Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Starting to Come Around

Well, it looks like a couple of D1 schools woke up and smelled the coffee regarding the recruitment of Madison Heights Bishop Foley senior forward Corey Green.
After getting ignored the past few months by the big boys at the next level, Green is finally getting the respect that he deserves. Averaging 24 points and 14 rebounds a game and leading your team to a perfect 5-0 start to the season can do that.
According to Burney's well-placed sources, both Central Connecticut State and Bryant University are showing interest in Green, a powerful and fast-improving presence on the wing.
CCS is quite acquainted with hoopsters from the area. The team's starting point guard this year is former North Farmington star Kyle Vinales. Bryant is located in Rhode Island and competes in the Northeast Conference.

Don't sleep on this kid. He has a tremendous upside. Besides his natural athleticism and innate grace running the floor, Green has improved his outside shot incredibly since last year. He is currently shooting 40 percent from 3-point distance and demonstrating his stroke at the most clutch opportunities as exampled by his back-breaking triples in the fourth quarter of the Ventures win over Melvindale in Foley's own holiday tournament late last week.
Oh, did I mention he dropped a double-double of 33 points and 10 rebounds, too?
Yeah, mark that down!
Coming over from UofD-Jesuit last season, Green helped take the Ventures to the first Catholic League title in school history and the program's fourth district crown in a row. His slam dunks this year have been things of beauty, posterizing several opponents while doing his best LeBron James impression viciously attacking the rim.
If you want to catch my man MONEY aka CGreen in action this week, you can check him and the Foley cage crew doing battle with Royal Oak Shrine on Friday
