"I finished with a 3.3 GPA and made an 18 on the ACT," Green said. "I will report to Alabama on June 1."

Expectations for himself this fall:
"I think I want to pick up the speed of the game the most. There's a lot of experience out there. I want to get on that level and just catch up to the physical part and the speed of college football, and learn the system. I want to go in and try to play early, and just maintain a positive attitude."

Offseason workouts:
"I've been working out since December to now. It's been pretty intense. I work out at a place called Sonic Boom, with my trainer Wyatt Harris. Sonic Boom has Tulane and LSU prospects work out there as well. There's lots of running and lifting so I should be able show up in shape."

Expectations for the team:
"I have high expectations this coming season. Last year was Saban's first year, and this year we should have a better team in-and-out. He's a great coach, and I don't want us to lose any games."

Position:
"Probably all four years will be at corner. I read some stuff on the internet about me starting at safety, but the plan is to be at corner. Really, any place is fine as long as it's the secondary. I'm not a big bulky guy, so I don't really see myself as a safety, but I'm sure I could pick it up if necessary."

Jersey number:
"Either two or 21. Coach [Burton] Burns told me it would probably be in the 20s."

On being a part of the nation's number one signing class:
"It's wonderful. It's one of the best classes to ever come through Alabama. It's great, especially with fan support Alabama has. The coaching staff did a great job. I'm expecting good things, and I know they're expecting good things. We just have to go out and prove what we can do."

On Coach Saban:
"Everybody knows he's a heck of a recruiter. This guy recruits very hard. He stays on kids constantly, so he's the best in college football. His staff does a wonderful job. He has those guys working a lot. He's a great positive guy and always pushes you for good results, because he's always wants you to do better."

When he knew Alabama was the place for him:
"During Coach Saban's in-home visit. During his visit, I committed to him on the spot."

Where he would have ended up if he didn't choose Alabama:
"LSU."
