Indiana picked up its fourth Class of 2016 commitment on Saturday as guard Devonte Green, the younger brother of San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green, pledged to the Hoosiers. The 6-foot-1 Green announced his decision to commit to Indiana on Saturday afternoon.
Regarded as a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, Green can play a bit of both guard spots and helps Indiana with additional perimeter flexibility for next season. Green joins four-star shooting guard Curtis Jones, four-star big man Da’Ron Davis and three-star guard Grant Gelon in Indiana’s 2016 class.
With the Hoosiers losing Yogi Ferrell and Nick Zeisloft next season — and with the team dealing with roster uncertainty with James Blackmon’s season-ending injury and Troy Williams potentially going pro — Green gives Indiana another insurance policy. The late-blooming Green hails from New York and attends Long Island Lutheran.
