Green Gets Home Visit

Reggie Green recaps his home visit with Pitt head coach Paul Chryst and running backs coach Desmond Robinson.

With National Letter of Intent Day just a few days away, this time of year can be stressful for coaches scrambling to add to their classes, and prospects facing a tough decision.

That was neither the case last week, as Reggie Green--who has been committed to Pitt since September--can just enjoy spending time with his future coaches, and talk about playing basketball this winter. The feeling is the same for Chryst and Robinson.

"It went really well," Green said. "Coach Robinson and Coach Chryst came by. We spent the whole time just talking about the program, and how the process goes from here.

"It's been good since I've been (committed) there for awhile. Signing day is around the corner, so I could just sit down with Coach, and let them know what's happening."

Part of what's happening is Green playing basketball this winter. He says he does it just for one more chance to represent his school. He says he's averaging 12 points a game, despite drawing double-teams sometimes. His school will hold a ceremony for signing day on Wednesday morning at 9 am. He will send his actual letter at 2 pm.

One other thing he talked about with Chryst and Robinson, will be playing receiver for Pitt.

"I'm going to be playing offense, and I'm pretty excited," Green said. "I knew that's what they wants me to do from the beginning, and that's what I wanted to do. I think its pretty cool. I will enjoy it."

Even though Robinson was his primary recruiter, he says he's gotten to know receivers coach Bobby Engram as well, and is looking forward to playing for him.

"He played in the league for 14 years, so he must know what he's doing," Green said. "He's a good person to learn from."

Green says it's been one of the things that's kept him high on Pitt for so long--his relationship with the coaching staff.

"Even when I went on my official visit, they all had good things to say," Green said. "Even after one of my football games, they'd call to check in. They're all really good guys, really good coaches."

In 2012, Green played quarterback. He threw for 681 yards and four touchdowns, but did the most damage on the ground. He rushed for 1,712 yards in 10 games on the season, with 19 rushing scores. On defense, he finished with 22 tackles and three interceptions.
