At 5'11 and 220 pounds, Derrick Green of Hermitage High School in Richmond, Va. is an imposing figure. Never mind that he looks 25 years old with the build of a 5th year senior in college, Green doesn't just look scary, he runs scary.

Green has quick feet and excellent balance, but many big backs on the high school level tend to think they're scat backs. A player of Green's caliber is still the best athlete on the field, but make no mistake about it, Green runs angry. While he can make a move and break and arm tackle, which he frequently does, he's not going to hit the ground until he has punished a defender.

Green is being recruited by teams from all over the country including Michigan, Tennessee, Clemson, Oregon, Virginia Tech and more.

Green is currently rated 4-Stars by Scout and the No. 17 running back in the nation. In this scout' eyes, that's probably not high enough for Green.

See him in action in this presentation by FOX Sports Next.



Scott began with Scout as the Southeast Regional Manager in 2002. In addition to his recruiting responsibilities, Scott developed and ran the National Scout Combine series from 2005 thru 2008. Scott has been Director of Scouting since 2006 and oversees the Recruiting Rankings for Scout.
