We recently the chance to talk to 2025 point guard Jeremiah Green of Sunrise Christian Academy (Bellaire, Kan).

This was less of a recruiting interview but one on the adjustment and growth of his game this season. This past month Green released his top 10 schools, so he did give Ballislife a brief on what to expect when decision time comes.

Green, who is a DFW native, transferred to Sunrise from Guyer (Denton, Texas) High School. He did do a small stint at AZ Compass during the fall of 2022, but 2023-24 is his first full season playing in the EYBL Scholastic league against some of the other top academy-type programs.

“I feel this season is getting me ready for college," Green said. "It’s a great learning season. I’m learning how to be a point guard, get teammates involved, my pace, understanding how to change gears. This level of basketball is so much different than what I’ve experienced in the past.”

Green continued to talk about why changing speeds is important when playing in a league such as the EYBL Scholastic.

"The bigs are so much bigger at this level. Last two seasons, I could just go as fast as I can, get to the rim and score. Here, I can’t do that. I have to survey the defense more, give them a different look because if I’m predictable, they’ll read me and block my shot.”

We've been able to watch a decent amount of Sunrise Christian Academy games and I did notice in the beginning, Jeremiah was more of a facilitator but the scoring came later in the game. In the second half of the season, I’m seeing more of a blend and an assertiveness early. He talked about why that’s the case.

"It just took a while to adjust to this level. Before Christmas break, I was just trying to get a feel for each game and later on, I would look to score. It clicked and I realize the earlier I’m aggressive, the quicker I can get to the flow of the game,” Green said.

Here are the 10 college programs Green will choose from: Auburn, Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado, Virginia, Texas, Texas A&M, Houston, TCU & Oklahoma. He has completed official visits to Auburn and Texas A&M. Additionally, he has been to Houston, Kansas State, and TCU for unofficial visits.

“I’m still just trying to figure out what the top half looks like," Green said. "Mindset is more on finishing the season the right way, but I’m looking at narrowing down what my top schools within this school list are. I probably will just announce where I’m committing when I’m comfortable doing that. I don’t know yet if I’ll drop a top 5, 3 or whatever, but if I’m comfortable to commit to a school, I’ll just post and commit.”

A point guard with a strong frame who excels getting downhill, Jeremiah Green holds the ability to impact games on both ends. Offensively, he puts pressure on the defense and scores with floaters, mid-range pulls or lay-ins. He's improved as a passer and understands how to get his teammates involved. Defensively, due to solid lateral mobility and overall strength, he’s shown he can disrupt the point of attack.

Ballislife will be in Augusta, Ga. for the next session of the EYBL Scholastic league, so stay tuned for event recaps, recruiting news and more.
