Green: Happy Camper

Pulaski Academy running back and USC commitment Broderick Green (6-1, 230, 4.57) makes a surprise visit to the UA Seniors Camp this weekend and leaves Fayetteville singing a much different tune than he was coming into the event.

Pulaski Academy running back and USC commit Broderick Green was interviewed by several different television stations and reporters on Friday and said he was confused about whether the University of Arkansas was really interested in signing him.

As of Saturday evening, the 6-2, 230-pound running back and five-star prospect said it's clear to him now that he is a wanted man.

That comes after the Razorback coaching staff showered him with attention while he was attending the school's Seniors Camp on Friday night.

"I had a lot of fun and had a great time," Green said. "I got to talk to all the coaches and they made it clear to me that they want me to come to school there, be a Hog and be on the same team as my brother (Stephen Green). I know they want me now and so now I can start thinking about what I am going to do. Arkansas is really moving up with me now instead of dropping out."

Former Pulaski Academy standout Stephen Green (6-1, 180), who originally with North Carolina, has plans to join the Arkansas football team either in August or possibly the second semester.

He will be working on his brother to join him and not end up at USC, Penn State, Oklahoma State or any of the other numerous places that have offered him.

"I'm going to do everything I can to get Broderick up here with me," said Stephen Green, who looked on as his brother worked out at the camp on Friday.

The younger Green came to the camp on Friday and put down 40-yard times of 4.64 and 4.66.

Those are nice times for a 230-pound back that ran for 1,664 yards and 21 touchdowns and caught 48 passes for 568 yards and five more scores last season.

"I know I can run it better, but felt pretty good about what I did," said Green, who has been timed at 4.57 before. "I'm really glad I decided to come up here. I know now that everybody wants me to be a Razorback."
