North Carolina has emerged in recent days as the favorite in the recruitment of Josh Green, a five-star prospect in the class of 2019 that has been tied to Kentucky this summer.
Green — a 6-foot-5 guard from Australia — is entering his senior season at IMG Academy in Florida and was one of the top stars on the Under Armour circuit this summer. He’s ranked as high as No. 8 nationally (by ESPN), and is the No. 11 overall player in the 247Sports composite rankings for the class of 2019.
