Greene Waiting for Wisconsin

Although initial interest has tapered off, Chula Vista (CA.) Southwestern College cornerback Rashad Greene still has Wisconsin high on his list and hopes to get an opportunity to visit the Badgers.

MADISON - Wisconsin has a sense of emergency in its secondary, losing three senior starters from the Rose Bowl, and are looking for instant experience.

Having hit the junior college ranks, Wisconsin recently contacted Chula Vista (CA.) Southwestern College cornerback Rashad Greene. After his successful season, his attention is now shifted to a top list of Wisconsin, Nevada and Western Kentucky. Out of his top three, Western Kentucky is the only school to have offered him so far.

"I have talked to Western Kentucky cornerback coach in Coach Brumfield and set up an official visit for February 1," Greene told Badger Nation. "That is it for right now and the only one. I haven't heard from any new schools recently either. I am very interested in all of my top three."

Wisconsin had contacted Greene to let him know of their new interest, but hasn't heard from them since. Even so, Greene still maintains a high level of interest in the Badgers.

"I know whenever they give me a visit, I will be down there," Greene said. "I am excited to be getting recruited by them and look forward to getting an offer soon to making that visit.

"Whenever someone offers me is when I will be committing. Basically if Wisconsin offers, I am going to commit. If all offered, then I would have to think about it. If Wisconsin offered me, then they would be my top school."

Since defensive coordinator Dave Aranda told Greene Wisconsin was looking for play-making cornerbacks, Greene has done some research on Wisconsin and has been impressed with his findings.

"I just really like them," Greene said. "I know they have really good facilities, a good weight program and very good academics. They are very young at defensive back and they had three guys just graduate. I know there is a good chance for me to go into there and play. That is exactly what wants me to go there a lot more.

"The fan base is great at Wisconsin. I have read some of their comments and they seem to really like me. They say that Wisconsin really doesn't recruit JUCO players, but I would be a good fit in their program."
