UK Freshmen Scout UK Freshmen: Quade Green

Way back in August I was able to sit down with each member of the Kentucky Wildcats to talk about the college basketball season ahead, and part of my discussion with the new class of freshmen included a brief scouting report on each of their classmates.

Due to time constraints I was unable to get a complete report from all seven of the new Cats, but here’s what I heard about Quade Green when I asked his fellow freshmen to describe his game.

On Quade Green…

Kevin Knox: “One of the vocal leaders — loves to talk; great sense of humor. I expect him to pretty much set up the whole pick-and-roll, a lot of alley oops, a lot of assists. I could see him average about 10 assists this year.”

Nick Richards: “Quade is really good. He’s one of the best point guards I’ve played with so far, in my whole entire career of basketball.”

P.J. Washington: “Quade, he’s short. He can shoot it. He likes to talk. He’s a general. He likes to run the team and he can play defense, too.”

Jemarl Baker: “Facilitator. Leader. He can score, hit shots, and everything.”

Quade Green: “I say he can shoot the mid-range; got a good floater game. He needs to get a little faster — strong and aggressive.”

    I think that Quade’s gonna be a bit of a project compared to other Freshman point guards that Cal has brought it…

    Hope I’m wrong…
