Kevin Green CB- 6'1-180lbs 4.4 – 40


The USF coaching staff has several priorities for '08 and with starters Mike Jenkins and Trae Williams graduating after this year, Cornerback is one of highest.


Kevin Green, is a 6'1, 180 pound cornerback from Rickards High School in Tallahassee who is quietly becoming one of the top prospects in Florida may be the one that fits the bill.


"I think he's going to be the best cornerback in Florida this year" said Coach Corey Fuller


In a stellar junior campaign Green had 4 interceptions, with one returned for a score, 54 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 6 pass break ups.


"I think he's going to double that this year," Said Coach Corey Fuller.  "He and his teammates have been working out like maniacs this year, they really want it. They only won 4 games the last two years, and are due for a great year."


Green has speed running in the 4.4 range, and running a 10.7-100 for the track team and a place on the Florida State Honor Roll.


"What makes me stand apart from other players is my speed and my work ethic. I'm a very hard worker in practice and it helps prepare me on the field. I'm a very physical, but am also a shut down corner during game time. "


The interest in the Rickards corner was there as a sophomore, but has really started picked up this spring.


"Arkansas, South Florida, Purdue, and LSU have been showing the most interest."


Green who already has offers from Arkansas and Purdue got another offer Friday


"I have three Scholarship offers right now, one from South Florida, one from Purdue, and one from Arkansas. I got the offer from South Florida Friday."


Green says that USF has been recruiting him since he was a junior, and that they like him at cornerback.


 "The head Coach Jim Leavitt came by our spring game, our Jamboree and said that he was very impressed with me."


With several offers in hand and plenty of other interest, the talented Corner has a list of favorites.


"Right now my favorites are LSU, South Florida, Purdue, Arkansas, Florida, FSU, and ECU."


Green said all schools are recruiting him at corner, at least for now.


LSU: I like their program and they defense the play there.


South Florida: I like the system they run there. There a pretty good program that has come a long way. Also they recently won a bowl game against ECU, and ECU is another school that is recruiting me.


Purdue: There a pretty good program and they've gone to nine bowl games over the last ten years and they got a good educational program


Arkansas: They have some good athletes, and I have a former teammate that plays for them, and he telling me a lot of good things."


Green also knows what matters to him in making a decision


 "What's most important to me is my education, and securing my future. So how the school is academically makes a big difference. Also, how their football program is run. I'm competitive, and want to be on a competitive team. At the same time I want to feel comfortable where I'm at."


Green has already started what should be a busy summer camp season after returning from a trip to LSU this past weekend.


"I went to the LSU camp this past weekend. It was pretty nice, I got to talk to the defensive back coach and the head coach and they said they were pretty interested in me."


"I went to South Florida unofficially back in January. I really liked the city and campus there."


Green isn't sure of his camp schedule but is going to make the rounds.


 "In July, I plan on going to camps at Florida, FSU and South Florida, and maybe a few others."


Green says that there isn't a time table on when he makes a decision .


"I'm not sure when I'll decide, right now I'm concentrating on this year."


Stick with as we follow Kevin through the camp season and up until signing day.
