Off and Running
Brandon Green

The lone campus in Brandon Green's top six (Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, Michigan State and West Virginia) that he hasn't visited yet is West Virginia. "They've impressed me a lot," he said. "They are running and passing the ball really well. They have a great running back and quarterback and are very balanced. They're a top team right now and I think they'll be good for a while..."

Brandon Green, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound three-star wide receiver from Robeson High School in Chicago, Ill., already has 11 touchdowns despite missing the first game of his season. Robeson is currently 3-1.

"I don't really get to watch too much college football because we play on Saturday," Green said. "I'm always checking out the scores, but that's why I can't really get out to any games."

The one game he does plan to see in person is the Minnesota/Ohio State affair on Sept. 29. "I'm taking my official visit that weekend," he said. "But that's the only one I have set so far.

"I like the coaches at Minnesota," he said. "They are all really nice and they are an up-and-coming program. They are losing a wide receiver so there will be a spot open and I'd be able to fill it and play early - possibly as a freshman."

Although Green (ranked the No. 53 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com) denies a leader, he continues to favor Minnesota, West Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern and Michigan State. All have offered (14 total).

"I'm waiting until the end of the season to narrow it down," Green said. "Every school is calling me and trying to get me to come on a visit or at least come to a game. I just want to focus on my senior year first…then think about all that (recruiting)."

The only school in Green's top six that he hasn't visited yet is West Virginia. "They've impressed me a lot," he said. "They are running and passing the ball really well. They have a great running back and quarterback and are very balanced. They're a top team right now and I think they'll be good for a while."

While Green says that environment or distance won't be a factor for him, he admits that he felt very comfortable at Iowa. "I really like the town," he said. "It's a great place and they have good tradition too. I just felt really comfortable there."

Green reports a 2.7 core GPA and a 13 ACT, which he plans to retake in October.
