With less than a month until national signing day, it looks like a two team battle between the USC Trojans and Washington State Cougars to land the commitment of San Francisco (Calif.) Sacred Heart DE Kevin Greene.

"I only have a top two," Greene said. "Right now, it's between USC and Washington State."

When we spoke with the three-star defensive end, he had just finished an in-home visit with Washington State head coach Paul Wulff, and was excited about the Cougars' future.

"Even though they didn't have the best year, it looks good because of all the recruits that they are bringing and the coaching staff," Greene said. "It sounds very promising for the future."

As for the Trojans, Greene will take an official visit to USC on Jan.16th and is looking to get a feel for the overall program.

"I'm looking to see how the team gets along with the coaches, what the players have to say about the coaches and the students," Greene said. "I have a cousin that goes to USC and she has nothing but great things to say about USC."

The 6-4, 235-pound defensive end made sure to watch the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day and couldn't have been more impressed with the Trojans' style of play.

"I had my popcorn ready," Greene said. "It was huge. That's how football should be played night in and night out. They held nothing back.

"Pete Carroll showed why he is the No.1 coach in the nation and why USC should be playing on Thursday (BCS National Championship).

"Like he said at the end of the game, I don't think anybody could beat the USC Trojans."

During the Rose Bowl Greene focused on USC defensive end Clay Matthews.

"I had my eyes keyed in on Clay Matthews," Greene said. "The USC coaches told me that's what position I would be playing.

"He has a motor on him, and I had no idea that he was a walk-on. Now the conversation is what round will he go, first or second.

"It was fun to watch him, Taylor Mays and Maualuga. Those guys really bring it."

After taking his visit to USC on Jan.16th, Greene plans to sit down and make his final decision.

"I am looking forward to taking my trip," Greene said. "I think USC will be my final trip and then from there it will be between the USC Trojans and Washington State."


Kevin Greene has USC and Washington State as his top 2 schools.
