Green, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive end and tight end, picked up an offer from Rutgers this week to go along with the one he had from Florida International. His coach, Bill Gierke, said Northwestern also offered recently.
"I spent some time talking to the (Rutgers) coaching staff this week and I really like them,'' Green said. "I'm going to call the coach and see if I can get up there and check the place out. I hear it is a really nice campus.''
Rutgers learned about Green because of its dogged recruiting of Florida, and because head coach Greg Schiano developed a relationship with Edgewater coach Bill Gierke when Schiano was an assistant at Miami.
"He knows about (Rutgers) after he talked to them (Wednesday),'' Gierke said. "He's planning on making a visit. I think it will be over the summer.''
"I really want to leave Florida, if it's at all possible,'' he said. "I'm trying to explore something new.''
Green made his mark as a junior playing on defense, but he added tight end to his repertoire as a junior. By the end of the season he began embracing the position.
He had four touchdowns catches, also improved his blocking as the season progressed, partly because he began understanding the position better.
"I really like (tight end),'' Green said. "I just scratched the surface playing there. I feel like I can go far playing tight end. I like defense, too, so I could play there.
"I feel like I'm more athletic than a lot of the people who would be covering me. I really didn't care for tight end that much, and this isn't the best thing to say, but when I had success, it started to open my eyes.''
However, the contact many schools are having with Green center around him playing either defensive end or linebacker.
"Deion is the type of kid that could play multiple positions,'' Gierke said. "He runs extremely well. He's a very athletic kid. For me, he plays (defensive end), he plays linebacker, he plays tight end, he plays wide receiver.
"It wouldn't surprise me if the young man makes a decision pretty quick here. He's not a flamboyant, ‘Me' type of kid. I think if he finds what he's looking for, I think he'll make a decision pretty quick.''
