Arkansas DB checks out LSU

Perhaps the top safety prospect in Arkansas is Stephen Green of Pulaski Academy in Little Rock. The 6-foot, 175-pounder has been to three camps this summer with his latest stops at Arkansas and LSU.<br><br> tabbed Green as the eighth best safety prospect in the country and there are plenty of college coaches who would agree with that ranking.

"I have seven offers," Green told Tiger Rag. "Arkansas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Boston College, Arkansas State and Iowa have all offered. I'm just taking it in stride but Arkansas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Iowa and Boston College really standout."

LSU coach Nick Saban has offered scholarships to two of Green's teammates, offensive lineman Jonathan Luigs and linebacker Matt Stoltz, and Green is hoping that Saban will soon extend him an invitation to join the Tigers' program.

"If they offer, they will be in my top five," Green said of the Tigers. "That is who I'm waiting on. If I get one from them then I'm cool. I won't need any more offers."

Green pulled a hamstring at Arkansas' one-day camp, but he still attended LSU's latest camp to show the Tiger coaching staff that he is worth the offer.

He tried to go through the drills with the rest of the prospects at LSU's camp but his hamstring would not allow him to take part. However, he said he still got to see what he wanted from the coaching staff.

"I heard about LSU from Jon and Matt," Green said. "When coach (Kirk) Doll showed us around the campus it blew me away. He showed us the facilities and told us what the players do everyday, and he showed us the academic center. We got to see the lake and there was people running around it. It looks like a place you can relax at."

Tiger Stadium was another thing that caught his attention.

"It was huge," Green said. "I'd like to see it packed full of people."
