Athlete Gets Looks at Two Positions

Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame's Garrett Green (6-1, 190) is a versatile enough prospect to be recruited both as a quarterback and as a defensive back.

His five scholarship offers are all as a quarterback, from Duke, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Mississippi State and Washington, yet there is a possibility he could play on the defensive side of the ball.

"My passion is at quarterback," Green said. "But I need to make a decision if that's where I play in college because some schools like me as a safety," said Green.

Some of those schools include Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington State.

None of those schools have offered Green, but Oregon, Stanford and UCLA are among his favorites, joining the schools that have offered him.

"I haven't really narrowed down my list yet," said Green. "All of those schools are pretty even."

Like his teammate, Rodney Glass, track took up most of Green's spring, preventing him from participating in many combines, but he'll be at one this weekend when he visits Eugene for the Nike Camp.

He did attend the UCLA Adidas Camp and clocked a 4.5 forty, did a 4.3 shuttle and jumped 34.5 inches in the vertical. He also plans to attend USC's Skills Camp.

In track, Green was part of Notre Dame's CIF Finals and Masters champs in the 4x100.

"Track has been great, but I won't do it in college," said Green.

As a junior, Green had 1,850 yards passing and 15 touchdowns while rushing for 900 yards and nine touchdowns in Notre Dame's CIF Division III Championship season.

Green said a decision on a college wasn't coming any time soon. "I'm not one that's trying to rush into something. I want to figure it out and look at all the things I'm interested in. I do want to take some visits," said Green.
