Simms Picks Up Commitment #2 For ISU

Iowa State picked up their second commitment of the young 2007 recruiting season on Wednesday when Anthony Green, a 6'0 220 pound LB out of Missouri City, Texas committed to Iowa State outside LB coach Shawn Simms over the phone. Get the scoop here.

Green was offered his scholarship on Monday of this week and it didn't take long for him to pick up the phone and commit to Simms on Thursday.


"We talked over the phone. He received my tape because he couldn't come down. He liked it. Here we are. Oh man I'm excited. I'm excited about being in the Big 12," Green said. "I'm just really excited about the commitment. I'm ready to play in the next level."


Last season Green played sparingly on the defensive line, but Green plans on moving to the middle linebacker position during his senior campaign.


"As a matter of fact I'm standing up now. I've switched from DE to move to the linebacker position so you all will see me there this season," Green said.


So when Green takes the field for Iowa State, what should Cyclone fans expect to see? They should expect a team first, energy-filled sacking machine according to Green.


"I love my team. I play for my team as well as me, but I play for my team first. It's a team game. That's what football is all about," Green said. "I'm really energetic when I'm in the game. I get fired up."


In his junior season, Green didn't play as much as he would have liked but he made the most of the time that he did get.


"I didn't get a lot of playing time my junior year but when I did I made a lot of big plays. I really played a lot on special teams. I forced a few fumbles. We made it to the first round of the playoffs and lost but I had 10 tackles and two sacks at the DT position," Green said.


Green also talked about how his early commitment to the Cyclones has given him an extra push to go out and have a blast during his senior season.


"I just want to have fun during my last year of high school. I want to set the tone. I want to set the bar a little bit higher for the guys around me," Green said.


Green said that he was being contacted by other schools but since Iowa State offering first had a big impact on him.


"I had a few schools talking to me about offering but Iowa State was the first."
