Little Rock, Ark., running back Broderick Green remains committed to USC. Yet the 6-foot-2, 230-pound product of Pulaski Academy says he maintains interest in two Big Ten rivals — Penn State and Ohio State. Get the latest on Green's unique situation in our update.

Little Rock, Ark., running back Broderick Green's schedule for the month of January will likely read like a novel by the time all of his plans are in place. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound product of Pulaski Academy has already participated in a week of practice and playing in the Army All-American game in San Antonio last week. It appears as though the rest of January will be busy, as well.

“I am still planning on visiting both Ohio State and Penn State in January,” Green said. “I haven't set the exact dates for the visits yet, but it is still something I definitely want to do. I am sure all three coaching staffs will come visit me for an in-home visit as well at some point.”

Green maintains that he is still committed to USC, but he does want to check out both Ohio State and Penn State just to be sure.

“I just want to make sure I go see all three schools to make sure I am making the right decision,” Green said. “Basically those three schools are the top three schools in the country, which is why I am still considering all three.”

Green has already taken an official visit to USC recently and he did come away impressed.

“I would really have to be blown away by Penn State or Ohio State to change my decision, but it is something that could happen,” Green said.

Green has been visited at his high school by USC head coach Pete Carroll, Penn State assistant coach Brian Norwood and Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel in recent months. Nittany Lion head coach Joe Paterno was recovering from leg surgery at the time and was not able to make recruiting trips.

“I think they visited sometime in December,” Green said. “It was the week of final exams at my school.”

Green finished his senior year at Pulaski Academy with some impressive statistics. He ran for 2,096 yards and 23 rushing touchdowns. In addition, Green hauled in 42 receptions for 542 yards and four receiving touchdowns.
