Temple coach Fran Dunphy "was the first guy to recruit me," Green said of picking the Owls. "He offered me at the end of my sophomore year.

"Every school I went to, I always compared them back to Dunphy and Temple. And I just thought Temple was the best fit for me."

Green averaged 22 points in route to being a second-team all-South Jersey selection by The Inquirer last season. He garnered third-team honors as a sophomore.
