2017 Kentucky commit Quade Green is making a lot of Kentucky fans, and his future coach, happy recently. He just took home MVP honors at the Hoophall Classic, and he’s been talking all about how he’s recruiting Mohamed Bamba to Kentucky.
Bamba and Green were teammates with the PSA Cardinals, as well as with the USA U18 team, where they won a gold medal alongside Kentucky commit P.J. Washington and Kentucky guard Hamidou Diallo.
Green has apparently let Bamba know where he thinks he should go to school every chance he’s gotten.
“I tell Mo every day, BBN, BBN. I don’t say nothing to him but BBN. I laugh at him. He just laughs at everything, that’s all our conversations have been,” Green said.
Bamba seems to not mind the constant recruiting too much, though he made a remark about it while announcing his final four (which includes Kentucky).
“Quade has really been relentless,” Bamba said with a smile. “He’s been following around campus. It’s annoying.”
According to ZagsBlog, Green, Bamba and other Kentucky commits/recruits have been using Diallo as an inside source to how the Kentucky program is run.
“Oh, everybody using Hami as a spy,” Green said. “Me, Jarred [Vanderbilt], Nick [Richards], P.J. [Washington], we all in group chats and we all asking Hami, ‘What’s this, what’s that?'”
Here’s video of Green’s comments about Bamba at the Hoophall Classic.
