Quade Green has impressed on the AAU circuit. So much so that he's risen to the No. 22 recruit in the ESPN 100 for the 2017 class. The rise makes Green the third best point guard in his class behind Trevon Duval and Trae Young.
Green attends Neumann-Goretti High School in Philadelphia. You might have heard, but yes that's the same high school Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson attended! Green is currently leading the Nike EYBL circuit in assists and steals with 10.5 and 2.9 respectively. Check Green's sick nutmeg at the Pangos All-American Camp below.

Green's high school coach Carl Arrigale isn't surprised of Green's rise in the slightest. "It actually could be a little higher," He told Mike Waters. " He's been taking his game to another level. The last couple years, I needed him to score. We played a four guard attack, so he didn't always have the ball in his hands like a true point guard. People liked him but they saw him as a scorer. Now they're seeing his game expand."
Also on the rise in the 2017 class is Syracuse target Lonnie Walker. Syracuse offered Walker back in April who has now risen from No. 23 to No. 14 in his class as the third best shooting guard. He's behind Gary Trent Jr. and Hamidou Diallo, another Syracuse target.
If things go as expected, Syracuse could have as many as seven spots to offer for the 2017 class. Click here for further clarification.
