Update (Aug. 24, 2:22 PM)
Green gave CoBL a short statement, and said that he would give a full update on his situation in a released statement on Sunday evening, though he didn’t specify an exact time.
“The only thing I can say right now is that it was my decision not to travel with the team to Europe due to personal family reasons,” Green said. “As far as what’s going to happen in the future, Sunday night I will make a statement and have everything I need to say ready.”
He would not confirm or deny whether or not he would be at Temple this upcoming season, though multiple sources told CoBL that he will not enroll this fall or play for the Owls.
Freshman Kyle Green is no longer enrolled at Temple University, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.
Green, a 6-foot-5 wing, was one of three incoming freshmen Temple coach Fran Dunphy had as part of his Class of 2013, along with St. Anthony (N.J.) guard Josh Brown and Montrose Christian (D.C.) forward Mark Williams. With several players ahead of him on the depth chart, Green was not expected to contribute his freshman year.
A McDonald’s All-American nominee as a senior at Camden Catholic, Green finished his career with a school-record 1.734 points. He chose Temple last July over offers from Albany, Quinnipiac, Florida Atlantic and Colgate.
The Owls have been in Europe since last Wednesday, returning today (Aug. 23); Green was reportedly not with the team, due to personal reasons. His departure leaves the team with just 10 players, including walk-on Nick Pendergast, on its roster.
