GoPokes TV: Green's Favorite Color Is Orange

A.J. Green of DeSoto, Texas was one of several committed players visiting Oklahoma State this past weekend. The standout cornerback visits with Robert Allen about the visit and what he likes about OSU.

Oklahoma State has had a number of players named Green wear the orange and black over the years such as four-year letter winner wide receiver Jarrod Green, who caught passes from current Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy. There was also another four-year letterman and all-conference linebacker Mike Green.

Now another Green is headed to Stillwater. A.J. Green is a pretty good cornerback out of DeSoto, Texas who has the reputation as a shut-down player in coverage. 

"I give credit to my wide receivers coach, coach Orr, and our wide receivers because we go against some of the best wide receivers in practice and they have some of the best wide receivers and they make me better. Technically, I think I am one of the most technically sound DB out here," Green said very casually. "I'm not trying to be cocky or nothing but I just feel that about myself."

Green, who is 6-1 and 168 pounds, has some muscle to pack on his frame but he knows that will come. He got a good look at the weight room and the strength program at OSU under Rob Glass and he knows that is where he will continue to improve. Overall, Green said he was very happy with his visit and very happy with his decision.

"I had a great time," Green said. "I don't know how to explain it. It was remarkable and I love bonding with the players and Z (Za'Carrius Green, another Green) was my host and he was a great host. I knew him back in school at Duncanville High School and he was like a big brother to me."

Green will focus this spring on working out and improving in football. He said he can't wait to sign on signing day, make it official, and start making plans to move to Stillwater in the summer where he will room with his high school teammate running back L.D. Brown.
