USAAAB: Green Is The West's Speedster

San Antonio, TX – Malcolm Brown is the strongest, Herschel Sims could be the best all-around runner, but Aaron Green's the fastest at this week's Army All-American west practices.

San Antonio, TX – If a college coach had all five running backs the Army All-American West Squad has, they probably wouldn't ever pass again. Malcolm Brown is the strongest, Herschel Sims could be the best all-around runner, but Aaron Green's the fastest.

The San Antonio Madison product hasn't always been able to get separation from the defensive line through the first three days of practice, but if he gets around the corner, watch out.

"Playing in the backfield with these talented running backs, I'm never going to forget it," said Green. "It's special. These guys are talented. I can't describe how good they really are.

"I knew it was going to be an experience of a lifetime, so I have been waiting for this week for a while now. I want to have fun more than anything, playing in the backfield with these talented running backs, I'm never going to have an opportunity like that again."

Brown, a Nebraska commitment,is one of four guys representing the Huskers this week. While interaction with his future teammates has been limited, Green has gotten a chance to talk with possible quarterback teammate Bubba Starling. The two have shared the same backfield on multiple occasions.

Starling and defensive back Charles Jackson are not the only future teammates that have been able to watch Green first hand in practices this week. Red-shirt freshman Andrew Green, Aaron's brother, has watched multiple practices while on holiday break.

"I'm very proud to see him out here after all of his hard work. It shows it paid off," said Andrew. "I'm pretty happy to have family coming up there, but at the same time I didn't pressure him. I really kept it true and honest and then let him consider it himself. I wanted him to make sure it was a good fit offensively and the system was right for him."

"He stayed out of the way. I wouldn't say he even encouraged me to go. When I decided that I wanted to go and I was making sure, I would ask him what he thought and he wouldn't tell me. He wanted it to be mine," said Aaron.

A Scout.com 5-star running back, Green is currently rated the No. 3 running back in the country. Green chose Nebraska over in state Texas as well as Cal and Florida State.

"It had that home feeling. I loved it when I went on that home visit," said Green. "It's a huge honor to play for Nebraska with the true history of the program they have there. I'm proud to call myself a Husker....Watching the bowl game was frustrating. I know that I could have helped him."

Green is rooming with fellow 5-star Texas running back Herschel Sims this week.

"All I can say he is a funny dude. I'm getting to know him pretty well."

Green says that teams didn't stop recruiting him when he committed, but programs have gotten the message.

"I'm a Husker 100%!"
