UNC Offers S.C. Offensive Lineman

Noah Green departed North Carolina's camp in June without a UNC scholarship offer. Less than three months later, the Tar Heels' staff has decided to offer the 2015 offensive lineman.

Green, a 6-foot-4, 265-pounder from Boiling Springs (S.C.), learned about the UNC offer from his head coach, Rick Tate.

UNC is the fifth school to offer Green. He has also collected offers from Clemson, East Carolina, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt.

"I like North Carolina," Green said. "It's a great place.

"I'm not making any decisions about where I'm going to go or where I'm leaning."

Green doesn't plan on naming favorite schools – or committing, for that matter – until after he's able to sit down and discuss his recruitment with his parents. He's unsure when such a meeting would take place.

Camping at UNC provided Green an opportunity to work out under Chris Kapilovic, the Tar Heels' offensive line coach.

"I like him," Green said. "He definitely knows what he's talking about. He's a good coach."

Since receiving the UNC offer, Green has spoken to both Kapilovic and Gunter Brewer, his primary recruiter.

"They just want to get me up for a game and get me up there for a visit to see more of the campus," Green said.

Following the June camp, Green received a quick tour of UNC. He's going to try to attend a game in Chapel Hill this season, but is unsure the likelihood of such a visit coming to fruition. A lot, according to Green, depends on his father's schedule.

Green is in the processing of finalizing details to attend this Saturday's ACC matchup between Clemson and Wake Forest. It will be the third game he has attended at Clemson this season (Georgia and South Carolina State are the others). He was in Columbia this past Saturday for South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt.

"The Clemson-Georgia game was just ridiculous," Green said. "It was a great crowd and great atmosphere."

Green says frequent appearances at Clemson and South Carolina, both in-state schools, are a matter of proximity.

"I don't think [staying in-state] is that big of a deal to me," Green said. "I'm open to most places. They're an hour down the road."

Green has been starting at left tackle for Boiling Springs since his sophomore season.
