Anyone who has seen Courtney Green play, including Green himself, would agree on what his biggest strengths on the football field are.

"Playing against good defenses, and having a lot of pancakes [blocks] every game. I've got quick feet, and it's getting better. I ran a 4.9 in the forty."

Baylor, LSU, Oklahoma State, Iowa State are the schools recruiting Green the hardest according to Green. At this time his favorites are LSU, Baylor, and OSU.

Although Courtney Green has not visted the school, he explains that he played at Floyd Casey stadium, home of the Baylor Bear football team.

So as the time draws nearer to make a decision, what is it that Courtney Green is looking for in a school?

"The campus, and how it looks, the environment. Probably to start my freshman year, and probably somewhere close to home."

Courtney Green expressed that he is good friends with Baylor signee Jay Finley, a running back from Corsicana High School, and a former teammate of Green's.

As for a decision, Green has a timetable.

"I'll probably commit in two or three weeks."

"I stay after practice and lift weights and try to watch film all the time. There's not too many starters coming back on the offensive line, so it is good."
