Robby Green, the 6-foot, 170-pound four-star cornerback from John Curtis High School in River Ridge, La., still hasn't set up any official visits yet and says he's not any closer to making a decision. "I want to take my trips and see how I feel," Green said. "I want to make a pros/cons list and compare everything.
"I don't have a specific order yet and I'm still really open. I don't know what I'm going to do."
Green, ranked as the No. 13 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, still favors Alabama, LSU, USC, Florida, Arizona State, Tennessee and Ole Miss. "Alabama and USC are probably recruiting me the hardest," he said. "I love the atmosphere out at Alabama and they’ve already won some big games this year and the new coaches are doing great.
"They went from being a losing team to totally turning it around and I'm just really impressed by everything that coach Nick Saban has done. I love the type of coach that he is and how hands-on he gets. He's a great mentor.
"I was surprised they lost to Florida State this weekend, but I talked to coach Saban about the game and he said they knew it would be a battle and how it's always tough playing at Florida State," Green said. "Florida State hadn't really been playing up to their level, but they showed that they are still a great team."
Green plans to attend the Alabama/LSU contest when they play on Nov. 3. This upcoming weekend he'll be at the LSU/Florida game (Oct. 6) in Baton Rouge.
"It's gonna be a battle," Green said, referring to the LSU/Florida game. "I'll be rooting for both. Even though Florida lost this week they'll be ready for LSU and will be trying to prove something. Florida losing to Auburn was really big. I didn't expect it to happen, but in college football anything can happen. If a team wins or loses, it doesn't matter because I just want to get on the field and contribute."
Another game that Green enjoyed watching this past weekend was USC/Washington. "USC really seemed to play down to Washington's level," he said. "They didn't execute well at all. But there's still a lot of season left and I think USC will get better. I really didn't expect that game to be so close either, but they missed a lot of opportunities that they normally take advantage of. They had a lot of chances to put that game away and never did.
"I'm being recruited by (linebacker) coach Ken Norton and he's a cool guy," Green said. "I like talking to him but we don't even really talk much about football. I like talking to him about life and school and stuff. He did tell me that I'd fit in well with their defense and that although they are loaded with athletes they make sure the best players play and it's a great place to go and get exposure. I love USC (former teammate is Trojan running back Joe McKnight) and always have. They really have everything to offer."
Although Green hasn't scheduled any official trips yet, he admits that the two programs he'll most likely visit for sure are Arizona State and Florida. "I've actually probably been the most impressed with Arizona State so far this season," he said. "They are still undefeated and I'm definitely gonna be keeping an eye on them.
"I haven't been to either school (Florida or Arizona State) yet and I want to see what they are like," he said. "Also, Florida is a great place to see a game and I've heard a lot about the Swamp."
Curtis is currently 3-1 and Green has 20 tackles, three interceptions, two blocked punts and one fumble recovery.
He reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 17 ACT.
