Kevin Greene is a very talented athlete that could play either defensive end or outside linebacker for the Trojans. Greene grew up playing basketball and has only played organized football for the past two years, but proved to be a quick study recording 28 sacks at Sacred Heart Prep last season.

He is still learning the game but is a natural athlete and has unlimited potential. He will benefit greatly from college coaching.

According to Carroll: "Kevin Greene is a guy we recruited out of San Francisco. He's a guy that played defensive end spot. We've seen him run very, very fast. He's got great speed and size. He could play defensive end and outside linebacker, he's got that kind of body type at 6-3, 237. He could play both and we'll see how he fits in. He runs so fast and gets up the field rushing the passer."

Reason for Choosing USC: "USC is where I want to go. I'm still kind of shocked. I still can't believe that I am on my way to becoming a USC Trojan and being a part of the history that they have. I am very fortunate."
