Three star defensive end Kevin Greene (6-4, 245, 4.5) from San Francisco (Calif.) Sacred Heart Cathedral has a tremendously high ceiling. He has only played one season of organized and what a year that was.
As a junior, Greene racked up 70 tackles, 22 tackles and 8 tackles for loss. Not bad for a beginner, is it.
Greene's season saw him earn all-area honors. He would have received all-league honor, but his school was an independent in 2007.
UCLA is the school that most recently offered Greene when they did so last week. The Bruins join Arizona State, Oregon, Washington State, Colorado and UNLV as schools that have offered.
"I have no favorites right now, but USC, Oregon and Colorado are on top" Greene said. "USC was the first school to recruit me. Pat Ruel, USC's line coach was up to see my game and that was an honor."
According to Greene if USC offered, he would still want to see the campus before saying yes to the Trojans.
"I have only been to USC once and that was on the practice field," Greene said. "I still want to see the campus, but it would be an honor to play for USC."
"Even if USC offers, I want to take all five visits," Greene said. "I'm planning on visiting Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and USC."
Greene has also been in contact with Texas and the word is Arizona is close to offering him a scholie.
Greene is being recruited as a defensive end or linebacker.
Greene and his Sacred Heart teammates have started the season off slow (1-2), but Greene has been doing his job. In three games, he has accounted for 14 tackles, four sacks, three tackles for loss and has blocked one field goal.
Sacred Heart's next game will be against Mountain View (Calif.) Saint Francis.
Greene was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 53 prospect at any position.
