Nyah Green, the 6-foot guard from Allen, Texas, has given Louisville coach Jeff Walz her verbal commitment.  Green chose Louisville over several finalists including fellow front-runner Baylor as well as LSU, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Texas Tech.

The talented breakdown guard gives the Cardinals an impact recruit for the future.  Green is in the mix for the top overall spot when the 2019 ELITE 25 rankings come out later this spring

None of the current players on the Cardinals roster will be there when Green reaches campus, barring injury, but the recently signed five-player, top 10 rated class will be seniors.  That class includes four players standing 6-1 or taller in 6-4 post Kylee Shook, 6-4 post Ciera Johnson, 6-1 wing Jazmine Jones and 6-1 forward Bianca Dunham, as well as 5-9 guard Sydney Zambrotta.  Both Shook and Johnson were selected as McDonald’s All-Americans.

Green is a dynamic guard who uses her quickness and length to create.  She can break defenders down in isolations as well as work off ball screens.  She has some of the quickest handles in the country, which is rare in a guard with her length and size.  She has shown her talent on the club circuit as well as at elite camps such as the 2014 EBA Super 64 Camp and the 2015 Check Me Out Showcase.

Green is just the second player in the freshman class to commit to date.  She joins Bria Harmon who has verbally committed to Purdue.
