Green-Beckham: There's a lot of pressure being the No. 1 recruit but I honestly don't really think about it. It's not really a big deal for me. Going around town or going out of town, people notice me though. It helps me stay grounded to be sure. They'll tell me I'm a great player and to be humble. They tell me they pray for me and my little brother. It's a lot of pressure but there's so much more good that comes with it. It has been so unexpected but great.
