Green Recognized in Athens

ATHENS – Stacy Searels and Rodney Garner recognized Shawn Green.

As it turns out they had seen him before at some of Georgia's practices.

"They said they were excited to see my film," Green said." Coach Searels said he wanted me to come out to a camp this summer, and I said I would."

For the time being, however, those two and the rest of Georgia's coaching staff are focused on the class of 2009, Green said. When they take a look at Green's film they will notice a space-eating defensive tackle decked out in Grayson green and gold.

"The trip to Georgia was very nice. I liked it a lot," Green said. "I could picture myself going there. I liked the campus and the coaches. I like that they make sure to check on your grades all of the time. They said they would do their best to get you to graduate. It was a good atmosphere."

Green also took in Georgia's dorms, and, like most Bulldog recruits, he came away impressed.

"I was looking to see the living area, and I was impressed with it. Everything was awesome – you could choose from everything," he said.

Also, Green wanted to know about the medical staff – just how do they take care of their players?

"I also liked the medical support they give because I have played an entire season with a dislocated shoulder," he said. "They make sure to take care of you, and that's important to me."

Green is looking for an academic school with a winning tradition, he said.

"I am also interested in coaches that actually care about what's going on with you," he said.

"I may go back up there for another visit, but it is hard to know when. They said they wanted to check out my highlight tape and get back with me," he said.

Until then Green said he plans to visit Wake Forest and Western Kentucky for their junior days.
