I knew years ago that someday I’d be writing this article. Wendell Green Jr. is a freshman point guard at Eastern Kentucky  and a Detroit native. If you’ve been a reader of mine for a while, you know how highly I’ve thought of Green Jr. I’ve seen him showcase his skills and dominate games from Detroit to Dallas, and many places in between. There have been a lot of predictions made for him on my part. Star. Fan favorite. All-Conference. All-American. Those are all words I’ve typed or spoken about Wendell Green Jr.

Green Jr. has had a terrific start to his freshman season at Eastern Kentucky. He’s currently averaging 10.2 points per game and dishing out 5.2 assists per game. Green Jr. has started 7 of his teams 9 games, while averaging 27.1 minutes a game.

Who will follow in the footsteps of the player that will someday be a legend in the city of Detroit? Are there any point guards that remind us of him? Are there players that share the same traits that lead to success? 

Let’s look at some Michigan players that I think could be the next Wendell Green Jr.
