Big 2011 Wideout Gets Blue Devil Offer

Jeff Greene, 2011 prospect from Starr's Mill High School in Fayetteville, Ga., continues to draw attention from several BCS conference schools. He recently received his first offer, and there is a new leader for talented wide receiver.

"Duke offered me just the other day," said Jeff Greene. "I got the letter a few weeks after it was sent out. They said they wanted to congratulate me on my junior season. They said that they had evaluated me, and wanted to offer me a scholarship.

"Duke is pretty far up there. They're probably number one for me right now. I'd say that Alabama is second. South Carolina, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and Auburn are still in there, too."

The detailed letters continue to come in for the 6-6, and 200 pound, prospect.

"In the last month, I've received some handwritten letters from Georgia Tech and UCLA. UCLA sent me one before Christmas. UCLA has sent me three handwritten letters. Tech (Georgia Tech) sent me a handwritten letter after Christmas.

"In the letters both schools invited me to their junior days. I might go to Tech's junior day. I'll choose between Tech and Duke because those junior days are around the same time. I'll probably have two junior day visits. I was thinking about going to Georgia's junior day for the other visit."

As of now the Southwest Metro-Atlanta athlete has two summer camps in mind.

"I'll go to Georgia's passing camp," he said. "I'll probably go to one of the camps at Duke. So far I just have those two in mind."

Greene helped lead Starr's Mill to the first round of the playoffs. He had a tremendous season on both sides of the ball.

"On offense I finished with 33 catches for 622 yards, and three touchdowns," he said. "On defense I had 50 tackles, three interceptioins, and one interception returned for a touchdown."
