Franklin Green 'Excited' About Future at GSU

Jenkins High School standout looking forward to playing college football at Georgia Southern.

Jenkins High School star Franklin Green is one of the top tailbacks in the state of Georgia for the 2008 class and the three-star prospect is headed to Georgia Southern University to play collegiate ball.

"I am excited," Jenkins told Thursday. "I just want to get there and play. I like the coaches there and I have a good relationship with them. I have been over (to GSU) a lot because we go to a football camp there."

While Green is looking ahead towards enrolling at GSU, the talented tailback was at one time committed to the University of Florida.

"Yeah, I decided I didn't want to go there anymore," Franklin said. "I really wanted to go to South Carolina for a while but they got a running back commitment (Brookwood High's Kenny Miles) right before I might have committed there.

"But I am glad I am going to Georgia Southern. I like their offense. It's a lot like Florida's."

One thing that Green must do if he wants to be a part of that GSU offensive attack is retake his LSAT, which he is already scheduled to do so.

It will be the second time that the 5-foot-11 and 200-pound speedster will have taken the test. There was a mix up the first time he took it and the score consequently didn't count.

"They told me I didn't fill in the proper code or something like that," Green revealed.

Green also mentioned that he had some interest in two other schools but because of distance factors, he is 100-percent set on going to Georgia Southern.

"I was looking at Rutgers and Louisville for a bit," Green said. "But they are too far away from home. I want to stay close by."
