Another Brentwood Prospect Looking at Auburn

A football prospect from Tennessee discusses his interest in Auburn and other colleges.

Nashville, Tenn.--With Auburn looking to add a defensive end to this year's recruiting class, Brentwood Academy defensive end A.J. Greene is a prospect to keep an eye on because of his size and speed.

Greene has been quiet about his recruitment and says he will wait until his season is finished before making official visits or a decision, but he has some favorites.

"Definitely, Auburn is one," Greene explains. "Louisville maybe, Mississippi State and Marshall. That's pretty much all I'm looking at right now. I have offers from Louisville, Mississippi State, Marshall and TSU (Tennessee State University)."

At 6-6, 250 pounds, Greene says he runs a 4.75 40-yard dash, but needs to continue to work in the weight room to prepare for the college level.

"I'm not that strong, I wouldn't say, because I just started playing high school football last year," he says. "I came from a public high school, Hunters Lane, and I wasn't on any kind of weight program. I started lifting weights at the end of my sophomore year so I'm not as strong as I want to be right now, but speed-wise I'm pretty quick."

Greene has 31 tackles and five sacks for Brentwood, an Auburn pipeline with players like John Vaughn, Kody Bliss, King Dunlap and Mike Berry. Greene's team will get a bye week after finishing the regular season at 9-1. He also plays tight end in run situations.

Greene, who took a visit to the Miami vs. Louisville game earlier this season, grew up a fan of Tennessee, but says the Volunteers are only sending him letters.
