Four for Green

LonghornDigest caught up with San Antonio (Texas) Madison High 5-star running back Aaron Green. Green recently named four top schools in his recruitment and could make a final decision sooner than later.

San Antonio (Texas) Madison High running back Aaron Green is one of the most highly sought after recruits in the nation. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound 5-star running back holds offers from almost every major program in the country, and recently narrowed things down to a top-four.

"I have four schools on top right now. Florida State, Nebraska, Texas and Cal. Those four are in no order, they are all the same," said Green.

Florida State- I'm still learning about their program but they have been showing me a lot of love. I talk to coach (Elliot) a lot.

Nebraska- "The environment they have there is very comfortable. They are real humble and they have a good head on their shoulders."

Texas- "They win games and have great tradition. It seems like a fun place to be. I love being in the state of Texas and they just switched to the pro-style offense.

Cal- "I like the offense that they run. They always produce some good running back too."

The 5-star running back's stock continued to rise when he was ranked the number two overall players in's Texas Top 175 that was released on June 15.

Green hopes to find a school where he feels comfortable and can be himself. He also has a type of offense that he would prefer to play in at the next level.

"I want a school where I feel at home, sort of like a home away from home kind of thing. Also, I would like to play in a pro-style offense."

The blue-chip running back has yet to attend any camps this summer and will likely only participate in one that takes place in July in Virginia.

He currently doesn't have any upcoming visits scheduled, but he plans on taking official visits to each of the four schools sometime this fall.

Many people in Texas value the football tradition and rivalries that have taken place over the years. Green is no exception, and he was happy when he learned that the Longhorns decided to remain in the Big-12 conference.

"It's good that they stayed. I like the Big-12 and I didn't want anything to change. The Big-12 has a lot of tradition and I grew up watching all those teams play one another."

Green will likely make his final decision sometime during his senior season this fall. He indicated that distance will not be a factor and he is more focused on finding the right fit for him.

He finished his junior season with 1,133 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, along with 151 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
