'That's Where I'll Be At'

Wolfpack commitment Chad Green has had a great sophomore season at Hinds Community College in Mississippi.

Green entered the season labeled a preseason All-American by several publications, and he's trying to lead Hinds to a conference championship.

"We're doing good," Chad Green said. "We're 8-1 now, and we have a big game coming up."

"I don't really know my stats, but I've been going wide open," he added. "I've been playing linebacker a little, but it's mainly been defensive end for me."

Green, who originally signed with NC State in 2003 but failed to qualify academically, says that he's been unable to talk with them as much as he'd like, but he's still firmly committed to the Wolfpack.

"I haven't talked to them much, but my parents have been though," Green said. "I'm still committed and everything. That's where I'll be at."

Despite his commitment to NC State, Green's receiving attention from some of the nation's elite football programs. Considered one of the top junior college defensive ends in the country, Green says that he will take a few official visits before making his way to NC State.

"I haven't taken any visits, but I'm going to take a few before I come back," he said. "I've got a whole lot of options. Tennessee, LSU, and one of the Florida schools have offered. USC's sent me some letters too, but I don't know if they have offered yet.

Teammate Greg Peterson, also committed to NC State, starts at strongside defensive end for Hinds, and he's been playing well also.

"It's been fun and crazy playing with him," Green said. "He's taking care of business too. He's working on the other side from me."

Green hopes to enroll at NC State next summer, where his brother, David Green, is a walk-on safety.
