Green's ACT Took Precedence On Saturday

Dahu Green

It was publicized that Oklahoma City (Westmoore), Okla. wide receiver Dahu Green was going to be one of the prospects in attendance at the Oklahoma Red-White Game on Saturday, but Green wasn't able to make it.

"My ACT kept me late," Green said when we caught up with him on Sunday watching a friend's baseball game. "I haven't been to any spring football games yet, not yet."

Green is, at least in my opinion and I saw him three times in person last fall, the best receiver prospect in Oklahoma. He is a big body at 6-4 and now over 190 pounds. He has very good ball skills and makes tough catches along with securing the easier ones. He finished with 40 receptions for 700 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

A big bonus is his ability to block which was visible on the outside in several games last season, including ones I saw with Broken Arrow and Lawton. That is something I'm not as accustomed to seeing in a high school wide out.

As for his recruiting, Green has only been in Oklahoma for a little over a year and a half as he moved from southern California and the community of Hemet.

"I'm still interested in USC, San Diego State, and UCLA," Green said. "I'm feeling the love from Washington State, Louisville, and Indiana, schools like that. I think Tennessee is interested and I would really like to go to their spring game and show them I'm interested back.

"I'm interested in schools that are interested in me," Green continued. "If they show me the love then I will show the love back. Other than that, schools I'm interested in are the schools in California and Oklahoma State."

Green said he wasn't so sure he would hit camps as much as he said he just wanted to visit schools he was interested in that are interested in him. He felt like he did well on his ACT. He also recently attended the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas.

"I felt like I did decent, but that I could do a lot better," Green said of his experience at the Nike camp in DeSoto, Texas. "I felt happy with the way I did in the drills and I competed well."

Green did not run a forty at the Nike but showed a 32-foot power ball toss and a 34-inch vertical jump in SPARQ testing.
