Derrick Green is one of the top running back recruits in the country. Out of Richmond (Va.) Hermitage High School, Green runs with good power, acceleration and balance.
I recently had this to say about Green in Run on running back recruits coming:
Green is a consensus four-star running back and is one of the top remaining prizes for a pro-style offense. He runs hard and always falls forward. The contenders? Michigan and Auburn. Green has scheduled an official visit to Oregon, perhaps because of his experience at Nike's The Opening, and any time Oregon gets a recruit on campus it must be considered a contender. Still, most think he ends up at Michigan due to program stability.
After watching the tape, do you think Green should be a five-star? Do you believe he would be a fit in a spread offense like Oregon? Where do you think Green will land? Let us know in the comments.
