Recruiting 2018: Green Twins Like Wallaces

Twins in recruiting are always interesting and Oklahoma State just finished successfully recruiting the Wallace twins from Fort Worth South Hills and now the best set of twins playing high school football in the North Texas region for this fall will be the Greens at DeSoto. The two sets of football playing brothers have a lot in common.

Sunday at The Ford Center at The Star in Frisco was a little like deja vu when I started talking to DeSoto, Texas cornerback prospect German Green. Green missed all but one game last season with an ACL injury, but he was cleared to participate in the workouts at Nike's The Opening Regional along with his twin brother cornerback Gemon Green. The Green twins have great personalities, you can tell they really love each other and get along great as brothers. A different hairstyle has curtailed the fooling of friends and others as to which one is which. The knee brace took care of that on Sunday as well.

The sense of deja vu is how much there two are like the Wallace twins from Fort Worth South Hills that signed with Oklahoma State on Feb. 1. The biggest difference is the Wallaces are on the offensive side of the ball with Tylan, who recently set the school record in the long jump at 23 feet and four inches, playing wide receiver and Tracin, who was a dual threat quarterback, ready to stay at that position or look at other skill position options.

The similarities are the closeness of the two pairs of twins, that like the Wallaces, the Greens want to go to college together, and one of the twins in each set has had to deal with ACL surgeries. Tracin Wallace and German Green are the brothers fighting to get all the way back from knee injuries. The other thing is common is that Tylan Wallace is the best supporter for Tracin and Gemon the same for German in his comeback off injury.

Gemon Green is 6-1, 172 pounds and last season had 57 total tackles, 36 unassisted, two interceptions, and a whopping 25 passes defended. His offer list is big with Michigan, Oregon, TCU, Colorado State, UConn, Fresno, Houston, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas State, New Mexico, Oklahoma State, OU, Purdue, Texas Tech, UTSA, Tulsa, Utah State, and Wisconsin on his list.

German is 6-2, 173 pounds and the scholarship offers he has in common with Gemon are Oklahoma State, Fresno, Houston, Iowa State, New Mexico, and UTSA. German has offers from Colorado and North Texas as well.

By the way, Oklahoma State offered both Green brothers back in January, ahead of most of the their offers.

It will be interesting, but I could sure see if the Greens take official visits to Oklahoma State and Stillwater that their player hosts should be Tracin and Tylan Wallace.
