Green sticking with Arizona

Despite being an Arizona commit, Zachary Green has seen his recruiting attention pick up as of late. Read on for his thoughts on his new offers, commitment status, and more.

Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure running back Zachary Green was one of the best players in California high school football last season.

Green, who ran for 1,700 yards and 27 touchdowns, helped his team beat some traditional powers, but still fell short of winning the state championship.

"Overall, we had a great season," Green said. "We beat some really good teams like Santa Margarita and played some other teams tough. We lost in the semifinals, but we're proud of what we accomplished because a lot of people didn't give us a chance against some of these teams.

"We felt going into the year we would surprise some people because we have some pretty good players."

Recruiters noticed Green's stellar play this past season.

"I've gotten more attention because of the year I had," Green said. "Schools like California and Washington have offered me since then and I've gotten interest from some other schools."

Unfortunately for those schools, Green plans on remaining a Wildcat.

"It obviously feels good to get interest and more offers," Green said. "The schools coming after me are good schools with good reputations and good coaches, but the timing just wasn't right."

Although he is receiving new attention, Green says it is the fact that Arizona has been around the longest that is going to lead to him staying a Wildcat.

"Arizona was there from the beginning and I'm excited to get down to Tucson and start learning the playbook and everything that comes with it," he said. "I'm not taking any visits and I'm just passing my time until college begins."

Green may be looking forward to arriving at Arizona, but says he will also be working hard.

"I'm just working on the little things like my visions and leading by example," Green said. "I'm also thinking about the academic part of it.

"I want to major in business and make sure I've got everything in order so I can hit the ground running, academically and athletically."
