Corsicana, Texas offensive guard Courtney Green seemed pretty solid when he committed to Baylor in June, but then he said that other official visits would be possible in late July. Now things have shifted again.
The 6-foot-4, 285-pound Bears commit now says that thoughts about other visits have faded away and he's solid. In the end, Green said it was a pretty simple thing that led him to that decision.
"That coaching staff, coach Wesley McGriff and all of the coaches, they treat me really well," Green said. "They care about me and they care about my potential to start early. I've been going up there a lot for games and all that, so I shut down all the other stuff.
"I'm going to stay with Baylor."
Waco's distance from home also has played a big factor in the decision to not take visits away from Baylor.
"I don't really think going out-of-state is for me," Green said. "I've seen some guys go out-of-state and then want to come back. I'd rather stick with a school that's 45 minutes away, with great coaches, and be able to start as a freshman or sophomore."
So far the season hasn't gone the way Green had planned with an 0-2 start, but he admits they were close games and Corsicana has the chance to rebound really well.
"They were both tight scores," he said. "We lost in overtime to West Mesquite and then lost by a touchdown to Jacksonville. It's going pretty well though and we're going to come back."
