    The top Tennessee prospect after lefthander Ryan Weathers, Green is a strong, toolsy outfielder committed to Vanderbilt who has a chance to go among the first few rounds because of his exceptional power potential. He hit several long home runs at big events including the East Coast Pro showcase last summer and hit with a wood bat throughout the spring with double-digit home runs as well. He also brings a strong throwing arm to the table. A solid runner, some scouts give him a plus grade on his speed, while others think solid-average is more accurate. Green will likely move to a corner outfield spot in the future but has played shortstop and third base in the past, as well as center field. His reads and route running need work, but he has the athleticism and arm to become a solid defender. The biggest question with Green will be the swing-and-miss tendencies he showed last summer, using an all-or-nothing swing at times. There's some rawness to iron out of Green's game, but he is among the best righthanded-hitting power hitters in the high school class.
