Green Favoring Two

Reggie Green trimmed his list to five schools, and he is favoring two. The Cranford (N.J.) High athlete spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about his recruitment, and which schools are in front.

Cranford (N.J.) High athlete Reggie Green's focus is on the season and repeating as a state champ, but he is also keeping a close eye on recruiting and could be nearing a decision.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Green is looking at five schools, but he has a pair standing out. "I would say Temple and Pittsburgh are my top two," Green said.

He is also looking at Boston College, Wisconsin and Michigan State, but he is getting the most interest from Pittsburgh and Temple.

In fact, Green's lone official visit scheduled to date is to Pittsburgh, where he will be for the Sept. 15 meeting against Virginia Tech.

"They're going into their last year in the Big East and they're going into the ACC next year, so that should be exciting,' Green said. "I if I go there I would have a chance to play in the ACC. They're looking at me more as an athlete on the offensive side of the ball, and that's what I want to do.

"We talked about (the official visit) and I'm excited. We play Friday night and I'm going to go after the game."

Green recently visited Temple and left with a favorable impression of the Owls, whose stock was buoyed by the fact they moved to the Big East.

"They want me as an athlete, more on the offensive side of the ball," Green said. "They want me as a wide out. It's not too far from home so I'm checking that one out a lot, too."

Contact with Boston College has been sporadic, but Green said the Eagles remain on his radar.

"They want me on the offensive side of the ball," he said. "I haven't scheduled an official visit there but I would like to. I'm in touch with the staff all the time."

Schools recruited Green for several positions – linebacker, safety and receiver – and it was that versatility that led Michigan State to offer in the spring.

Wisconsin also is showing Green interest, but is yet to extend an offer.

"(Michigan State) has me as a corner and a wide out," Green said. "I still haven't scheduled an official visit there but would like to.

"Wisconsin, it seems like a fun school to check out. I think it would be cool to go and see it."

The visit to Pittsburgh, though, will be telling in when Green could make a decision.

"After the Pittsburgh visit, I'll figure everything out from there," he said.
