Green talks about commitment
"It's kind of a big family decision, so I wanted to make sure she was comfortable with the place and with the coaches. I wanted her to see the place a little bit."
Green dropped his bombshell in the coaches' office. "About one o'clock. Noon, one o'clock - somewhere around there," he said when asked when his commit took place. "I was just in with coach Mendenhall and coach Doman. We were talking a little bit, talking about the program, and I told them this is where I want to be next year.
"They said they didn't offer me just because of my on-the-field performance. The researched it - my grades, off the field, and on the field. It was all three things. They said they were really confident in the offer and they weren't going to offer anyone after me. That told me a lot. They said they were really excited about me and that I hoped I made my decision to come down and play for them."
But Kelly's reaction to the whole BYU package gave Green all he needed to pull the trigger. "She's super excited," he said. "She is really excited about the whole Honor Code thing; I think that's any parent's dream. And the coaches, she said she is really excited for me to play for them. She's pumped."
There was word that Green might be working out in front of the Washington coaches this week at their Rising Stars camp, but that's done and dusted. "Coach Doman said that when you commit here, you're here," said Green. He said if the Miami Dolphins called and wanted you to skip college football and play for them, you tell them no - you're a Cougar. So that's my final decision. I'm a BYU Cougar."
There's only one more piece of information that Green needs from the BYU coaches, and he expects to hear soon from them about any thoughts toward early enrollment. "The coaches were going to talk about that and see if I should enroll early," he said. "I would have to rework my senior year a little bit to get my required classes out of the way early. I could do it if needed.
"If they told me just to stick out my senior year - no problem. But if they told me they needed me down there, I'll be down there. It's all based on whatever the coaches need."
