Did Green inform the Memphis staff about his decision?
"Yes sir, they were just real business like about
it. They told me that they understood, wished me the best, and thanked me for
giving them time to find another center."
Who else was involved in Green's recruitment?
"I had offers from Memphis, Southern Mississippi,
Arkansas State, and Ole Miss was the only SEC school who offered me. That is who
I was waiting on. I have been wanting to play for Ole Miss since I was a little
kid and now I have the opportunity to fulfill my life time dream. I just want
to help Coach Nutt win his first championship at Ole Miss."
The Southaven product transferred to N' West CC in '06 and has started every game during his two year stint for the Rangers.
"I started out at center when I came to N' West CC and played center, guard, and tackle last year. This year I started all ten games at center."
"Me, Daniel Thomas, and Patrick Trahan all earned 1st Team All-Region, State, and I earned 1st Team All-American and 1st Team Academic All-American by JC Gridwire as well."
Why is Green better suited for center than tackle or guard?
to say I am able to do many things to control the game from center. I call the
other fronts, call out the blitzes, and the protection coverages. I am smart enough
to recognize what we need to be in, and I am aggressive but in control enough
to take care of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd levels. My toughness and my will to win
also helps too."
Brandon will graduate in December and is expected to sign with the Rebels on December 19th.
