The Sunshine State is always blessed at the receiver position and this upcoming recruiting year is no different. One of the top prospects at wideout will be Rashad Greene from Ft. Lauderdale powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas. Greene, 6-0 and 175 pounds, is happy with his game but he knows he has a lot of work to do.
"I think I bring a lot to the table," Greene said. "I am fast, run good routes, and read defenses pretty well. But that is still something I need to work on. I am really explosive with the ball in my hands. That's probably the best part of my game.
"I am having a good off-season and working out every day. I am just getting ready for football."
Last season was Greene's first in south Florida. He moved to the Sunshine State from Georgia. He was looking for a bigger challenge.
"I moved down from Albany and went to Westover High School. I wanted to play at St. Thomas Aquinas. It's been such a good experience. It's so competitive down here, especially against all these corners. That's different than Georgia. And I am a much better player for it. This (moving) was exactly what I was looking for."
So where does Greene stand with the recruiting process? Does he want to get back home to the Peach State?
"That really doesn't matter to me at this point. I just am open with everything. Heck, I don't even know all my offers. Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State and North Carolina have offered for sure. I know I have a ton of unopened mail. It's something like 31 schools I know of that are recruiting me. I just never thought it would be like this."
Greene has yet to visit any schools but that will change very shortly.
"I want to visit Florida State. I will go on the 20th or 27th this month."
