Interesting Tidbit: He credits his DeSoto teammates on offense, wide receivers and the wide receivers coach with his success as a corner. He has four cousins playing pro or college sports including Alex Harding playing for the WNBA Phoenix Mercury.

Primary Recruiting Coach: Tim Duffie.

Scouting Report and Projection: His own self-evaluation is sufficient enough here. “I see myself as a cover corner. Just tell me who to cover and I will take them out of the game,” Green said. He did that throughout his career in high school and because of it the receivers he covered were not targeted as much. He only weighs around 165 pounds and that is light. He will need to be in the weight room and will need to make best friends with the strength staff. Building up his body is the one obstacle between him and playing time almost immediately.
