Good read on Michigan State's Draymond Green with quotes from Tubby Smith and some background on his recruitment which included a UK commitment.
Draymond Green has become a at Michigan State, but he originally committed to Kentucky.
Great story, and an even greater player. His story proves that there are still some good players that come for the school and not just the coach. I like how Tubby admitted how badly he wanted to bring him with him to MN. Some people like to think that coaches don't do that when they change schools, but you know they do.
I know the phrase "prototypical Tubby recruit" has taken on (some of it fairly) a negative connotation but Green was a definitive Tubby/Izzo guy.
An underrated blue-collar guy that just did so many things to make your team better.
Yep. And a guy that had to be completely projected that way. Looking back at a junior year of HS Draymond Green, he didn't come close to resembling the guy we see now. Great eye by Tubby and Izzo to see that potential.
