DE Hivera Green
6-5, 270, 4.8
Conway High School
Conway, South Carolina
Conway standout Hivera Green has enjoyed relaxing with his family the past few days. "Yes sir I had a nice Christmas. I visited with the family and I ate lots of food," Green told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
On the recruiting front, the 6-5, 255 pound prospect is not quite ready to name a leader. "I'm waiting for January so I can take these visits. After that I will be ready. Virginia Tech and Clemson are still my leaders."
What does Green like about both schools?
Virginia Tech: "They have proven a lot this year. They have a great winning tradition. Their coaching staff is good and they are steady at this point."
Clemson: "I feel like I will have the opportunity to play as a freshman. They are losing Fountain and Coleman. They also have a good tradition. They are trying to stack up on defensive linemen this year. I could have a big impact my freshman year."
The South Carolina standout would like to play early, but he will leave that to the coaching staff. "If the coach thinks I should wait a year then I'll go with the coach. Let the coach decide on that. I know I have to get bigger, faster, stronger since I'm heading to next level," said Green.
Official visits seem to be the most important factor in Green's upcoming decision. "I will just have to break them down after the visits. I will see what I like and what I don't. I will come home and weigh the options. If I can't decide after that, I will have to pull it out of the hat I guess," added Green.
Green was also surprised at how many Clemson commitments were on the South Carolina Shrine Bowl squad, "I didn't know that many were going there until the Shrine Bowl. Everyone was going to Clemson."
Several of the Sandlappers have kept in touch since the game last weekend. "I've heard from a lot of those boys. I always hear from Ed. I have talked with Mike Davis, Reynaldo Hunter and several others. I had a lot of fun with those boys."
