Another Green looking to become a Seminole

Christian Green has starred for Tampa Catholic since his sophomore year as he led his team to the state championship game. Now the junior athlete has been receiving interest from schools across the nation. This past weekend he was in Tallahassee to check out the game versus Wake Forest. NoleDigest was able to talk to him about the visit and to see what schools he's interested in at this time.

Florida State has already started looking at the nation's top players for the 2010 class as they are nearly done with this year's class. One of the top players in the state next year is Tampa Catholic quarterback Christian Green. The junior signal caller is also a talented enough athlete that some schools project him as a receiver on the next level. As of right now 3 schools have come through with offers at this time.

"I have a written offer from Florida State, and Michigan and Florida have offered me verbally," said Green. "I'm not sure what position these schools are looking at me as, yet. FSU I think likes me as an athlete. It doesn't matter to me where I play in college, but right now I like receiver a little more."

Christian has several ties to the Florida State program as several of his family members attended the university. Green told NoleDigest that that factor is a reason why he likes school, among other reasons.

"My cousin E.G. Green and my uncle played there, and another family member of mine graduated from there," stated Green about his family ties. "I like them a lot because I like the environment and people there. They are down to earth. I like the campus and I like how the fans have love for the players."

Green has been to Tallahassee several times, but this game was the first he had been to in a while. Overall it was a good visit and he was able to speak to some of the coaches.

"I had a good time on my visit," said Green, "and I enjoyed talking to the coaches. I didn't get the time I wanted because we had to head back home but I was able to talk to Coach Trickett and Coach Dawsey about the game."

With his recruiting process just getting underway Christian has thought a little bit about how he'll handle to process. He has a favorite school, but he is in no rush to make a decision. He says he plans on making his visits and then going from.

"I have FSU on top because of I have always liked them and always been a fan," explained Green. "I want to stay down south to play college so I like Florida, Miami and Georgia also. Even though I have a favorite I am open to the process. I want to take visits and see what other schools are going to be available for me. The school that I am most comfortable with and get along with the players and coaches best is the one I will choose."

The 6'2" 197 pound prospect is a hard-working player who gives it his all and who loves to compete. FSU has ties that make them a favorite, but look for Green to look at all of options before any decision is made.
