Green discusses Cotton Bowl experience

2017 three-star cornerback Darrion Green was at the Cotton Bowl on Saturday to witness Texas’ 24-17 upset win.

Green said he enjoyed his time at the Cotton Bowl

“[It was the] greatest moment I’d ever seen in my life,” Green said. “It was my first time [to attend a] Texas game so it was fun.”

He also said he liked what he saw on the field from the Longhorns.

“The game was great,” Green said. “I saw some big plays by Texas. Every time they ran the ball I pictured myself into that position. I loved the crowd energy through the entire game. It gave the players motivation to keep fighting. UT would be an awesome fit for me. So I hope they keep an eye out for me these last two years of my high school season.”

Green said he’s heard from the Texas staff. He said he’s had conversations with the Longhorns’ Director of Player Personnel Mike Giglio.

“[It’s] just small talk like how are my grades,” Green said.  “[We’ve talked about] the program at Texas, pursuing me to look at them and sending me a game invitation every week.”

Green said he might visit another Texas game if things go as planned.

Outside of recruiting Green said his junior season with the Woodrow Wilson Wildcats is going well.

“[It’s been] great,” Green said. “Our record is 5-1 and my greatest moment is when we played Newman Smith and beat them in second overtime 35-28.”
