Dang Red. I was just on the Cal's rival site to look at their recruiting status regarding RBs and was about to report it back here. You're quick on the keyboard man.
Whew. Okay. The article mentioned we haven't had a 5* back since Lucky... Mendoza was a 4* and then they said Rex was a 3. I was about to officially give up on Rivals and Scouts... Guess I'll have to delay the inevitable.Rivals rated him a 4**** 5.8 Position Ranking #9

On the Hoof: Very lean build with almost no body fat. He has the frame to add at least 15 more pounds of muscle mass. His build is similar to fellow Texan Lache Seastrunk.
Needs Improvement: Watching the ball all the way into his hands before turning up field is a necessity if he is to have an impact in the passing game. Green must also prove he has the durability to become an every-down back at the next level.
Most Impressive: Has the ability to change directions on a dime while reaching top speed in a blink of an eye. Green's speed makes him a homerun threat from any point on the field. His skill set could make him a threat as a return man in the kicking game.
Conclusion: Look for Green to get early looks as a return man in the kicking game. If he proves to have the toughness and smarts to pick up different blitzes he could also see time in long-yardage situations. If he stays healthy, he should become a star in the long run wherever he goes because of his sickening explosiveness.
