The 6-6, 250-pounded flew under the radar for much of the recruiting season because of his limited amount of football action. However, after a strong senior season that concluded in a state championship Greene was upped to a four-star prospect by Scout.com.
Greene committed to Auburn on Nov. 29 and chose the Tigers over Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Louisville and Marshall. Still a very raw player with a huge frame, he fits the mold of what defensive coordinator Will Muschamp is looking for in a defensive end--size and athleticism. He took his official visit to Auburn on Jan. 12, which was his only official to take to any school.
Greene was an All-State player as a senior and may have a chance for early playing time after the departure of Marquis Gunn and Christopher Browder.
His coach, Carlton Flatt, says that Auburn is getting a very interesting prospect. "He has a tremendous amount of potential," the veteran coach says. "He has lots of athletic ability, great size and he is only going to get better as a college player at Auburn."
