Greene Enjoys Trip to Raleigh

Pack Pride catches up with three-star Irmo (SC) tailback Mustafa Greene after his weekend visit to NC State.

Three-star running back Mustafa Greene made the drive from his Irmo, South Carolina home to NC State and back this weekend, and he was there first-hand to witness the Pack's dramatic comeback victory over Pittsburgh.

The 6-0, 200-pound back from Columbia High School has had a productive senior season, helping his squad to a 4-1 record through five games. Greene has rushed for 983 yards and 14 touchdowns in those contests, so he's on a blistering pace and should have eye-popping numbers by the end of the year.

What did he think of the game on Saturday at Carter-Finley Stadium?

"It was nice," Greene said. "It was a nice environment. Of course, they came back and won 38-31. The coaches treated me and my guys real good. I got a chance to talk to them and they were basically informing me about the school. Nothing too much. But I had a good time.

"It's a great school. They made me feel at home."

Greene said he has been in more contact with NC State, Syracuse and Rutgers than any other schools, though he went out of his way to point out that doesn't mean those are his favorites.

"Those are just the main ones I've been speaking to," he said.

He indicated he does not have any favorites at this point, and it might be a while before he puts together such a list. With offers from those schools as well as Clemson, Maryland, South Carolina and Tennessee, Greene certainly has a lot to think about.

"I think I have one official visit set," he said. "I should be taking an official to Rutgers in December. I don't know about the others yet, though. I haven't made up my mind.

"I probably won't make my decision until about January. That's when the Under Armour game is and I'll decide there."

Greene said he would probably narrow his list to five by the end of the season.

He is rated the No. 41 running back in the nation by Scout.com while recruiting analyst Tom Lemming consider’s him the No. 20 tailback in the country.
