    Aaron Green to Transfer

    http://nebraska.rivals.com/default.asp

    Best of luck to the young man, sorry to see him go before he had a chance to mature.

    I think its paid content, but the headline is all you really need. Sean Callahan is reporting it.

    Going off the discussion in the recruiting forum looks like they'll be looking to take two backs now.

    Too bad. I really thought he was gonna develop into somethin special this year. From his comments since he's been here I always got the impression he had a hard time transitioning from being the man in high school...just my interpretation though.

    Good luck to him and I hope it works out for him. Tough to lose him though.

    Unless he's earned a spot in the two deep, absolutely.

    And then there were two (ex-freshmen) running backs.

    Not the kind of stuff you like to see happen. Talent leaving feeling like they are being misused.

    Can't hardly blame him since our coaches seem unwilling to let anyone other than the starters play (see Taylor and Rex) at key positions.

    Yeah if you paid attention to his comments it made it pretty clear that if any of the three were gonna leave it would be him

    Looking for Green to land on his feet in the Big 12. He's looking at Baylor, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, TCU and Houston.

    If you counted up all the RB carries last year that weren't Rex, it wasn't a bad number for a backup, but to divide that number by three meant someone was going to feel shorted.

    Sorry, but this has home sick written all over it.

    Why leave now? He was 2A/2B with Ameer, heading into his sophomore season. After one more season, he'd have every chance to be the clear cut number one back. He would've had solid reps this season, and two more seasons as a potential every-down back.

    If he wants more playing time, sitting a year for a transfer doesn't make sense. Green didn't even want to red shirt.

    Guess so, 24 carries for a big time Texas recruit evidently isn't very satisfying. Oh well, we did get Rex the record for most carries in a game (even if he just came in to kneel for it).

    Green, often the more outspoken of the two friends, has been antsy to begin this season since the end of last season. The five-star recruit from San Antonio got just 24 carries and one reception last year. Abdullah got 42 combined carries and catches. Burkhead got 305.
    "I felt like I should have played more last year," Green said. "I knew I was good enough. It was frustrating. Out of my control. So I just prayed about it. And in the offseason — every squat rep, every bench rep — I was thinking about getting on the field. And what I would do. I was really motivated to improve. Catching. Running routes. Running outside. Running inside. Everything."

    I believe there IS far more to this than we know...but, I don't believe it has anything to do with being home sick.
