Wendell Green Jr. is a star in the making. He’s rated by PrepHoops as the #4 prospect in Michigan’s class of 2020 and he has an skill set that makes him a Division 1 high major talent. The 5-11 sophomore point guard from Detroit Country Day is a playmaker who contributes in all aspects of the game. There may not be a better passer in Michigan, and Green Jr. is an elite scorer and defender. I recently caught up with Wendell Green Jr. for a Question and Answer session.
