The Clemson Tigers were the first school to offer the Conway standout.

"Clemson is my only offer," Green told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. Expect that offer list to grow as some of the top schools around the country are showing interest. "Tennessee, Oklahoma, North Carolina State, Auburn, Nebraska, Michigan State, Georgia and Iowa are all showing interest," stated Green.

When asked who is recruiting him the hardest at this moment, Green responded, "Clemson and probably Iowa are recruiting me the hardest right now."

There are no early leaders for the standout defender. "I don't have any right now. I am just enjoying everything right now."

The talented defender traveled to Clemson earlier this month to attend Junior Day. "I liked it. I like the whole environment there. I got to talk with Coach Swinney, Coach Blackwell and Head Coach Bowden."

The Conway High star and his teammate Eric Huggins plan to visit Tennessee this weekend. "We talk about playing together in college. We'll just have to see how it goes."

How does the South Carolina star feel about attending college in a small town atmosphere? "I like that town. It would probably keep me for focused that a big town would."

Academics will be a very important factor when Green decides where to attend college. "I will look at what kind of academic standards they have. I will see if they have the major I like. I would like to major in engineering."

Coach Swinney is recruiting the talented athlete as a defensive end for the Tigers. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defensive end from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2005.
