Chris Green still has two seasons left in his prep career, but already the class of 2015 prospect has accomplished more than most will in a full career. Starting at middle linebacker on a state title winning team and already boasting two Division I scholarship offers are among the highlights.
The 6-foot, 226-pound Green will continue to work on the recruiting aspect of his football career this summer before helping his Toledo Central Catholic defend their Ohio Division 2 state title in the fall. Camping with a Big Ten program will be one of the more noteworthy recruiting endeavors he will undertake this summer.
"I'm going to a Michigan camp later in June," Green reported. "They haven't come to visit me, but from what I hear and what I see I think they are a good defensive team. The defensive coordinator coached my favorite player, Ray Lewis, and I really like him for that."
If Green does attend any other camps this summer, Bowling Green is likely to be one of those destinations. They are one of two programs, along with Toledo, to have already offered the class of 2015 linebacker.
"They talked to me today about going on campus, coming to camp and getting comfortable," Green said.
Shortly after his sophomore season ended, schools like Indiana, Akron, Tennessee and Ohio State came through the schools to see Green. More college coaches were in to see him this fall.
"Michigan State has come to see me," Green said. "Penn State and Northwestern came to see me last week."
Green was a key contributor in Central Catholic's state title game win last fall, collecting six tackles and two sacks, one of which resulted in a safety. He finished the season with an estimated 96 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles.
