Offers are beginning to pile up for one of the top 2010 prospects in the Southeast. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder already claims over a half dozen offers from some of the top teams in the country.
"I've got about six or seven offers from Florida State, Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, Louisville, South Florida and Boston College," Tampa (Fla.) Tampa Catholic junior quarterback Christian Green said. "A lot of schools are sending me stuff, Notre Dame, LSU, Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina, Alabama, Auburn, UCLA and more."
What does Green think of all the interest already?
"It's very exciting," he stated. "It shows all the hard work I put in to what I do, but it also keeps me working and help my teammates. I want to keep winning and improving as a player. I don't want to get too caught up in offers. I want to keep a level head. I have a good family that helps me keep it level-headed."
Green already holds an offer from one of his early favorites.
"I've always been a huge Florida State fan," he stated. "Actually I like all the Florida schools, Miami and Florida.
"I like Florida State cause my cousin went there in the 90's. My uncle played up there and my mom went to school there. I've got family ties.
"With Miami and Florida, I like the environment. The people seem really nice and laid back. They are good people to be around."
Green is looking for a few things in a college.
"I'm thinking about staying closer to home, down south," he said. "I'm pretty close with my family. I want to start a business too, so I want a good business school."
Green is currently playing quarterback for Tampa Catholic and has helped his team to a 3-2 record.
"I'm doing pretty good," he said. "I missed the first few games of the season due to an injured ankle. I've played well in two full games."
What stands out about Green as a player?
"I'm a hard worker. I think I've been blessed with a lot of ability and I like to work. I think I'm fast and have good size too," he said. "I do think my whole game needs to improve. I need to have more understanding as a quarterback and a better understanding overall."
Green could play a variety of positions at the next level. He gave his take on that more.
"Some of the schools are recruiting me as a quarterback and some an athlete," he said. "I kind of really want to play wide receiver in college, but it doesn't matter. I'll do whatever the school wants me to."
