Green reports offer

Earlier this week the hot rumor was that offensive lineman Cody Green of Cullman had committed to sign with Alabama.

Preferring to go directly to the source, we contacted Cody to check on his status. And while he still ranks Alabama at the very top of his list, he has not committed.

"It is an honor to have offers from two great schools like Alabama and Arkansas," Green told BamaMag.com.

Green also lists Auburn, Tennessee and Florida in his primary group. "I will look hard at each of my top five and make the best selection for me," he said.

Updating his recruiting profile a bit, Cody Green confirmed that the Tide coaches did talk to him and offered a scholarship. He reports that the Razorbacks have also offered.

"I was offered a scholarship by Alabama the second week of the season," Green said.

Southern Miss, UAB and Troy State have also offered Green.

Green's teammate, Justin Britt, has also been offered a scholarship by the Tide. The younger brother of current Tide players Taylor and Wesley Britt, Justin plays on the defensive line. At this point it's believed that both athletes are leaning toward Alabama, though Green is obviously giving serious consideration to Arkansas and Britt enjoyed his recent trip to Georgia.

Green attended Bama's mini-camp this summer. Over his right shoulder (in the sunglasses) is Wesley Britt, current Tide lineman who graduated from Cullman.

Green played for Oneonta High School in 2002, but transferred to Cullman this past year. He and Britt have become good friends, with both benefiting from practicing against each other in workouts.

Three of Green's Cullman High School teammates, tailback Tyler Hearin, punter Joseph McPhillips and quarterback Zayne Smith are also being watched by the Tide.

TheInsiders.com's Andrew Bone took a good picture of the "Cullman Quintuplets". Note in the photo that Green is clearly two inches taller than Britt, who is listed at 6-4, but may be slightly shorter.

RECRUITING NOTES: Alabama is likely to sign at least four offensive linemen in the class, and Green appears to be one of their key targets.

Green's height (6-5) gives him the potential to play offensive tackle in college, though depending on his agility and footwork, guard could be his best position.
