Woodbury (Minn.) East Ridge's Seth Green is one of the most talked about young quarterbacks in the 2016 class, and on Saturday he landed his fifth scholarship offer.
"Iowa offered me a scholarship today," Green said. "I was actually with my quarterbacks coach, who is a big Iowa fan, when that happened. I was very excited about the opportunity they gave me."
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Green learned about the offer when he made a phone call to Iowa assistant coach Eric Johnson.
"He just told me that the coaches were blown away by my charisma, my attitude, my mindset, questions and just how I want to learn and be a student of the game," Green said. "Also, from the film they watched they liked what they saw."
The Iowa coaching staff got a chance to meet Green in-person two weeks ago when he traveled to Iowa City for a junior day.
"They reached out to my coach and told him they wanted to see me down there because they were interested in me," Green said. "They wanted to get a good relationship with me recruiting-wise, so they thought it would be beneficial if I went down there that weekend and saw it first-hand.
"I thought it was a great atmosphere. It is a very traditional program, which is what I liked a lot about it. There's a lot of loyalty from the coaches. It shows great stability, and you always want that from a college. I am just going to investigate them more as a school and a program to see if I could see myself going there in the future."
Besides Iowa, Green also holds offers from Louisville, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Toledo. Additional programs visited his school this winter.
"Michigan State stopped by yesterday," Green said. "They told me about how they really liked me and would like to see me at a camp. They wanted me to go out and see the campus so I can get a feel for the school."
A two-year starter at East Ridge High, Green led the team to an 8-2 record this past season, throwing for 1,323 yards and 13 touchdowns against six interceptions.
