Green excited about latest offer

He's going to be a junior this fall, but Dayton QB Cody Green is already accumulating a list of potential suitors at the college level. He talks to Aggie Websider's David Sandhop about his recent trip to College Station and where the Aggies stand on his list.

While all eyes were on the seniors heading into the Game Night Camp at Texas A&M last week, the post-camp buzz centered around a junior signal caller who turned many heads, including the Texas A&M coaching staff. Dayton (TX) quarterback Cody Green showed off a strong arm and crisp, accurate passes during the one-day camp, and his performance garnered him a scholarship offer from the Aggies afterward.

"I worked with Coach Koenning (offensive coordinator) in the afternoon session, and we worked a lot on my footwork," Green said. "He said I did very good and thought I would do well at the next level. Then, after the camp I talked to Coach Franchione and he offered me a scholarship. I was blown away."

The Aggies' offer now puts Green's list up to four with University of Houston, Baylor, and Purdue already promising a scholarship, and the 6-foot-4, 211-pound prospect is just now embarking on his junior season in high school.

The Dayton native enjoyed his second trip of the summer to Texas A&M, and it was a dream come true to play on Kyle Field and then receive an offer to play for the Aggies.

"I really like it up there. I like the atmosphere," Green said. "It's a small town spread over a big area and that's like my hometown of Dayton. I felt comfortable there."

Green also likes the reputation of Texas A&M academically, especially in the field of study he plans to pursue in college.

"I want to study animal science. I love animals and the outdoors," Green said. "A&M is known for having one of the best animal science programs in the country. UT has a pretty good one also."

Green admitted that he grew up following the two flagship universities in the state.

"I think everybody growing up in Texas keeps up with the Aggies and Longhorns," Green said. "I followed both programs like everybody else. You can't live here and not know what they are doing."

In addition to the A&M camps, Green has attended several summer camps including one in Austin with Texas and another at the Peyton Manning camp in New Orleans.

"The facilities were nice at Texas and I had a good experience," Green said. "The Peyton Manning Camp was great because I got to really work on my footwork and my accuracy that will help me the rest of my career."

While Green is still working hard on his footwork, he believes he excels in several areas of his game, including his ability to sit in the pocket and find his receivers.

"If I had to list my strength, I'd say it's my vision of the field and being able to read what is going on and finding the open receiver," Green said. "I'm very confident in the pocket, and if there's nothing open, I'm comfortable scrambling. I consider myself a passer first, and a runner second."

While Green admits that Texas A&M is very high on his list, he indicated that he wants to wait and watch some games this season and then commit before his senior season.

"I like A&M, but I'm probably going to wait and commit before my senior season," Green said. "I plan to go to a lot of college games this fall since most of the schools I'm looking at are close and play one another."

Dayton High School opens up the season August 24 with a scrimmage against Angleton.
