"Air Force has a really good offense and it's a great football program," Nick Green said. "They have a lot to offer and the education is great. I also love the big rivalries they have with Navy and Army." Green's only scholarship offer is from Air Force as has been the case for months. He has set up an official visit to see Army on Jan. 5.

Nick Green, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound three-star quarterback from Central Catholic High School in Portland, Ore., has helped his team reach the quarterfinals (8-4 record) of the playoffs. He has roughly 2,700 yards passing for 29 touchdowns. He also has around 600 rushing yards and eight more scores.

Green's only scholarship offer is from Air Force as has been the case for months. He now favors the Falcons slightly over Idaho State, Montana State, Montana, Northern Arizona and Army and has an official visit set up to West Point on Jan. 5.

"I'm really hearing a lot from these six schools," Green said. "They've all asked for some senior highlight tape and they've all offered me official visits. I'll try to take as many trips as I can."

Green was previously also being recruited by Stanford and Washington, but both have since dropped off. "Stanford was recruiting me as a safety and when I told them I wanted to play quarterback, they stopped recruiting me." Green is ranked by Scout.com as the nation's No. 37 signal caller.

"Washington was really interested and seemed to be close to offering, but they had a few guys commit and are now full. I guess if something happens I'm next on the list, but who knows.

"I'll wait until Signing Day to decide and see what happens before then," he said. "I'd consider gray shirting, but not walking-on. That's not something I'm thinking about.

"Air Force has a really good offense and it's a great football program," he said. "They have a lot to offer and the education is great. I also love the big rivalries they have with Navy and Army."

Green reports a 3.8 core GPA and a 1490 SAT, which he is retaking on Dec. 1.
