Deptford (NJ) fullback/linebacker prospect Michael Green made a verbal commitment Monday to the Virginia Tech Hokies. The 6-1, 235 pound prospect informed Coach Jim Cavanaugh of his decision during Cavanaugh’s in-school visit on Monday.
“I told Coach Cavanaugh when he came to my school,” Green said. “He was real excited. He said I’m going to have a great time down there.”
Green had named Virginia Tech as his leader for at least one month prior to his December 12th official visit. The visit was what sealed the commitment for Virginia Tech, as Green and his parents had an excellent time in Blacksburg.
“It was real nice,” Green said of the official visit. “It was like being back home. The coaches and the players were all great, and it was just a great time. My parents loved it down there. They were real happy with my decision. They had wanted me to choose Virginia Tech for a long time because they got such a great vibe on the visit. But they were letting me play out my recruitment and really supported me throughout.”
Green acknowledged that he will likely suit up at the fullback position for Virginia Tech. With 2003 starter Doug Easlick running out of eligibility, he believes there is a chance he could play as a true freshman.
“They are talking to me about fullback, because that is the quickest spot for me to get on the field,” Green said. “I think there is a great chance for me to play in my first year.”
In the end, Green chose Virginia Tech over Minnesota and Indiana. He has cancelled previously scheduled official visits to each of the other two schools. He becomes the 15th verbal commitment for Tech’s 2004 recruiting class.
