Braelon Green, a top-60 overall prospect, is narrowing down his recruitment. On Wednesday, the 4-star combo guard out of Southfield, Michigan included Tennessee in his top 5 teams.

The Vols are joined by Arizona State, Kansas, Michigan State and Texas in Green’s top 5.

Tom Izzo’s MSU program will likely be hard to beat for a Michigan recruit. Green told On3’s Joe Tipton that he’s considering UT for multiple reasons.

“Rick Barnes, his name speaks for itself,” Green told On3. “He has a lot of pros and he just produced Kennedy Chandler last year.”

Listed at 6-3, 175 pounds, Green is rated 4-stars, the No. 4 Michigan recruit, No. 12 combo guard and No. 59 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2023 on the 247Sports Composite. Alabama, Mississippi State and Missouri are also among Green’s 15 scholarship offers.
