the Peach Jam MVP.

The Link Academy point guard is the No. 2-ranked player in Missouri, the No. 12 point guard in the country and the No. 98 overall prospect in 2023 by 247Sports. Greene had offers from about 20 programs, including Cincinnati, Nebraska, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Boston College and Wichita State — schools that didn’t commit.

Even though UVA’s chances are slim, the Hoos are still in the hunt. And with the point guard position being Virginia’s most pressing area of ​​need on the recruiting front, there’s no question that Tony Bennett and company are doing everything they can to pursue Trey Green. Xavier has the lead, but UVA is definitely a top-five program in Green, so the Knights can’t be counted out just yet.

Virginia drafted four-star wing Jamie Kaiser (Burke, VA), four-star combo guard Freddie DeLeon (Raleigh, NC), four-star combo guard Tyson Chatman (Minneapolis, MN) and four-star senior. Wing Andrzej Stojakovic (Carmichael, CA).

The Knights are looking for a second commitment in the class of 2023 to accompany Idaho’s No. 1-ranked Blake Buchanan, who announced his commitment to Virginia on July 3. UVA currently has offers to nine players in the 2023 class:

SF Jamie Kaiser (Burke, VA) PF TJ Power (Shrewsbury, MA) CG Freddie DeLeon (Raleigh, NC) SG Taison Chatman (Minneapolis, MN) SF Andre Stojakovic (Carmichael, CA) CG Elmarco Jackson (South Kent, CT) CG Elias Gertrude (Jersey City, NJ) PG Trey Green (Branson, MO) SG Devin Cosby (Richmond, VA)
