"I talked to Coach Canales about twice a week. I called him before the Kansas game to tell him I'm really excited to be a Bull and that I would be watching the game. I watch their games every week."
James Green committed to the Bulls at their first annual SuperBull. He said he knew he South Florida was the place for him after interacting with the coaching staff and being on the field at Raymond James. Their offensive gameplan is what convinced the 3-Star receiver that Tampa was the place for him.
"When I watch USF play I focus on how they plays as a team. I see how they play when they are leading and how they come back from a deficit. Then I watch how they use their receivers in 4 and 5 wide sets. I look to see what receivers are getting in the game, those sorts of things."
As a junior James Green had 3 TD catches for Dr Kropp down in Miami. This year he transferred schools and is playing his senior year at Tallahassee Leon.
"I have 2 touchdowns, 14 receptions for about 240 yards. I also play defense and I have 8 tackles."
Green is good friends with two other USF commits that he used to play ball with before transferring up north – Victor Marc and Ricardo Dixon. Green says the trio talks on the phone regularly and most of the talk centers around the Bulls.
"I talk to them almost everyday." Adding, "We talk about how much we love Tampa, the facilities, about how the coaches connect with the kids and how they can help you on and off the field."
What did the trio think of the big win over Kansas?
"I called Ricardo back and forth during the game. Then we were on the phone for the game winning field goal. We were so happy they pulled it out because everyone was saying Kansas was the better team."
Now that the Bulls are 5-0, Green feels that the sky is the limit for this year's team.
"I think they have a chance to go to a BCS bowl this year, I just like how they are playing and I believe in this team."
Before committing to the Bulls James Green received a lot of interest from other teams and was offered by schools like South Carolina, UCF, Auburn and UNC to name a few. He says he still gets phone calls from other coaches, but feels like he's made a good decision.
"I just tell these other coaches that I'm firm and I don't plan on taking any other visits besides my trip to USF."
Green is also getting it done in the classroom he has a 2.8 GPA and expects to be fully qualified. James won't be able to make it to the Pitt game but he says he's looking forward to seeing the Bulls on national TV again. Green is working on setting an official visit date with the USF coaching staff, once a date is scheduled we'll have another update with the 6-foot-2, 195 pound receiver. < BR>
