Green has LSU offer

John Curtis cornerback Robby Green Jr. (6-0, 175, 4.5) has picked up five scholarship offers so far this spring, including a recent one from the hometown team.

"I've got offers from LSU, Clemson, Alabama, Ole Miss and Tulane," Green said. "LSU's offer came about two weeks ago. They actually called my dad because I couldn't get to a phone, and he relayed the message to me."


As a junior for the Class 2A state champs, Green picked off four passes, broke up 15 more and logged 25 tackles.


His father, Robby senior, played safety for the Tigers in the 80's, and the younger Green said he was excited when the offer came from the team he has always followed.


"The offer just kind of popped up," he said. "It really excited me. I've been talking to coach Larry Porter about once a week or so, and to coach Miles every now and then. They've said they really like my style of play and that they have a lot of interests in me."


Green had planned on going to Baton Rouge last week for the Tigers' spring game, but said he was unable to because of a wedding.


"I'm real familiar with the LSU program," he said. "I didn't get to go to the spring game, but I've definitely been there before."



Although Green certainly has some interest in LSU, he said that he does not have any favorites just yet, and that he will not really focus in on narrowing his search until after his senior season is over.


"I've been getting a ton on mail from everywhere," he told Tiger Rag. "I'm getting text messages from places like UCLA and some others."


Right now, Green is focused on playing a key role for the John Curtis track team, on which he runs the 4x100, 4x200, and does the high jump. The team will turn up the heat next week, however, as it will start to get more serious with its spring football workouts.


"Right now we are just running and trying to get back in shape," Green said. "Once the baseball team finishes up, we'll start real practices."


Once spring ball is wrapped up, Green wants to spend the summer checking out camps, hoping to go all over the country.


"I'm going to go back to LSU's camp," he said. "I also want to go out to the West Coast and go to camps at UCLA and USC. Then come back and go to Ole Miss and Alabama. Those aren't official yet, but they are the ones I like off the top of my head."
