Green ready to protect the blind side

Palomar OT Robert Green (6-5, 300) has all the size and athleticism necessary to become a top JUCO recruit this fall and this offseason he's been hard at work trying to get ready for a big sophomore season. spoke to the talented lineman recently and he updated us on things including what he does best on the football field...

Green prepped Trotwood (Oh.) Madison High School and signed with Jackson State, but he was unable to qualify, so he decided to head west to get back to his roots and get his academics in order.

"I'm from (Los Angeles) originally, so this was like coming home," Green told recently. "I was trying to be a late-qualifier at Jackson State, but I couldn't do it and when I figured out I needed to go JC, Palomar was the right choice because it was an area I knew really well and they have a great reputation for getting linemen out."

As a freshman last fall, Green manned both the right and left tackle positions and this year he's still waiting to find out where he'll end up starting.

"It depends on which QB we have starting," Green said. "We have a right-hander and a lefty and our coaches want me on the blind side, so it really depends on which one starts.

"I feel comfortable on both sides and I feel like I'm a better pass-blocker right now, if I had to choose one. I have good feet and I'm athletic for my size."

In addition to his impressive size, Green also has 4.95 speed and he benches nearly 350 pounds and those natural skills, to go along with his versatility have made him a hot-commodity so far this summer.

"I've been hearing from Iowa State, San Diego State, Washington State and Utah State the most," Green said. "Jackson State is still interested in me and Utah is a school I've talked to a little too."

Green is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
