Things have changed for Chaz Green. This four-star offensive tackle prospect and Rivals100 member first made the full time move from defensive tackle to offensive tackle last season after switching from Palm Harbor to Tampa Catholic High School. Then, he was 6-6 and 260 pounds. Now he's 6-6 and 297 pounds.
"Last year it was more of an experiment, me moving from defense to offense," Green said. "Now I feel comfortable playing offensive tackle. I feel like I am improving some each week. And we are 8-0 and having a good season."
Another recent change for Green is his school favorite. For a long while he was leaning towards the top ranked Gators and then he visited Tennessee last month. While Florida is still at the top, two teams have joined them.
"Right now I would say that it's Tennessee, Florida, and USC. They are all very good and they all have their reasons for being at the top with me.
"The Tennessee trip surprised me. I didn't think they would leave that kind of impression on me. The coaches have done so much with so little time. I really liked it up there and they really opened up my eyes."
Another team still in the hunt is Ohio State. Green officially visited Columbus in September and came home impressed.
"I wasn't too familiar with them but I got a lot of answers. They have real good academic support. I like the coaches a whole lot and they have great facilities.
"Right now though I would put them behind Tennessee, Florida and USC."
Green said he will officially visit Florida for their game against Florida State and he will officially visit Southern Cal after the season.
"When I am donw with my visits I will have a good feeling or where I will want to go. I may wait a few weeks after and make my decision."
This coming Friday Green and his Tampa Catholic teammates will take on Tampa Jesuit. They haven't beaten Jesuit in years.
"That's one of our goals this season. Our class is 0-3 against them and we haven't beaten them in nine years or so."
