Recruiting report: Millard North's Jayna Green

Millard North's Jayna Green hopes to make her college decision before the first week of August. 

Jayna Green has become a household name for Millard North girls basketball. Although not the team's leading scorer, she is an integral part of the Mustangs' attack.

Green plans to diversify her game in preparation for the next level. 

"I want to be more consistent shooting the 3-pointer because my position in college is evolving into that," Green said. "I'm not going be a post in college because I am not 6-foot-5. I feel like I can guard multiple positions but I need to get better at finishing around the rim." ​

Green, a 6-foot-1 senior forward, has scholarship offers from Division II schools Central Missouri, Northwest Missouri State and Newman University (Wichita, Kan.).

She is also using this summer to develop relationships with college coaches.

"The process is going fast for me, but I like having the relationships with the coaches before the offer happens," she said. "It makes me feel more comfortable to have a relationship with the coaches prior to them offering me a scholarship."

Green visited Truman State and Central Missouri on June 20 and 21. She will visit Division II Hillsdale (Michigan) College if she can fit it into her schedule. Hillsdale is coached by former Creighton assistant Matt Fritsche.

"I want to make a decision in late July or after AAU season gets done," she said. "I'd like to get the decision done before the first week of August."
