Greene and a number of other prospects from Florida's Coconut Creek High School visited Clemson last month during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"We saw the campus, practice facility, locker room, weight room, game field and all of that was amazing. Clemson has a great facility and it was just amazing to be up there," Greene told CUTigers, during a recent interview.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables offered Greene during the spring evaluation period.

"I talked to coach Venables just a little bit, right after the camp, and he put us on the tour," Greene said.

"He was just saying, ‘Hey, how you doing?' It was just the usual welcome."

For Greene, there was a lot to like about what he saw around the campus and inside the football facilities.

"I really like what they're going to build for the players… the hill, I videotaped the hill and that was amazing. I took a picture next to the rock and next to the tiger. That was amazing," he said.

Shortly after returning home from Clemson, Greene became a YouTube sensation after a few juke moves during a 7-on-7 event.



"For the last past week, it's just been hype. Everyone is always asking, everywhere I go, asking about the video," Greene said. "Just random people come up to me, because I look familiar. They're like, ‘You're the guy that did that shake?' I'm like, yeah.

"They're like, ‘How did you do that?' And I say, ‘It's just muscle memory. I don't know how, it just happened.' Yeah, everything, for the past week, it's been hype. But it's been fun."

Later this summer, Greene will visit Florida State and Alabama. A trip to Miami could be in the works, too.

As a sophomore, he caught 60 passes for 753 yards with 10 touchdowns.
