Conway High School’s (SC) 6-5, 265-pound defensive line target Hivera Green has set dates for 2 official visits and is trying to set a date for a third. Where has he set trips to?

“I’ve scheduled visits to South Carolina on January 7th and Clemson on January 14th,” Green said. “I’m supposed to schedule something with Virginia Tech, but I haven’t gotten a date set. It most likely will be in January because I have the Shrine Bowl coming up.”

The University of South Carolina was able to enter the picture again after the hiring of Steve Spurrier, who was been hot on the trail of one of the state’s top prospects. Spurrier has already garnered a commitment from Green’s teammate, running back Bobby Wallace.

“Steve Spurrier called and re-offered me a South Carolina scholarship,” Green said. “I think if Lou Holtz was still the coach I probably would have no interest in them. Since Spurrier took over though, I think he’ll get a good staff in there and it’s exciting to see who he will bring in. I’m not really leaning to South Carolina, but they re-offered and I’ll take a visit and see how it goes.”

Right now, Green says Clemson, South Carolina and Virginia Tech are the main schools he’s considering. Oklahoma was in-school yesterday and Ohio State will be in-school soon as well. Neither have offered yet but are considering doing so, and if they do both could be in contention for official visits.

Green listed the 2 schools at the top of his list right now.

“I feel like Clemson and Virginia Tech are on top and they are even,” Green said. “Those 2 schools have been with me for a long time and say I’ll have a spot no matter when I decide. Virginia Tech showed me a lot this year. They beat some good teams. What they showed me was impressive. Clemson did too. I feel like, at both places, I’d have the chance to go in and play early as a freshman. I think Coach Wiles and [the Clemson recruiter] are two of the best recruiters in the country.”

Virginia Tech is expected in-home with Green this week.
