Green down to two schools

Christiangreen5 21200
For Christian Green the time is almost here. Green, a dynamic wide receiver prospect from Tampa Catholic, is down to two schools. Will it be the favored Florida State Seminoles or will the University of Georgia go to Tampa once again to pull another big timer? Green says he's still not sure but he knows that the decision will be made one way or another on National Signing Day.
"I am starting to get excited about it (National Signing Day)," Green said. "I am just ready to start the new phase of my life, my career. It will be either FSU or Georgia. Right now, I think I have a certain feeling of where I want to go. But I have one more visit to make first."
That visit will be to Tallahassee and Florida State this coming weekend. The Seminoles get the last crack at the 6-2 and 200 pound Green.
"I am really looking forward to getting up to Florida State this weekend. I just want to talk with all the players and coaches and see what they have to say. I want to get to know them better."
One may think it's a slam dunk for FSU with Green, especially considering that his cousin, E.G. Green, played for Bobby Bowden and the 'Noles during the 1990s. But that's just not the case and the Bulldogs find themselves right in the hunt for more of the most explosive recruits in the country.
"Man, I have always liked Georgia, coach (Mark) Richt and the players and coaches up there. They have a great work ethic and want to win championships. They are trying to bring in players that want to win championships."
Another plus for the Dawgs is that last season UGA signed two of the top recruits from the Tampa Bay area in quarterback Aaron Murray and tight end Orson Charles.
"That helps. I mean I have known those guys for a while and I know what kind of people they are and players they are."
A big help in the recruiting process for Green has been E.G. After all, he walked in his shoes before him. He also played for the Seminoles and his offensive coordinator at the time was Mark Richt.
"E.G. has helped out a lot. He went through the process before and he was actually recruited by a lot of the same coaches that are recruiting me. He also knows how these guys are as coaches and as people. But his big thing with me is to pick a place where I feel the most comfortable."
Green and teammate Chaz Green, are both planning on announcing their decisions together next Wedesday morning. Green, a four-star recruit, is a member of the Rivals100 and is the No. 7 ranked athlete.
