Believe the Hype on Green? MoMass says yes...

ATHENS – Mohamed Massaquoi could be forgiven for not buying the A.J. Green hype.

Massaquoi is a senior wide receiver with 100 catches and 1,362 yards. Green hasn't played a down of college football, but he's all Georgia fans want to talk about this summer.

So, does Massaquoi harbor any resentment? Hardly.

"He's a stud," Massaquoi said. "I think he can be as good as he wants to be, as good as this conference has ever seen."

That's what Bulldog fans have been hoping since Green made his verbal commitment to the team. He was rated the No. 2 wide receiver in the nation by Scout.com last year and finished his career at Summerville, S.C., with 5,279 receiving yards.

"I think the guy is definitely going to live up to the hype," Massaquoi said. "He brings a lot to the table, and he's getting better every day. He's a long guy, who is fast as well. He is very confident in everything that he does."

Green is humble despite the hype, and there has been no need for the veterans to remind him of his place, Massaquoi said.

"You never want to break a guy down, with a guy like that who is very talented and who is going to contribute, you never want to say, ‘Look you're a freshman,'" Massaquoi said. "You just want to lead them the best that you can and make sure he is able to achieve all his goals."

Massaquoi also has been impressed this summer with Tavarres King, who, unlike Green, participated in spring practice.

"Really that whole freshman class that came in is very impressive," Massaquoi said. "Georgia did a great job of recruiting, and I think we're building for the future."
