TCU head men's basketball coach Jim Christian announced on Wednesday (Nov. 12) that prep standout Garlon Green (Missouri City, Texas | Hightower H.S.) has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Horned Frogs in the Fall of 2009.

"We are very excited to have a player of Garlon's talent join our program," said Christian. "He possesses tremendous length, is a versatile player and has the ability to stretch out the defense and create mismatches on both ends of the floor. He's a tremendous talent from the State of Texas and comes from a great basketball family. We're really excited to have not only a player of Garlon's ability join our program, but also a young man of his character."

The newly-signed Frogs brings tremendous bloodlines to the Purple and White as his brother - Gerald Jr. - currently plays for the Dallas Mavericks after being drafted out of high school by the Boston Celtics. His father - Gerald Sr. - earned a basketball scholarship to Texas Southern during his playing days.

The 6-7 wing will enter his senior season at Hightower High School as the 20th-ranked player in the State of Texas - according to TexasHoops.com - after playing for one of the top AAU programs in the Houston Hoops



BigPurpleNation.com Evaluation:

Green told BigPurpleNation.com back in October,” I just really love the whole atmosphere in Fort Worth and really loved Coach Christian. I really think he is a coach that can take me where I would like to go.”

Green is a great pickup for first year head coach Jim Christian. Adding him to the wing next year with young players like Ronnie Moss and Kavon Rose, should make Horned Frog basketball fans excited.

You can learn a lot about a player by asking them “what they think about their game.” With the small forward, you can tell that he is very confident on the court.

“I’m very athletic and can shoot the ball pretty well. My handles are getting better, I really think that I’m an all around type player and not a certain kind,” said Green.
