Virginia Tech has been Deptford (NJ) fullback Michael Green’s favorite team for the past few months. This weekend, he had a chance to see his favorite team for the first time and the experience did not disappoint.
“It was really nice down there,” Green said. “I liked it. Cedric Humes was my host. He was talking about how nice the school is and how I could have a chance to play early since they don’t have another fullback other than Doug Easlick. The atmosphere was great. It was like I was still at home.”
In addition to spending time with Humes, Green also talked to Marcus Vick, Bryan Randall, Vegas Robinson, and fellow recruit Olu Hall.
“I met Olu,” Green said. “I hung out with him for over half the night. We talked about going to the same school together.”
Green met with the Virginia Tech coaches today, specificially Running backs Coach Billy Hite, who delivered a message to him before he left.
“Coach Hite told me that all he wants for Christmas is me,” Green said. “He said other schools want me and they need me. That felt pretty good.”
Michael made the trip with his parents, both of whom were very impressed as well.
“My parents felt comfortable with Coach Cavanaugh,” Green said. “They really liked it down there also.”
Green did not commit on his official visit, however the Hokies remain the clear team to beat. He will make official visits to Indiana, Minnesota, and possibly Maryland next weekend.
“Nah, I didn’t commit,” Green said. “I want to take a couple more visits and see what happens. Virginia Tech is still my favorite. I’ll probably decide sometime in late January, before Signing Day.”
On the gridiron, Green led Deptford to a state championship and the first-ever 12-0 season in school history. Deptford defeated Hammonton 17-14 to capture the title.
“It was the greatest feeling,” Green said. He played fullback and linebacker for Coach Al Orio. “I’ve always thought about it but when it happens it’s awesome.”
