2018 Houston (Tex.) Heights defensive back Jalen Green is one of the most sought after recruits in the country, sitting at the No. 22 overall prospect heading into his senior year. LSU is one of the schools right in the mix for the Texas product, where he visited on Saturday.
"It was pretty good. They showed me around. All the coaches were gone so I didn't really talk to them," Green told Scout. "I've been up there numerous times though."
Defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and head coach Ed Orgeron are leading the way on his recruitment and they've made it clear that the four-star is a priority for the Tigers, talking with them about once a week.
"The coaches, how they show love and stuff like that. They check in with my family too," the 6-1, 170-pound cornerback said. "I can be a big factor in their defense. They say they'll put me wherever they can to get on the field. They put a lot of defensive backs in the league."
The No. 4 cornerback in the country said that Raymond has built a strong bond with him during his recruitment.
"He's a real cool dude and he checks in on me to see how I'm doing. He treats me like a son," Green said. http://www.scout.com/college/lsu/story/1769493-5-star-wr-talks-lsu-visit...
Penn State, TCU, Texas and USC are a few schools standing out with Green set to release his top schools soon.
The No. 2 cornerback in Texas is trying to make it back to LSU for the spring game and doesn't have any other visits on the schedule right now. The soft-spoken cornerback plans a National Signing Day decision.
SCOUT EVALUATION OF JALEN GREEN:
"Green is a physical corner who is not afraid to come up and press the action with receivers at the line of scrimmage. Green has good size and speed. He is pretty big already physically so he can take on or match up with the big-bodied type of wide receivers. We like the confidence that he plays with and that will only grow as his experience on the field grows. He will continue to work on his technique and breaks to become quicker and play a bit cleaner with his aggressive style. His ability to run and change direction combined with size and physicality are what makes him a high level recruit." - Greg Powers
