Keyante Green Turning Heads Early

Eagle's Landing Christian Academy running back Keyante Green is only a sophomore but he's already hearing from major schools across the nation. Green is already compiling information on each school as the process has just begun. We caught up with Keyante while he was watching his best friend and teammate Isaac Rochell at practice basketball.

The 5'8"-185 Keyante Green gets most of his reps at running back for Eagle's Landing Christian Academy but he also gets some reps at middle linebacker.

Green has been the starting running back since he was a freshman and has logged to very good years at that position. "I have put up some pretty good numbers each season and I hope the next two years I am able to do even more for my team."

The two strong seasons have drawn the attention of quite a few schools. "Right now I'm hearing from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Alabama."

Green feels that Georgia is recruiting him the hardest right now. "I get a lot of stuff in the mail and they just sent me a questionnaire to fill out."

Keyante has also been hearing from Georgia Tech Coach Joe Speed. "He was at school and talked with me and my best friend Isaac Rochell. He is a good guy and I like him a lot."

Green and Rochell have talked about attending the same school but it is not something that will be a factor in their recruitment. "Isaac says that I should come to Georgia Tech and I told him that I was going to look at the school that really wants me and makes me feel at home." Both Green and Rochell are looking for a school with good academics. "I really want to go to a school that has a great business management program."

Keyante has made arrangement to attend two camps this spring and summer. "I will attend a camp at Georgia and the MVP camp being held at Georgia Tech."

Now that football season is over, Green will begin preparing for the track season. Next year he will go back to baseball in the spring. "My main goal is to work on my speed."

While his teammate and best friend has a clear early leader, Keyante will let his recruiting play out and see which school he feels is the best fit for him. He has some major schools looking at him as a rising junior and almost two full years of recruiting left before he makes that decision. Top Stories
