ATH Zach Greene

5-10, 165 pounds, 4.4-seconds in the 40-yard dash

Leesville Road High School, Raleigh, NC

Junior Stats: As a junior, Greene hauled in 45 catches for 704 yards and eight touchdowns. On defense he had 50 tackles and three picks. Greene also chipped in two touchdowns on kick returns.

Potential Ranking: Currently unrated by Scout, Greene will likely begin as a three-star prospect and a possible top 15 player in North Carolina.

The early word: Greene is a very talented prospect that has the versatility to contribute on offense, defense and special teams. He could play any of the kick return spots and has the ability to play slot receiver as well but may be best suited at cornerback. He had a great showing at NC State’s camp last year and impressed them enough to earn an early scholarship offer.

Scholarship offers: NC State

Other schools involved: Duke and Auburn are currently showing heavy attention followed by Stanford, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, UNC and Wake Forest.

Top Schools: Doesn’t publically claim any favorites but NC State is believed to be a heavy contender

Timeline for a decision: It wouldn’t be a huge shock if Greene announced at any time but it appears he will make a decision before next season starts so he can focus on his senior year.

Interesting side-note: Greene’s QB this year will be Logan Bible, son of NC State offensive coordinator Dana Bible.

NC State recruiting coach: Dana Bible

NC State connections: There are plenty. Greene’s father is a former Wolfpack player and he has grown up around the Pack. Greene’s former teammate and friend, Taylor Gentry, is walking on at NC State. The Pack was the first school to take notice of Greene and offer a scholarship.

Behind the scenes: In all honesty, State missing on Greene is almost unthinkable.

Wolfpack Visits: Greene has made several visits to NC State and is very familiar with the school, inside and out. He is scheduled to attend junior day and should be back at camp again this summer.
