|Michael Greenlee Jr-Toledo|
It’s still very early, but Ohio’s class of 2023 is starting looking like it’s going to be one of the better classes we’ve seen in years. Near the top of the class is Michael Greenlee Jr. (5’4”/combo guard/Toledo/2023). We’ve seen him in action a couple of times at our elite showcases and each time we were impressed with his game. In fact, the last 2 showcases Greenlee attended, not only did he punch his ticket to the all-star game; he balled out on his way to Top 5 Award honors. Greenlee also put in work at Jerry Watson’s Nike City Series a few months ago, and was selected to the event’s All-Tournament Team.
The first time we saw Greenlee we had this to say about him: “…No one impressed us more than Michael Greenlee Jr., a long and athletic lead guard who displayed an almost complete game. Not only is he effective at getting into the paint and finishing, Greenlee can knock down the jumper as well. Greenlee’s performance was so impressive, he will vault to the top of the class on our top player lists.” Greenlee excelled this past season on a loaded Maumee Bay Turf team, where he averaged nearly 20 points per game.
We think so highly of Greenlee that we selected him as 1st Team All-Ohio, and currently have him listed as a potential top ten in the state in the class of 2023. That's impressive because he’s up their with guys like Gabe Cupps, LA Hayes, CJ Hornbeak, Dre’Sean Roberts, Chase Walker, Desh Molton, Jayvion Moore, Jyles Brandon, Daylin Swain, Karl Burroughs, LeBron James Jr. and Antaune Allen. If you’re listed among the best in this class that’s really saying something! You can check Greenlee out on March 4th when he returns to the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase where he will once again put his rep on the line and compete against the best in the state, region and country!
