Tigers Now Even for Hivera Green?

DL Hivera Green had several visitors today, as the Clemson and Oklahoma coaching staffs visited Conway High School. Who are the leaders for the 3-star defensive end? <BR>

Clemson assistant Coach Ron West paid a visit to one of the Clemson's top remaining in-state prospects today. "Coach West came by the school today. It went great," said Green in an interview with CUTigers.com Monday night.

The recent coaching changes at Clemson were the main topic that dominated the conversation. "I asked him about the firing of the three coaches. I asked him if I were to come would these coaches be there until I graduated. He said Coach Bowden still had six more years. He said that he would be still be there." Coach West plans to send Coach Bowden to discuss the changes, in person, with the prize recruit. "He said he was going to get Coach Bowden to come talk with me about the changes," stated Green.

Coach West wasn't the only visitor at Conway High today. "Coach Bob Stoops came to visit today also. It went great. We talked about how I was down to 240 when I visited because I had just had my tonsils removed. I'm up to 270 now. He said he was going to go back and discuss it with the coaches. He said he would get back to me on Friday about a scholarship offer."

Would the Shrine Bowl standout like to follow his teammate Eric Huggins to Oklahoma? "I was thinking about it, but I really don't know. I may let him go shine at another school and I'll go shine somewhere else."

Green has two clear favorites as he prepares to take his official visits. "I would say Virginia Tech and Clemson are neck and neck right now," Green told CUTigers.com.

The star defender is not likely to commit until he takes his official visits. "After I take my visits I will sit down and weigh my options. I will look at how steady the program is. I want to see how the players react when I ask them questions."
