Greene, who moved from safety to weakside linebacker in the spring, led the Big East in tackles and led the Rutgers defense to holding conference opponents to 19.7 points per game. Greene finished second on the team with 11 TFLs, made two sacks and forced two fumbles. He shares the award with Cincinnati's Derek Wolfe.
