OLB Green adds a Big Ten offer

North Chicago (Ill.) junior outside linebacker prospect Kevin Green (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) has added his second scholarship offer this spring.
"I've been offered a scholarship by Purdue," Green said. "My coach (Mike Grenda) called me down to his office and told me that he just got off the phone with the Purdue coaches and they confirmed that Purdue has offered me a scholarship and that the paperwork was in the mail."
Green, who now has early offers from Purdue and Bowling Green talked about landing his latest offer from the Boilermakers.
"Purdue definitely offers a great mix of both athletics and academics, which is attractive to me. I've been to a game at Purdue and I really like the atmosphere. Purdue has had great success over the years and it's Big Ten football. I've also started to build up a really good relationship with coach (Mark) Hagen, who's my recruiting coach at Purdue. I'm definitely excited to get an offer from the Boilermakers."
Green has also continued to draw new recruiting interest over the last few weeks.
"Lately besides Purdue, Kansas and Georgia Tech have started to send some hand-written mail. Ohio State, Wisconsin, Illinois, Notre Dame and Northwestern have all been sending more mail."
Green is also planning to take a few spring visits over the next few weeks.
"I'm planning to check out Purdue this Sunday. I'm also looking at Notre Dame on April 15th and Iowa on April 16th."
