His list of offers wasn't very impressive. Hopefully Paulsen has found another Livingston in this kid.

Greene looks to be a nice piece for the roster. Very athletic, good handle , aggressive on both ends of the floor and good touch from "3". He will need to get stronger but that is the case for most kids making the jump from high school to the A-10.

Playing behind Otis for two years will aid in his development.

I would not worry about his lack of P-5 and high mid-major offers. Paulsen and his staff have demonstrated that they can identify and develop talent that may have been overlooked by larger programs.

The kid can obviously shoot but I am a bit concerned that based on this video, and another one I saw recently, that he is a set shooter. At barely more than 6' tall, I am wondering whether he will be able to get that kind of shot off in college. I sure hope so. But this is not a "classic jump shot."

It's not really a classic set shot, either. Javon does get off the floor, although he obviously doesn't release the ball at the apex of his jump like a lot of guys.

He gets by with it now because his release is ridiculously quick, but likely will have to learn to elevate more on his shot to be successful on the D-I level.

I'd be more concerned if he couldn't jump, which is certainly not the case for a 6-1 guy who dunks with ease.

He's a year away and is 6'1" by most reports. He could be 6'3" by the time he arrives. If he is a true point then distribution and creating I'd think are priority #1. The perimeter scoring option will be a nice bonus in DP's motion offense. Oh, and defense matters.

I think the key point of your post is the quickness of his release.
If he can pass and assist he could be really good.

I thought the same thing. He also has a low release.

Here's a more recent video that shows much more offensive variety and explosiveness.


Especially love the baseline drive for the 2-handed dunk. Pretty impressive athleticism for 6-1.
