Green makes Big Ten camp stop

Zachary Green is a big back and Wisconsin has had lots of success with big backs so the Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure 2013 prospect recently camped with the Badgers and loved the experience.
"I really like the environment," Green said. "Everybody is friendly. The coaches are really nice. I met every single coach and the running backs coach we've been talking and he loves me as a back.
"He said I need to work on little things but other than that I'm good to go. I'm hoping for an offer.
"It's humid and it took me a while to get used to it but I got used to it. We were practicing on the field at night and the whole stadium was lit up and it was crazy."
Green, who was timed at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash and 4.2 seconds in the shuttle, is highly interested in Wisconsin but even if the Badgers offer he might wait things out a little longer in his recruitment.
Oklahoma has started to show interest and Green, a 5-foot-9, 210-pound prospect, is also hearing from Alabama, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC and others.
He's also getting advice from some people in Southern California to hold off and see what else could happen before committing.
"My dad and I were talking about it, about committing, but we weren't sure and people like De'Anthony Thomas were telling me that I should wait to see what options I'll have later on," Green said.
"Some schools will stop recruiting you if you commit. I might take it slow."
In his junior season, Green rushed for about 600 yards with five touchdowns and also caught 21 passes for 167 yards in his sophomore season at Los Angeles Cathedral.
