Green lays out rough visit plans

No official visits are locked in yet but Rasheem Green is planning to take all five and none of them are in Southern California.
The five-star defensive tackle from powerhouse Gardena (Calif.) Serra said he has no dates finalized but would like to take at least a few of his trips during the season even though the schools are scattered across the country.
"I have an idea of what schools I'll take official visits to but I'm not sure yet," Green said.
"I'm looking at Oregon, Stanford, Oklahoma, Alabama and The U (Miami). I would love to see a game at those schools but it might be hard during the season so I might take some visits after the season but I'm not sure yet."
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound prospect who looked good at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour this summer in Baltimore does not intend to just take free trips, either. He's serious about looking at all those programs closely.
Although he has been rumored to be staying closer to home - with USC and UCLA as the possible frontrunners along with other Pac-12 powers Oregon and Stanford - the five-star is at least going to give other programs a shot by taking visits to those schools.
"Those are the schools that really stand out to me," Green said. "Those are some of my top schools."
Neither USC nor UCLA would be getting official trips if the Serra standout sticks with the above five but by no means does that mean those programs are trailing in his recruitment.
Green has been a hot commodity for the Trojans and Bruins for years and he's visited those campuses numerous times.
More than anything, his officials will be to schools where he needs to do more research. He already knows plenty about the local teams. A decision is still expected much later in his senior year.
"I was thinking about taking officials to them but I'm not sure if I want to because they're so close and I can go up whenever I want to," Green said.
"They're so close to take an official. They're both coming at me pretty hard and I talk to basically the whole coaching staff at each school."
