Aaron Green Camp Plans are Up in the Air

The state of Texas is brimming with running back talent in the 2011 class and one of the best known prospects is Aaron Green of San Antonio Madison. The YouTube sensation had plans to make a Texas summer camp, but is that the case? Burnt Orange Beat spoke with the speedy back this week as he prepares for the state track meet.

Aaron Green is a name that most recruiting fans from all over the country already know a lot about. Anytime you step into the coaching offices at Madison, you are very likely to run into coaches from USC, Texas, Oklahoma, or any other top programs in the country.

The 5-9, 175-pound quick, darting runner with superior vision and ability to make defenders miss put together a dominant sophomore campaign rushing for 2,024 yards and 27 touchdowns as well as catching 16 passes for nearly 220 yards and two additional scores.

Green who has visited Austin several times including the Texas Spring Game had planned on making another unofficial visit on June 7th for a mini-camp, but his schedule has changed. Ironically, Green will be in Austin on Saturday, June 6 for the state track meet. Green is the lone state track qualifier from San Antonio Madison and he is slated to run the 110-meter hurdles on Saturday afternoon.

After the state track meet, Green and his family will be headed up to Lincoln, Nebraska to help his brother move into.

"I was going to go to the UT camp on the 7th but I'm going to be in Nebraska then taking my brother to college. We will just see from there," Aaron Green explained.

Green's older brother, safety Andrew Green, signed with the Nebraska Cornhuskers in February and will be a freshman there this fall.

It is possible that Green might attend the second Texas football mini-camp on June14.

"It just depends on how I feel. I'm not going to have my football legs back since I am still in track. I just want to be at my full potential," Green said.

While Green claims no favorites at this point in his college recruitment, a couple of schools are standing out to the elite back.

"Of course Nebraska is standing out. I'd have to say USC, definitely Oklahoma and UT," said Green.

Green said that he plans to be Los Angeles for two weeks this summer and will likely stop by USC to see the campus and facilities. It is possible that Green takes a trip up to see Oklahoma and Texas during the summer but no firm plans have yet been made. Another in-state trip does seem likely.

"I have a whole lot of family in College Station, so I'll probably head up there too to check out Texas A&M and see what they have to offer."

Green reports scholarship offers from Texas A&M, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Georgia and Texas Tech has told him that they will offer on September 1.
