Kentucky commit Quade Green was selected to the 2017 McDonald’s All-American Boys Team for the second consecutive year.
On March 29, Chicago’s United Center will host and showcase the top talent across the country. The McDonald’s All-American Hometown Heroes focuses on the top 48 boys and girls student athletes across the country to “recognize the impact the player and community have on each other.”
Green, the 6’1” 170 lb senior point guard at Neumann-Goretti High School is ranked 2nd on 2017 ESPN Top Pennsylvania Recruits, as well as ESPN’s 22nd national recruiting rank.
The McDonald’s All-American Hometown Heroes held a jersey presentation and award ceremony at Neumann-Goretti High School on Monday night, where Green accepted the honors with family and friends.
Since Green’s freshman year at Neumann-Goretti, he has created an impressive resume with becoming a three-time PIAA 3A Boys Basketball State Champion, and is currently on the hunt for his fourth and final State title.
Among Green, two additional players from Pennsylvania were selected for the team. Lonnie Walker out of Reading High School and AAU teammate, Mohamed Bamba, from the Westtown School. The three will become teammates as they represent the East team.
On November 19, Green announced his commitment to attend and play basketball at Kentucky. Green also received offers from Duke, Syracuse, Temple, and Villanova.
Green will also be accompanied by three future Wildcat teammates, Nick Richards (Elizabeth, N.J.), Findley Washington (Henderson, Nev.) and Jarred Vanderbilt (Houston).
