Deptford High School won its first game handily, capturing a 27-7 victory. Michael Green, who plays linebacker and fullback, led the Deptford attack by scoring two rushing touchdowns on offense and playing very well on defense.
Green is equally effective on both sides of the ball and has college coaches wondering which position he should play on the next level. The 6-1, 235 pound prospect believes defense will be in his future.
“Most schools are recruiting me as a linebacker,” said Green. “Some like me at fullback too.”
Virginia Tech is one school that is recruiting Green as an “athlete.” The Hokies, who have offered a scholarship, also appear to be Green’s favorite at this point.
“I’m open, but I like Virginia Tech,” said Green, who is being recruited by Coach Jim Cavanaugh. “I just like the coaching staff and the tradition they have. It’s good that they are moving to the ACC too.”
In addition to Virginia Tech, Green is considering offers from Illinois, Indiana, South Carolina, Maryland, and Temple. Virginia, Miami (FL), and Nebraska are teams that have not offered but are being considered. All of the schools mentioned have made contact this month.
Green hopes to narrow his list towards the end of his senior season. He’s looking for several specific factors in the schools he chooses to visit.
“I will narrow things down as my season winds down,” said Green. “Basically, I’m looking for a place I’d be happy at if I couldn’t play football. I’m looking for the right relationship with the coaches.”
Green has not yet attended any schools unofficially to view games, but mentioned that he may trip to Rutgers for the Virginia Tech game. Maryland is another school he may visit for a game.
