Coaches in university-logoed polos have become commonplace at Moore (Okla.) Westmoore High School in recent weeks. Most are there to get a look at 6-foot-4 wide receiver Dahu Green, whose name is gaining more and more traction on recruiting boards across the country.
Already the recipient of 14 scholaship offers, it's not as though the three-star prospect is some sort of diamond in the Oklahoma-based rough as things stand now. It's easy to get the feeling that his recruitment is on the verge of receiving yet another jolt.
"Arkansas, Tennessee, Purdue was in there today. Indiana came by two days ago. Those are the most recent. Nebraska was in a few weeks ago. They just come by in spurts."

Green isn't interested in projecting what offers he may collect this summer or the ones he may add during his senior season. Instead, he's focused on the ones he has currently. He doesn't intend to hit any camps this summer. Instead, he'll tour the campuses of the schools that have already made things official.
"This summer, I'm going to check out some of the schools I have offers from so I know where I want to take my officials," Green said. "I'll probably visit Louisville, Kentucky and Indiana … and other offer schools. Just going to all the places I can get to."
A transplant from California, Green moved to Oklahoma from the Golden State in October of 2012 and has no emotional tie to any in-state or regional school. His West Coast roots also make staying close to home less of a priority when it comes to choosing a college.
Instead, the driving factor in Green's recruitment will be cliché and intangible. His choice, it seems, will be based on relatioships and his surroundings.
"I just want a place I feel comfortable," Green said. "I'll just feel it. I'll just feel right. That's how I'll know it's the school."
