Georgia Big Man is High on the Tide

Defensive lineman, Ricory Green, 6-2, 280, 5.0, of Westover High School in Albany, Georgia, has worked hard this summer. He has one offer already, and he hopes to receive an offer from his favorite school.

"I received my first offer from Marshall about two weeks ago. I am really just waiting to receive an offer from Alabama," said Ricory Green.

Green became impressed with Alabama after he attended Alabama's camp.

"I was able to go the day before the camp and check out the campus and the facilities. I really liked it there. I spoke with Coach Wyatt. He is a really good coach. He stressed the importance of staying low and going hard. I really like him a lot. He told me they were low on defensive lineman, and I was one of the top defensive lineman on their list."

One thing really stood out about Alabama.

"The main thing to me was how they really stressed education. They told me about how they provide tutors and help you keep up with your academics. I was really impressed with the facilities. Everything was just really nice," said Green.

A few other schools are also being considered by Green.

"Well, if I can't go to Alabama, I would probably check out Georgia or Auburn. I really hope to get an offer from Alabama though."

Green has made a few phone calls over the summer.

"I have called Coach Wyatt (Alabama) a few times. I have also called some coaches from Auburn and the defensive coach at Georgia," said Green.

Green will try to attend several games this fall.

"I will try to go to several Alabama games. I really want to go, and they have told me they want me to come."

As football season approaches, Green is hoping for another great year.

"As a junior, I had around fifty tackles and five sacks. I am the only returning lineman from last year. We have some big boys on the team that will step up and help us. We should be alright," said Green.

When asked about his strengths, Green replied, "I would have to say my strength is my footwork. Everyone always tells me that my footwork is very good. I am a quick thinker. I know what someone is going to do. I feel like I'm always one step ahead of the person I am going up against. I also have great reaction time."

Green could make an early decision, if his favorite school offers.

"Of course I would go ahead and commit. Alabama is the only place I really want to go," said Green.
