Though Green has one of the better bats in the Texas high school ranks this spring, his power arm is too much for scouts too ignore. He regularly operates at 90-92 mph and reaches 95 with his fastball, and he backs it up with a hard curveball. He's only 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, and while he has a quick arm, he has some effort to his delivery that will need to be addressed. He's a tenacious competitor who was slowed late in the spring when he jammed his wrist on a headfirst slide, though he recovered to allow a total of one run in his first three playoff starts while pitching Brazoswood to the state 5-A regional finals. A high school shortstop, Green will play both ways if he attends Texas Christian. He has plus bat speed that gives him good power potential from the right side of the plate. Though he has the arm to play shortstop, he projects as more of a third baseman or corner outfielder at the college level. Scouts believe he's more signable than the typical TCU recruit.
