"It went well," remarked Greene in regards to Tennessee's Junior Day held this weekend. "We went to see them practice and we toured their facilities. I talked to Coach Fulmer and Coach Brooks. Coach Fulmer basically told me to go out and have a good season and don't worry about recruiting."

Greene has also been in attendance for N.C. State's and Clemson's Junior Days, and plans to be present when Georgia holds their Junior Day. In addition, Greene intends to visit the N.C. State, Clemson and Tennessee spring games in addition to camps at Tennessee, Auburn, Georgia and Oklahoma this summer.

The aforementioned schools have all expressed significant interest in Greene's services, but only Clemson has offered. He expects that to change in the near future, especially after his Tennessee visit.

"I took film up there yesterday, they haven't talked to Coach Fulmer about it yet, but the defensive coaches have viewed it," Greene said. "So I guess I have to wait to find out if they are going to offer."

Greene isn't waiting for teams to offer before developing a short list. He has established a top five, but admits with things being so early, anything can change.

"My top colleges I would love to go to would be Oklahoma, Michigan, Tennessee, Clemson and Auburn," Greene said. "None of those schools stand above the rest yet."

Greene, who could be considered one of the top recruits to come out of South Carolina this year, recorded 134 tackles, five sacks and five forced fumbles as a junior. He plans to surpasses those marks this upcoming season.
