Sophomore defensive end Rasheem Green of Gardena (Calif.) Serra may not be an experienced player, but his upside is undeniable.
"I am still getting a feel for how to play the game," Green said. "I haven't played a lot of football in life since I grew up playing basketball, but I'm getting better."
Schools have taken notice of Green's potential, and he has a growing list of impressive suitors. "UCLA, Miami, USC, Florida, California, Notre Dame, Utah, Tennessee, Notre Dame and Washington are the schools that have offered me," Green said.
The 6-foot-5, 269-pound lineman says, even though he's so young, college programs have said how much they like him. "I can stop the run, and I have good hands," Green said. "I play a low pad level and have pretty good speed and strength."
Many of the schools on his list have been frequent visitors to Serra, first to see Adoree Jackson and Dwight Williams, but they've definitely taken notice of Green. He, too, has been able to get out to visit a local school.
"I went to USC this spring, and it was a cool visit," Green said.
In terms of having a list of favorites or seeing more schools, Green said: "I don't know my plans yet for this summer. I'm pretty wide open right now. I don't have any favorites."
"He's a ridiculous athlete," Serra coach Scott Altenberg said in a previous interview. "He's still only 15 years old too, that's the scary part. He can broad jump 9'2", bench press over 300 pounds and full squat 445."
That's not bad for a sophomore who has yet to play a full season of high school varsity football.
