One of the top players in the state of South Carolina checked out the Georgia/South Carolina game earlier this month. This weekend Hivera Green, a 6-5, 268-pound defensive end/defensive tackle prospect out of Conway High School, plans on making another unofficial visit. This time, he has planned a trip up north to one of his favorite schools.
“I went to the South Carolina/Georgia game,” Green said. “It was a good game. I’m not really considering them, but I thought I’d open it up a little bit. This Saturday I’m supposed to go to the Virginia Tech/West Virginia game. I know it’s supposed to be an exciting game. I’ll see how I like the environment.”
Virginia Tech joins Michigan as the 2 schools Green says will more than likely get official visits.
“I’m going to take official visits to Michigan and Virginia Tech,” Green said. “As far as the other visits and the other schools go, I’m staying open minded. I’ve heard from Michigan, Virginia Tech, Kansas State, Tennessee, South Carolina and Clemson this month.
“One of the reasons I’m going to visit Michigan and Virginia Tech is the way both play defense. Both teams are playing well this year. They are good programs and I think they fit me well football-wise and academically.”
Green is not really considering the in-state schools. Location is not a factor in his recruiting process.
“A lot of people ask me that (laughs), but location is not a factor,” Green said.
In a previous update, Green had listed Florida as the 3rd school likely to get an official visit. The Gators have fallen off this month, largely due to lack of communication.
“I only talk to their coaches every now and then,” Green said of Florida. “I talk to coaches from Michigan and Virginia Tech every week.”
This season, Green has helped his team to a 5-0 record. The versatile defensive lineman, who plays both tackle and end in high school, has no positional preference on the next level.
“I feel like I play both well,” Green said. “I don’t care if I play defensive end or defensive tackle…as long as I’m out there playing.”
