"Pat Ruel called me and he basically asked me what's my take on USC," Greene said. "He passed the phone to Coach Carroll and Carroll said ‘Kevin, how do you feel about being a Trojan?'
"I told Coach Carroll the only thing that kept me from yelling was that I was in a restaurant eating with a bunch of people."
Greene sent a tape to the USC coaches three weeks ago, from a game in which he recorded seven sacks, and he believes that performance is what earned him an offer from the Trojans.
"I believe that tape is the one that made them pull the trigger as far as the offer," he said. "That was a huge game."
The 6-4, 235-pound defensive end attended USC's Rising Stars Camp two years ago and has been interested in the Trojans ever since.
"First off, their education is very high," Greene said of USC. "It's about four or five hours from home, so it's close. It's a wonderful campus, wonderful city and the football is constantly winning everything."
"Right now, my top three would have to be Oregon, USC and Colorado."
Green informed us that Cal, who was once a major player in his recruitment, is no longer showing interest.
"Cal stopped calling me and stopped recruiting me," he said. "I don't know why, but that's out of my control."
The athletic defensive end hasn't taken any official visits yet but plans to visit Washington State, which was the first school to offer him, on Nov.8th and will visit USC in December.
Greene has 14 sacks in seven games this season for Sacred Heart HS.
