With offers from Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and more, Eagles Landing Christian Academy (McDonough, GA) product Keyante Green is one of the most highly sought after running backs in the 2013 class. The 5’8″, 190-pound prospect isn’t in a hurry to make his college choice, but he did use this offseason to explore several schools, including Virginia Tech.
“It was very exciting to go to camps, have conversations with other players, and just have fun,” Green said of his recruiting experiences this offseason. “Visiting colleges opened my mind about things. It was fascinating to see how everything is at these colleges. You really have to go to each school to see how it is.”
Accompanied by ELCA head coach Jonathan Gess and fellow Chargers rising junior standout Isaac Rochell, Green was in Blacksburg on July 10 for Tech’s second one-day camp of 2011.
“I really came there just open minded,” Green said. “I didn’t really get to tour the school, but the weight room was pretty nice. I didn’t really see the stadium, but going through the hall to the coaches’ offices, there is a trophy room that looks out onto the practice field. That was really nice. The indoor facilities are pretty nice.”
Green, who spoke at length with Tech Associate Head Coach/Running Backs coach Shane Beamer, added, “All the coaches are great. They are awesome. I can tell they know what they’re doing.
“Coach Shane Beamer told me they were really interested in me. He said they really liked me, and they wished me a great season.”
Virginia Tech is one of five schools that have piqued Green’s interest.
“Growing up, I always liked Tennessee,” Green said when asked if any schools stood out so far. “I don’t know why, but it was my dream school. Once they offered, that caught my attention knowing they were my dream school. Georgia caught my attention too. It’s home-state. It’s close to home. Virginia Tech caught my attention too because they run the ball a lot. South Carolina caught my attention when they offered. And Florida State. I went down to the campus there. They offered me at camp. Taking a tour there, it was very nice.”
