One of the top players in the state of Kentucky's 2009 class is Ohio State commitment Justin Green. Even though Green is committed to the Buckeyes, he's taking additional visit to verify his decision. One visit it to Kentucky. Green spoke with KSR about his plans.

After leading his Louisville (Ky.) Male squad to the state semifinals and a 9-4 record, Justin Green has turned his focus to recruiting. Even though he committed to Ohio State this past summer, Green wants to make sure he made the right choice. "I'm trying to make sure that's the place for me. I want to compare the programs and see the different traditions," said Green. "They are all different. I just want to keep my eyes opened."

Green, the number 21 corner in the nation, visited Ohio State last weekend. He has plans to visit Kentucky this weekend. He'll also visit Clemson on January 9th-11th. Alabama and Illinois are also in line to get visits after that.

It's easy to see why schools are so interested. Green's one of the top overall athletes in the nation. As a junior Green won the Kentucky state championship in the 100-meter, recording a 10.67 time. He got a second place in the 200-meter, running 22.06 seconds.

On the football field, Green is multi-talented as well. "I played all over the field. I think my best asset is my lateral movement and being able to find the ball," said Green. "I want to work on my speed and my strength. I also want to work on my cover skills and discipline," said Green. "I want to improve my cuts, my back-peddle; lots of things," he continued.

Kentucky is hoping to make a big splash this weekend with Green on campus. One of the Wildcat coaches has already made a big impact. "Me and Joker (Phillips) have built a good relationship. We connect really well. I like the overall atmosphere of Kentucky football," said Green.

So where could Green fit in on the roster? "Coach Phillips gave me a variety of position. Kick returner, punt returner, running back, receiver or defensive back. I think he's leaning more towards the offensive side of the ball," said Green.

Whatever happens, it will take something drastic to sway Green from the Buckeyes. "I don't know. I couldn't tell you what it would take. It would take an awful lot for me to decommit," said Green.

The 5-foot-11 Green is a four-star prospect according to Scout.com.
