Big RB Claims PSU Offer

The Nittany Lion coaching staff is focused on bolstering the running back position in years to come. Among their targeted prospects for the position, Penn State has offered a big 230-pound southern back. Find out who he is and get his thoughts on PSU's program.

Pulaski Academy running back Broderick Green has received seven verbal offers early in the recruiting process. The big 230-pound back had an impressive junior season, and he is considering several schools.

"I have received offers from USC, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Kansas and Kansas State," said Broderick Green from Little Rock, (Ark.). "All of those offers have been verbals. I have not received any in writing yet."

"Right now I would have to say my favorites are USC, Virginia Tech, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Penn State and Texas. USC is my No. 1 school."

Green talks about his favorites.

USC: "The coaches are amazing. I love the football program. The facilities are real nice. They send a lot of players to the NFL. I would love to play there."

Virgina Tech: "I really like their football program. I talked to their coaches, and they seem real cool. They run the ball a lot. They have sent Kevin Jones and Lee Suggs to the NFL recently."

Florida: "I haven't talked to them, but I really like watching them play."

Georgia: "I like them a lot. They are a great SEC school. It's a nice program. I have a brother that lives in Georgia. I would be close to him."

Arkansas: "It's close to home, and I know the coaches real well. I know a lot of the players as well. I like the facilities, and it's a nice place. If I decided to stay close to home I would probably go to Arkansas."

Ole Miss: "They have sent me a few letters, and I have talked to them once before. It seems like a nice place."

Penn State: "It's a great rushing school. My brother's [Greg Wesley] teammate Larry Johnson came from there. Coach [Joe] Paterno is a great coach. It would be great to play for him. Penn State is a really good school."

Texas: "It's a great school, and it's close to home. It's a good academic and athletic program."

Green rushed for 1,664 yards with 21 touchdowns during his junior season. He recorded 48 receptions for 568 yards and five touchdowns as well.

It's obvious Green possesses a lot of strengths, but he knows a few areas of improvement before the senior season.

"I feel like my strength is running over people," he said. "I run hard. I am a power runner. I can cut, and I have nice footwork. I am a good blocker as well. I am an all-around good running back."

"I would like to improve my forty time before next season. I want to get it down to a 4.4. I am going to improve my footwork and strength as well."

The 6-1, 230-pound power back enjoys having a brother in the NFL , and he speaks with the star for the Kansas City Chiefs on a regular basis.

"It's real cool to have Greg as a brother," Green said. "He is always trying to help me out with different drills I can do, and he is trying to help me find the right college. I talk to him almost everyday."

Green will attend the All-American Combine at Ole Miss April 30.
