First look: Jeremy Green…

In a season of constant roster changes, the Erie BayHawks add another player to their roster in former Stanford standout Jeremy Green.

A 6-4, 200-pound guard, Green declared for the NBA Draft after his junior season in 2010-11, but wasn’t drafted. From Austin, Green averaged 16.7 ppg. and shot shot 42.9 percent from 3 in 2010-11.

Green is a talent, but was in the news at Stanford for more than just his on-court ability. In October of 2009, Green was suspended after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence at a campus dormitory, but was reinstated before the opener. No charges were filed.

In November of 2010, Green collapsed from experiencing dizziness and stomach pain due to exhaustion moments after a game against DePaul.


Green, who had a stomach virus and had trouble keeping food down, rejoined the team.

In April of last year, Green was suspended from the team for academic reasons, but his eligibility would have not been affected had he returned to school. Green chose to enter the draft.

Now considering he was a first-team All-Pac 10 (Now Pac-12) performer as a junior, Green can play. Has the size to play shooting guard and gives Erie some offensive balance, but again, this is another player Erie will try to fuse into it’s system in a short time frame.

At the end of the day, if all his other issues are in the past, then Green may be in the right place at the right time.
