Derrick Green knows little about SEC hires
By Dave Hooker
Four-star RB Derrick Green is ready to learn more about two coaches who will soon be pursuing him.
The ESPN 150 tailback from Richmond (Va.) Hermitage was caught a bit unaware when former Cincinnati coach Butch Jones was named Tennessee's new coach. Jones replaces Derek Dooley, who was fired in November.
when asked if he knew anything about Jones, Green said, "No, not really."
Newly hired Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has had a bit more time to set out his recruiting plan. Green said the Tigers' coach is supposed to call him tonight.
Green is also considering Miami, Oregon, Michigan and Ole Miss.
