Mike Green, a 6-1, 235 pound fullback/linebacker from Deptford High School (NJ), lists six schools that are high on his list. One school stands out above the others, and that school is Virginia Tech.

“Virginia Tech is still at the top,” said Green. “I’m also looking at Miami (FL), Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, and Maryland.”

Of the schools he is considering, only Miami and Virginia have not offered scholarships. They are all recruiting him as a fullback/linebacker prospect on the next level.

Virginia Tech’s coaches, led by primary recruiter Jim Cavanaugh, are the primary reason for the Hokies being on top.

“I like the coaching staff,” said Green. “And they have good tradition. They are moving to the ACC, and that’s good too.”

Green has not set up any official visits. With his team undefeated on the year, he wants to concentrate on football before thinking about where and when he will take his official visits.

“I’m going to set up my visits after my season is over,” said Green. “I might go to a Maryland game on November 1st, but that’s it. I’m going to focus on football and wait for our season to end before thinking about my visits.”

Deptford is 5-0, thanks largely in part to Green’s play on offense and defense. He has rushed for 291 yards and scored seven touchdowns on offense. On defense, he has made 38 tackles, often catching double teams from opposing offenses.

“I think I’m playing well, but I think I could play a little bit better,” said Green. “I’m getting double teamed a lot on defense. I don’t mind sometimes because it opens things up for my teammates to make plays, but sometimes it does get frustrating.”

A solid student, Green carries a 2.8 grade point average and has scored close to 900 on his SAT’s.
