Offers rolling in for Green

Dayton Quarterback Cody Green continues to haul in offers from major Division I programs from around the country, but does he have any favorites yet? Where do the Aggies stand? Aggie Websider visits with the blue-chip quarterback about that and more.

Dayton (TX) quarterback Cody Green continues to see scholarship offers rolling in this spring despite an ankle injury that sidelined the No. 9 M&W/Aggie Websider Top 100 prospect for a good portion of his junior season. The most recent offers have come from the LSU Tigers and the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

"LSU offered me last week. It definitely puts them into the mix," Green said. "It's pretty close to home and they have a winning tradition."

LSU has already received a verbal commitment from the top player in Texas, quarterback Russell Shepard. Will the fact that the Tigers have a verbal commitment from a quarterback play a factor in Green's evaluation of the Tigers?

"It probably will, but it will depend on how I feel about the other schools recruiting me," Green said. "I got to know Russell at junior day last month and he's a great guy. I'd like to compete with him. LSU said they are signing two quarterbacks, so we'll see."

In addition to the two new offers, Green already has a long list of schools that have offered a scholarship including Texas A&M, UH, Baylor, Miami, Texas Tech, Missouri, and Mississippi State. Two other schools are showing serious interest and have caught the eye of the talented signal caller.

"I have a couple of visits tentatively set-up. I'm going to see Oklahoma State and Alabama in the next several weeks," Green said. "I'd like to make it over to Texas A&M for their spring game."

While Green refused to name a leader for his signature, he did mention a few schools where he has built a solid relationship with the coaching staff.

"I'm not ready to say I have a leader yet. I have a few schools I still want to see," Green said. "But I have built a special relationship with the coaches at LSU, OSU, Baylor, and Texas A&M."

Green is on schedule to graduate in December and enroll early in school. Thus, he would like to make a decision as quickly as possible, most likely in the summer. In the meantime, Green plans to see some schools and attend some of the prestigious combines in the coming months.

"I was invited to the Elite Eleven Camp in Dallas, so I'll go there," Green said. "I'll probably go to the Nike Combine as well."
