Greene Has Eight On His Mind

St. Thomas Aquinas High School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) just finished spring practice which means that wide receiver Rashad Greene will be able to pay a little more attention to recruiting. He has 26 scholarship offers, but Rashad has eight schools the will be his focal point moving forward.

After a slow start to recruiting, Rashad Greene (6-foot-1, 170-pounds) has piled up 26 scholarship offers and most of them are from the premiere football programs in the country. As spring football winds down, Rashad is just about ready to release his top group of schools.

"I have about eight schools that I'm focusing on," Greene said. "I'm not ready to let that out yet, so I'm going to hold on to it, but Notre Dame will be in my top-eight. I talked to them and told them that I'd come up for their camp if I'm able to, but if not I'm going to take an official visit up there.

"We had out spring game (Wednesday). It went good. It was inter-squad, offense versus defense. I caught a couple passes and ran a reverse. I didn't get in the end zone, because the defense did a real good job. We were also trying to establish the running game because we lost our top two running backs from last year and we were trying to get the young guys to step up. We know can pass, so we were just trying to get them the ball."

Now that the school year is about to end and Greene doesn't have the demands of spring football, he's going to move recruiting off the back burner.

"I'm turning my attention to recruiting and I'm going to focus on the main schools that I'm considering," Greene explained. "I'm just about to narrow it down and tell the other schools that I appreciate their time and for recruiting me.

"I wasn't able to see any schools this spring, so I'm going to try to go the camps of the schools in my top-eight. I told most of the coaches that I'd stop by for a day, do a couple drills and do some 1-on-1s. I'll keep moving from camp to camp and then get back home and talk it over with the important people that are involved in my decision."
