Green next in line at Central Catholic?

Notre Dame signed two prospects from Pittsburgh Central Catholic last cycle. Now the Irish are interested in another. Junior defensive lineman David Green has drawn interest from Notre Dame and hopes to hear more from the Irish.

Notre Dame has had a lot of success recruiting Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School.

The Irish signed four-star linebacker David Adams and three-star defensive lineman Kurt Hinish earlier this month and have already targeted another Viking for 2018.

Three-star defensive end David Green has already talked with Irish head coach Brian Kelly and linebackers coach Clark Lea. He hopes to hear more from them in the future.

“I got a chance to talk to coach Kelly and coach Lea a couple weeks ago,” said Green, a 6-foot-2, 265-pounder. “They told me they were going to keep me on their radar.”

Green, who holds offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, Rutgers, West Virginia and a host of Mid-American Conference schools, also has drawn interest from Penn State and Pittsburgh.

As a junior, Green did a little bit of everything for the Vikings.

He played defensive end and linebacker and also lined up at fullback.

He finished the year with 27 tackles and three sacks on defense. On offense, Green carried the ball 33 times for 362 yards and scored one touchdown and also hauled in a pair of passes for 39 yards.

Green credits Adams and Hinish for helping him to develop into the player he is today.

“Those are two great guys on and off the field,” he said. “I couldn't thank them enough. They showed me how to play Central Catholic football, especially Kurt being that we were both on the defensive line and maybe being the best dynamic duo ever. They always helped me on my game every day. They would correct me on my mistakes and it's been a true honor and blessing to be able to suit up with them for two years. Maybe we can do it again soon.” Top Stories
