Will one of the best running backs in the southeast leave the area and travel west to attend school and further his football career? The USC Trojans have already offered this very skillful football player an offer, but is cross town rival UCLA next?
The player in question is running back Roderick Green (6-1, 230, 4.57) from Little Rock (Ark.) Pulaski Academy.
Besides USC this talented running back has other scholie offers from Penn State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.
Green can get the job done running and catching the football so he fits the modern prototypical running back.
On the ground, Green rushed for 1,664 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior.
Through the air, Green was just as impressive catching the rock. He ended up with 45 receptions for 563 yards and five receiving touchdowns.
Green's offensive performance saw him earn all-metro and all-conference honors in the 2005.
Green also played some defense when his team needed him to, but he's going to earn his scholie toting the football.
At this moment USC is his favorite team.
"I like a lot of things about USC," Green said. "They have an excellent program every year and I like the coaches. I've checked out USC's facilities on the internet and they look good, too."
"I got a text message from Coach Mac (D.J. McCarthy) and he wanted me to call right away," Green said. "I called and left him a message."
"I don't know that much about UCLA," Green said. "I know some of their players from watching a couple of games on TV. I'm interested in finding out what the call was all about and I'm interested in UCLA."
Green has excellent football bloodlines. Two of his brothers are excellent football players. His brother Stephen Green signed with North Carolina from the class of 2004 and his other brother Greg Wesley currently makes his living on Sundays with the Kansas City Chiefs.
