"Speedy" Greene Gives The Latest

Emmanuel Greene recently completed a week-long visit to Ohio State, and the visit only seemed to strengthen his fondness for the Buckeyes. The 2017 wide receiver from IMG Academy is one of the top underclassmen in Florida.

Ohio State has long been at or near the top of the list for 2017 wide receiver Emmanuel Greene, and the Bradenton (FL) speedster is fresh off an extended unofficial visit to check out the Buckeyes.

Greene, 5-foot-9, 165-pounds, would seem to be a perfect fit for Urban Meyer's offense at Ohio State. He has speed to burn, and the four-star talent can certainly see himself in the Buckeye system.

"I had a great trip to Ohio State, and things went very well for me," Greene stated. "I got to see everything there, and I was very comfortable with the surroundings up there. I spoke to Coach Meyer for a while, and he told me how he wants to develop our relationship even more."

"It was a dead period for most of the visit, so I couldn't see the coaches much, but I got to hang out with a lot of the players," he added. "I was with Damon Arnette, Johnnie Dixon, Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson, and a bunch of other guys who were really cool to me. They were all like big brothers to me."

"They all talked to me about how I can fit in with the offense, and I think I could fit in there really well," he continued. "I could feel the brotherhood they all have together. The visit showed me that Ohio State is still very high for me, and it made it even stronger. I might go back for Friday Night Lights, but I'm not sure."

There are several other schools in the mix for Greene, who still has two seasons of high school football remaining.

"I would say Florida, Miami, Clemson, Tennessee, West Virginia, and a few others are still high on my list," Greene admitted. "I might be going up to Florida'S Friday Night Lights to check out their program. I want to see how the new staff does up there."

"Miami is also a big favorite of mine, and I'm very close to (wide receivers coach) Kevin Beard," he concluded. "I'm going to commit whenever it feels right for me, and I'm not sure when that might be."
