Dawgs Offer Another Derrick

Georgia picked up a commitment from Derrick Henry almost a year ago, but he has opened things back up. The Dawgs offered another prospect named Derrick on Tuesday who plays the same position.

"Georgia offered me, and it was a surprise," Derrick Green told Scout Tuesday evening.

"Coach [Bryan] McClendon hit me up on Facebook giving me his number, so I called, and he offered me. He talked to me for a while and we talked about UGA's running back depth, how I could be coming into a good situation there, and things like that."

One thing Coach McClendon said really caught Green's attention.

"He has been coaching running backs for five years at Georgia and he has already put three guys in the NFL, so that is big to me. That is where I want to go, so I know Coach McClendon could help me get there."

The 5-foot-11, 225 pound running back out of Richmond (Va.) Hermitage recently cut his list down to 13 schools, but UGA is not too late.

"I am definitely interested in them and I am planning to narrow my list down more pretty soon, and they will be on the list. I know they will make the cut.

"They run a pro-style offense and I like that a lot. I also like they history at running, the competition they play, and their program."

Green plans to visit the Dawgs later this summer.

"I am going to try to get down there soon to check them out. I talked to a couple of Georgia commits at The Opening and they had nothing but great things to say about the school and the coaches. Coach McClendon and I talked about me visiting and I know it will happen, I just don't know when yet."

Scout currently ranks Green the no. seven running back in the country and the no. 42 overall prospect.
