"I really don't know a whole lot of things about Iowa," said Greene. "Some people say its just cornfields, but my former teammate, Khalik Price, tells me it is a different atmosphere from where we are from. I like that fact because I want to go somewhere different. Coach (Darrell) Wilson asked me to visit, and basically I just have to go out and see what the school has to offer."

However, do not count on Greene making a decision based off emotion nor representation of his home state.

"I want to keep my options open, and take the remainder of my visits. I have Wisconsin on the 19th, and I'm going to visit Clemson on January 16th. All of those schools are equal right now. I'm looking for the place where I feel the most comfortable with the people and surroundings. It doesn't really matter if there is a lot of Jersey guys on the roster or not."

Greene, who rushed for over 1,200 yards this year, is being recruited to Tiger Town by Clemson defensive coordinator John Lovett.
