Green Planning to Visit NC State

Cranford (NJ) athlete Reggie Green is a major target for State, and he's planning a visit to Raleigh. Pack Pride has the latest on his recruitment.

Reggie Green has never visited NC State but he plans on doing that this summer.

He hasn't picked a date out yet so that's something he wants to do in the next week or two. Even though the 6-3, 190-pound athlete from Cranford (NJ) has never been to NC State he actually has a couple of ties to the school that make the Wolfpack an attractive option.

"They've offered and I've been talking to them," Green said of the Pack.

"I like the school a lot. One of my friends that used to go to my church, Tyson Chandler, goes to NC State. He's on the football team so that's one thing I like about them.

"Also, one of my best friends now is going there for baseball. So I know both of those guys and I know they both like NC State."            

Jerry Petercuskie is recruiting Green for the Pack and the Garden State athlete said he believes the offer came in sometime in early May.

Petercuskie hasn't had quite as long to build a relationship with Green as some other coaches but it sounds like he's done a good job in a short amount of time.

"He's a really nice guy," Green said of Petercuskie. "He talks about the character aspect and what he wants in a football player beyond football. He does talk about football too but he talks a lot about the character aspect. He's also told me a lot about what I would be doing down there day to day."

Rutgers, Pitt, Michigan State, Boston College, Temple and UMass are the other schools that have offered Green and he said he hasn't narrowed his list yet.

Some schools are recruiting Green as an athlete, telling him they will decide when he gets to school what position he would play. Green says he has the ability to play corner, safety or wide receiver.

NC State has even mentioned the possibility of putting him at outside linebacker.

As a junior, Green accounted for 2,300 total yards of offense and 24 touchdowns from his quarterback position. He is currently rated a two star prospect and the No. 87 safety in the nation by
