Zachary Green has bounced around high schools a little bit early in his career but he's found a home at Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure and things are going really well for the 2013 running back.
Green, a 5-foot-9, 210-pound prospect, scored two touchdowns for the second game in a row last weekend to bring his season total to seven scores and through five games he has nearly 500 rushing yards.
That's much improved from his sophomore season at Los Angeles Cathedral and so Green, who's hearing from a bunch of schools early on, is excited about the rest of his junior year and beyond.
"I'm getting it in the end zone more," Green said. "I know if I don't do whatever I can when I get the ball I know they're going to rotate quarterbacks so I play to the best of my ability every time I touch the ball and I try to make the most out of it.
"I have more touchdowns now than I did all of last season at Cathedral. I have about 478 yards in five games and I only had 599 in the whole season last year. It's been a real big improvement."
St. Bonaventure's offensive line is stout, led by David Barajas, who shined at the B2G Elite Camp this past summer and has UCLA as his favorite, so Green is taking advantage of the openings and making things happen.
"The line is a big difference and running with an H-back, I feel more comfortable with that scheme," Green said. "Our coaching and our offensive line have been great. Without our offensive line I wouldn't be able to do as much as I can now."
So far, Green said he's hearing from Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Wisconsin, Boston College, Texas A&M, Alabama and some other programs.
No offers have come yet for the junior running back but he hopes that changes soon after the season.
"I've been hearing from a lot of schools," Green said.
"Most are saying right after the football season they're going to come out to the school and I'm going to be one of the main targets they have on the board. It's really nice to hear from all these schools."
