This is a busy time of year for many of the country's elite players as many of them are taking weekend visits to many of the colleges that are wooing them. Players from the 2012 class are making school decisons of where they will be signing in the Fall, but this is also an important time for recruiters with players from the 2013 and 2014 classes as it is a great time to establish a stronger relationship within the process.

I got the chance to catch up with ESPNU 60 SG Brannen Greene (Monroe, Ga./Mary Persons), the No. 20 overall player in the 2013 class, to talk about the recruiting process and how things were going now that school is back in full swing. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard with a 4.0 GPA has been through a lot of transition during the spring and summer playing for three different AAU teams and is happy to be settled back into his school routine.

Greene played for the Southern Kings and the Atlanta Celtics before settling in with the Charlotte Royals this summer and it taught him how to adjust quickly to playing with new teammates. Like most elite players, Greene has had a lot of the basketball factory powerhouse prep programs solicit him for his services, but luckily for Mary Persons High he is loyal. When asked about his decision to stay put at his current high school Greene, a serious student that excels in the classroom and is very interested in majoring in bussiness when he gets to college, said "yeah, it was something that was put in front of us but I feel very comfortable with the academics and everything at my school."
