Former Perth Wildcats guard Hugh Greenwood is set to make his AFL debut for the Adelaide Crows on Saturday against the Brisbane Lions.
Greenwood signed with the Wildcats on a three-year deal roughly 18 months ago before electing to leave the sport in favour of a rookie contract with the Crows.
The former New Mexico University standout played the sport as a junior in Tasmania which contributed to his decision to make the change in code.

In addition to a stellar college career alongside Brisbane Bullets big man Cameron Bairstow, Greenwood also represented Australia at the 2015 World University games as well as the 2009 and 2011 FIBA Under-19 World Championships.
In being elevated to the AFL roster Greenwood takes the place of Josh Jenkins, a former basketball player himself and a one time Townsville Crocodiles development player.
