Get the first look at one of the top cornerbacks in the 2014 class.
Many of the top schools from the ACC and SEC will be seeking the services of 2014 cornerback Wesley Green out of Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King Jr. High School. The 5'10, 165-pound Green is a consensus 4-star prospect and one of the top cornerbacks in the class. Rivals and 247 Sports pegs him at four stars, while Scout gives Green a 3-star rating. He is ranked at the tenth-best cornerback in the nation by 247 Sports and the ninth-best overall recruit in the state of Georgia.
As of March, Green held reported offers from major programs, including Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, and Auburn.
Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: Green has decent height for a cornerback at 5'10, though at just 165 pounds, he will need to add weight. His best attributes are his quickness and his instincts. He seems to always be around the football and makes a lot of plays. He has good ball skills and has a good feel for the game.
He is aggressive in coverage and it's easy to project him being a pest at the next level thanks to his ability to quickly flip his hips. He reminds me a bit of a Tay Cody or Ronde Barber style of player, and a short zone system (cover-two, perhaps) would allow him to best use his instincts, though he'll need to add weight to his frame.
Despite his size, Green is a willing tackler and throws his weight around, though he needs to use better form and not leave his feet so often. I'm also not sure of Green's top speed. I don't believe him to be slow, but he doesn't look like a 4.4 40 player. He is probably quicker than he is fast.
