Class of 2020 point guard Lynn Greer III and Roman Catholic participated in Philly Live 1, which was loaded with talent from top to bottom. Greer and his team were one of the top attractions at the event and drew some of the bigger crowds from Friday through Sunday. He spoke to Prep Circuit on this brand new event, his teammates and updates his recruitment.
Q: This is the first time you have the opportunity to play with your high school team in this type of setting. How has this experience been for you?
A: “We are just now coming together as a team because we haven’t had many practices,” he said. “It’s a group of a lot of young guys so we are just adjusting right now.”
Q: What is it like playing with two of the top talents in the 2022 class in Jalen Duren and Justice Williams?
A: “It’s great that they have chemistry before coming into the high school season,” Greer said. “It just makes it easier during the season. I really like playing alongside Justice because he compliments my game very well on the floor. Jalen is a big body is great at getting rebounds.”
Q: What schools have been active the most with you?
A: “Villanova, Florida, Indiana, Wake Forest and Miami.”
Q: What do you like about the Villanova Wildcats?
A: “Villanova, they have been straight up with me from the beginning and have been telling me what I need to work on,” said Greer. “They aren’t just telling me what I want to hear.”
Q: Wake Forest?
A: “Wake Forest is doing the same thing as Villanova by not telling me what I want to hear,” he said. “I want to know what I need to do to be on that next level because I want to improve every day.”
A: “Florida, Coach Mike White is a great guy and I really like their whole staff,” Greer said.
A: “Miami, I have a great relationship with Adam Fisher and I like the opportunity there,” he said.
Q: What would you say the biggest difference in your game now as opposed to earlier in your career?
A: “I think I bring more energy to the game and I think I’ve improved in being a leader and defensively,” Greer said.
