Australian basketball star Josh Green commits to Arizona

Josh Green rises for a dunk last season at the John Wall Holiday Invitational

The addition of Green moves Arizona to 24/7 Sports No. 8 ranked recruiting class for next season.

Green is known for his versatility on both ends of the court. The Wildcats are expected to move into the top 10 in 2019 recruiting classes a month ahead of the November signing period.

Green told 247Sports.com that the Wildcats' longtime interest in him led to a strong relationship and his commitment.

"I feel like I have the best relationship with them", Green said. "Arizona's style of game really compliments mine".

"Not only have they built a great relationship with me but also an incredible relationship with my family and that is important to be able to trust them to see what they are saying and doing".

Josh Green, the hottest Australian basketball prospect to enter the USA college system since Ben Simmons, will sign for the University of Arizona.

Arizona's focus will now turn to the frontcourt in 2019.

Green and Mannion have already played together: They teamed up on the 2018 West Coast Elite 17U Under Armour All-America roster, where Green was a frequent recipient of Mannion's alley-oop passes.

On Wednesday afternoon, Green announced on Twitter he was making his decision in the next 24 hours.

"With me and Nico, we have always been close but I wanted to make sure that we did what was best for each other", Green said. "It just ended up being that we picked the same school and that was what was best for us as players and with our development". "I think now that we're going to the same school, point guard and shooting guard, we already have chemistry".

In 2014 Green's family relocated from Australia and he enrolled in Mountain Ridge High School to start his high school career.

Green also spent the 2016-17 season playing for Phoenix Hillcrest Prep along with former UA star Deandre Ayton, and Green's family still resides in Phoenix after moving from Sydney, Australia.

There was certainly plenty of optimism amongst the North Carolina contingent that Green would be Chapel Hill-bound. Arizona obviously has a great relationship with me. I feel like we're going to have a big impact.

Green joins Nico Mannion and Christian Koloko in the Wildcats 2019 class, proving Arizona and head coach Sean Miller are still a force on the recruiting trail after the Federal Bureau of Investigation scandal of last season.
