Green Considers Options

Arkansas running back Broderick Green is one of the most talked about players in the entire country right now. After making a commitment to USC he has taken visits to Ohio State and Penn State.

Broderick Green, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound running back from Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Ark., has a tough decision to make in the near future.

At the beginning of the recruiting process he made a non binding verbal agreement to sign with Southern Cal, but as signing day approaches he has not entirely closed the door on Ohio State or Penn State.

Green, who was one of the 80 players who were selected to participate in the U.S Army All-American Bowl Game, has toured the campuses of Ohio State and Penn State over the last two weekends.

As anyone can imagine, the more that a player gets to see the tougher the decision is to make. Pulaski Academy Head Coach Kevin Kelley caught up with for his latest thoughts on the situation.

"He had a really nice time this weekend at Ohio State," Coach Kelley informed. "These last two visits have really opened his eyes, and have given him a whole lot to think about."

Green is not ready to make a decision at this point, and he plans to sit down with the people closest to him and discuss what is best for him and his future.

"Broderick and I were just talking, and we think that we are all going to sit down some time Monday night, maybe have some dinner, and discuss what he is going to do," the coach reported. "We will probably let the coaches know of his decision then. We will not be having the thing where he puts the three hats out there on the table."

As a senior, Green rushed for 2,042 yards and 23 touchdowns and added an additional 545 yards and four touchdowns in the passing game to earn All-State and All-Conference honors.
