RB Green heading to Tallahassee


It's been hard to catch St. Pete Catholic (St. Petersburg, Fla.) running back Ryan Green this season because he's been running full speed with the track team.

But the 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior will slow down long enough to check out FSU's spring game this weekend according to Ryan's father, Vader Green.

"We're going to head up to Tallahassee after Ryan's track meet on Friday," said Vader Green. "There's been a lot of back-and-forth conversation between Ryan and the FSU coaches, so things are still good with them."

Green visited Florida last week for a few hours but could not stay for the entire Orange and Blue game.

"We had a prior engagement with our family and we only caught about half the game," Vader Green added. "We met with Coach [Will] Muschamp and a few of the other coaches so it was fine."

Green is planning on attended several camps as well, including the Jimbo Fisher football camp, Friday Night Lights in Gainesville and out-of-state camps at Ole Miss and possibly Alabama.

"We're going to hit the road more in the summer after school," Vader Green said. "Some schools we're going to camp at and others we'll just be there on unofficial visits."

Green has over 30 offers including Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, LSU, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Auburn and Illinois.

Vader Green said a decision probably won't come for a while.

"Ryan is going to have the opportunity to see everything he needs to see, because I'm not going to allow him to make a commitment and then back off of it," Vader Green said. "That's not going to happen with us.

"So instead of rushing to make a decision it's better to allow him to see everything and digest it all before deciding which college is the right fit."

Vader Green added that Ryan could cut his list into a top 10 by the end of the summer.
