White Plains (Md.) Lackey running back Morgan Green made the trek for eligibility to Hargrave Military in Chatham, Virginia this fall. Is the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder with 4.5-second speed still committed to the Terps?
"I'm committed to Maryland," he said. "First off it's close to home, so my family can see me play and the coaches are down-to-earth and keep it real. They are straight up people. I especially like coach Friedgen because he's a real down-to-earth guy."
In the mean time, Green will be playing this fall for the Hargrave Tigers.
"It's a military tradition down here and they are teaching me a few things on the way, but by the time I get to college it'll be a breeze through after being here," he said. "I like the fact we wear uniforms down here. I never really liked to keep getting dressed up every day in high school, so it's good because I don't have to have a different outfit every day. For football, that's like my play time here, that's what I love to do and one of the best things for me right now."
How has the adjustment to military life been for the four-star prospect?
"It's been kind of hard because you have to be on time all the time and used to wearing hot stuff," he said. "I've gotten used to it as its all mind games."
The No. 12 running back in the country in 2005 is looking to continue the success he saw in high school at Hargrave.
"I'm trying to keep it going since I missed six games my senior year," he said. "I want to get on top in touchdowns and get myself ready for when I go off to Maryland. My first priority though is taking the ACT and SAT and hopefully I'll be at Maryland in January."
What are his thoughts on his new teammates who are in the same predicament?
"Everybody is good here, we are one of the top teams in the nation and we have the talent to win every single game this year," he said. "Everybody is cool and I especially have watched the other running backs including Keiland Williams and Mike Ford who are both really good."
