6-5, 255-pound Conway High School (SC) defensive lineman Hivera Green has made one other unofficial visit since going down to Virginia Tech one month ago.
“I went to Clemson for the N.C. State game,” Green said. “It was a pretty good trip. It was a nice college town. I had the chance to meet the coaches. They talked about being an in-state player and they said that I would have the chance to start as a true freshman.”
He compared Clemson’s atmosphere with Virginia Tech’s.
“I think Virginia Tech got them beat a little bit,” Green said. “The visit [to Virginia Tech] hasn’t worn off. No other college has measured up to it.”
Because of his earlier experience in Blacksburg, Green named Virginia Tech as his top school and it appears that nothing has changed.
“You could say that Virginia Tech is at the top of the list,” Green said. “I talk to them every week…mainly Coach Wiles. He asks how I’m doing and basically tells me what the experience up there would be like when I come back up there.”
Green has helped Conway to a 10-1 regular season record. Conway takes on Marlboro County this weekend in the first round of the playoffs. Green was also recently selected to the NC/SC Shrine Bowl. For now, Green will focus on the conclusion of his senior season and preparing for the Shrine Bowl.
“I haven’t set exact dates,” Green said. “I’m thinking about taking official visits to Virginia Tech of course, Tennessee, Clemson, Michigan and maybe one more. The visits will come after my season and after the Shrine bowl [on December 18th].”
