Conway, S.C., three-star offensive guard/defensive tackle Hivera Green has liked Clemson and Virginia Tech for quite some time, however, two visitors this week might change things up. Especially when one of those visitors was Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops.
“Coach Stoops said I was like a totally different person,” said Green, who is now 6-foot-5 and 271 pounds but was in the 240-pound range when he visited Oklahoma’s campus this summer. “He was shocked at how big I had gotten.
“He said the whole reason why they didn’t offer me was because I was down at 240 pounds. He said he’s going to take my tape back with him to Oklahoma and then review it with the other coaches on Friday. I’m really hoping that I can get an offer from them.”
But Oklahoma isn’t alone in their pursuit of Green. Last week he received in-home visits from Clemson, South Carolina and Virginia Tech and Tuesday he’s scheduled to visit with Ohio State, who is on the verge of offering a scholarship, too.
“They’re in the process of offering me,” he said. “They’re working on the paper work. I’m hoping they have it with them when they come tomorrow.”
So what would happen if Ohio State and Oklahoma offered? Would it change for Green’s interest in Clemson and Virginia Tech or any of the other teams that have offered him?
“Things are just wild right now,” he said. “I think in a way it would change things for sure. If they both offer that would make me really like them a lot. I’ve always liked Oklahoma, and I’ve always thought Ohio State would be a good place, too. I’d still have to take my visits and then see what’s up.”
Green at this point does have Clemson set for January 14 and Virginia Tech set for January 7. He will not visit anywhere the next two weeks because of the North Carolina-South Carolina Shrine Bowl.
