HT: 6'2  | WT: 165 

If you are looking with a cornerback with plus size and the ability to lockdown the opposition's No. target, the Green is a who is battle tested doing just that week in and week out. He also faces the best competition in practice each and every day as DeSoto sent multiple receiver to the P5 level. He is good playing close to the line of scrimmage with his long arms and physical style of play or he can drop back and be an effective zone-style defensive back. He reacts quickly and can make plays on the ball. He is more of a coverage guy, but does have the size to be an effective tackler. 

Gemon was named the DB MVP at The Opening Dallas and earned an invite to The Opening Finals. 

Quotable:

"It was very exciting to get that offer and I am glad that he (Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh) thinks that I am a great player on the field. Great coaches, great teammates and stuff like that, a great education. I have to get my education."

Player Profile: German Green

Analysis:

HT: 6'2  | WT: 173 

German is just a bit bigger than his twin brother Gemon and there are not many folks out there who have had the opportunity to see him play at 100 percent, as he missed his junior season with an ACL injury, but for those of us who have we know that his upside and potential is through the roof as a safety prospect. He is long, has tremendous coverage skills, and plays with an attacking style. He is able to sink his hips and get into and out of breaks easily, and coming off of his injury this spring he has been able to show that same ability post-injury. He will end up as one of the more highly recruited players in the state and his offer list reflects that major schools know he is special too.  

Despite missing that junior season, German still checks in very highly in the safety rankings. He is the No. 12 rated safety in Texas, and could climb that list quickly with some solid senior film. 

Quotable:

"I just came back and I am fixing to prove everybody wrong and that I am up there with my brother -- I'm better than my brother. I play cornerback and safety."
