Athlete prospect Deonte Green (6-2, 215, 4.5) from San Diego (Calif.) Mission Bay is one of those players who has the versatility to play a number of positions on the D-I level.
Green has played wide receiver, tight end, running back, inside linebacker, outside linebacker, cornerback and safety for Mission Bay.
Green is being recruited as an athlete but probably projects as a wide receiver or outside backer on the D-I level. He has the size and speed that colleges are trying to land at the wide receiver position and he has the athleticism, range and attitude that D-I schools like at linebacker.
So far the talented athlete has three offers on the table from San Diego State, Fresno State and Arizona.
The Arizona offer is very intriguing because the Wildcats have a history of signing impact players from San Diego who fly somewhat under the radar.
Other schools showing interest in Green are USC, UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State and Colorado.
It is interesting that all the schools that are looking at Green have a history with harvesting San Diego talent.
"I don't have any favorites right now," Green said. "I will try to narrow things down by the end of summer."
"The most important thing I'm looking at is I want to get a good education," Green said. "And attend a school that has a nice community and a good college environment."
"I don't care where I play in college," Green said. "Wherever the coach thinks I can play best is where I'll play and I think that would be linebacker."
"Distance and location doesn't matter," Green said. "I just want to play football and get an education."
As a receiver, Green had 23 receptions for 335 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 14.6 yards per catch.
On the defensive side of the ball, Green accounted for 35 solo tackles, 10 tackles for loss and four sacks.
Green earned all-league honors for his junior season performance.
In an earlier interview with Mission Bay assistant coach Rolando Garcia, he had the following to say about his talented athlete.
"Deonte has the talent to make the big play on offense," Garcia said. "He has the ability take the ball to the house in a number of ways. He can catch, he can run or even throw the ball."
"On defense, Deonte is really physical and aggressive," Garcia said. "He can turn a game around with a sack or a pick."
"Deonte has a great wingspan," Garcia said. "Because of that he plays long and tall."
"Another thing that we love about Deonte is he's always ready to play," Garcia said. "He loves and is passionate about football."
