'13 VA RB Derrick Green (Michigan commit)

Running Back
Richmond, Virginia
Hermitage

Ht:6'0"
Wt:215 lbs
40:4.37 secs
Shuttle:4.08
Vertical:32 inches
Class:2013 (High School)

Coming to camp this month. According to VQ, he is now 220 and ran a 4.31 in the forty at Penn St. this summer.

Quote:
The big and talented tailback is going to be at Tennessee's camp on July18th. He's very excited to see Tennessee for the first time and he's already learned quite a bit about the Volunteers.

"They have a great football team and a great tradition," Green said. "They know how to utilize their running backs. They have a great staff and the school has great academics. I've not been up there yet, but I plan to get up there for a game this fall."

A decision for Green is not going to happen anytime soon. He's got a long way to go until signing day in February of 2013. But he does know what he's looking for and he hopes to find it sooner than later.

Derrick Green is an absolute beast. Will be a very highly ranked 2013 RB.

Unfortunately, somebody is going to have to tell him we are only taking 1 Green at RB in 2013. And that is Keyante.

If he wants to come Keyante Green will have to realize we're taking more than one back.

He's a fast big back. I wouldn't mind seeing him run more physical for a back of his size. He's a very good talent though.

One good Green deserves another IMO.

Maybe CDD said, "Listen, I'm not taking any back in 2013 not named Green."

Simple misunderstanding.

"I was just offered by West Virginia this week, and I've been talking to a lot of college coaches," he reported. "I'm talking to Purdue, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Alabama, Oregon, Clemson, Michigan State, and others. I'm getting a lot of recruiting attention."

"My top six schools, in no order, would be Penn State, Ohio State, Alabama, Oregon, Michigan State and Tennessee," he said. "I'm going to take things real slow this year and let my official visits help me make my decision next year."

It is nice to see him run out of the shot gun and mainly run north and south.

"They stand high right now," Green said. "I really like coach Sirmon and coach (Derek) Dooley. I liked the entire campus and the program. They are definitely really high right now. I just like the entire atmosphere."

Sirmon has been in contact with Green a lot and he's made the talented tailback a priority. Green has taken notice and wants to get back down to Knoxville for a game.

"I talked with him yesterday," Green said. "I told him I wanted to come up for a game and we are working on me coming down for the South Carolina game. Hopefully it will work out. He's a down to earth coach. He's an overall great guy. He doesn't put any pressure on me and I like that."

"I'm an all-purpose back, but I'm a north and south runner," Green said. "I'm fast, but I get downhill. I'm going to do whatever it takes to score. I go all out on every play. I do whatever I need to do to help my team get a victory."

Kid is a STUD!! I'd take Keyante or Derrick in the '13 class.
