Heels jump in on Green

It wasn't too long ago that 4-star athlete, Stephen Green of Little Rock, Ark., claimed Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas State and Ole Miss as his five firm favorites. However, that has somewhat changed as the Tar Heels' recent run at Green has forced Ole Miss out and UNC in.

"I have been speaking to a couple of people about the school, and been looking on the internet at the school to see what's going on," stated the 6-0, 182-pounder that boasts a 4.46 forty-yard dash time. "People I have spoken to, one my friend's parents at school, he said he has been to the school and he said it was a beautiful campus and he said it was a great school overall, academics, sports, everything."

Green, who plays safety and running back at Pulaski Academy, could translate into a cornerback, safety, wide receiver or running back at the next level, but the Tar Heels' coaching staff want to see this speedy playmaker in their defensive backfield.

"Coach Hunter told me they want me as either a cornerback or safety," said Green.

Pulaski Academy, with Green playing both sides of the ball, is 11-2 and heading into the State Semifinals. Green's 1,300 rushing yards, 21 touchdowns, 86 tackles, three interceptions, 12 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and two sacks, have, without a doubt, helped Pulaski Academy this far into the playoffs.

This Arkansas standout is still in the process of setting up visits, but plans to schedule each of his five favorites especially a trip to Chapel Hill.

"I don't know much about (Chapel Hill), except the stuff I heard from other people so I want to learn on my visit," remarked Green. "But it seems like a pretty good school from what coach Hunter has told me."

Green stated a surprise verbal could come after any of his visits.
