You have no favorite boards.
He plans to visit FSU this weekend (they play BYU).
Texas, Cal and Nebraska in line for visits. A&M is trying to get in there through his former teammate Nate Askew.

Bobby...would the Texas coaches like to have Green & Rasco in Austin the same weekend? Or do they prefer to have separate OV's for these remaining recruits?
Their obvious preference would be for both of them to come to the banquet weekend so almost all of the committed players will be there.
But I feel strongly that they would welcome either player on any weekend, particularly Rasco because he is coming from further distance and is thinking about accelerating the process.

What's your take on Green? I saw the Steele vs Madison game and I feel Brown is going to be a special player, but, I don't know what to think about Green. Nothing really jumps out at me. he might be a "solid" player on the college level but he reminds me of a Cyrus Gray/Fozzy Whitaker player. Return kicks, punts, use some in the passing game but he is nowhere near an every down back.
Who does he remind you of and what are your thoughts on him being a big time college player?
I think Cyrus Gray is a fair comparison athletically, but I think he's more of a natural runner than Gray because a) he has better vision, b) he's a slightly more violent cutback runner and c) he has more patience. All of those combined allows him to make the defenders change angles more than Gray IMO.
My single biggest issue with Green is that I don't think he has *great* ball skills. He's not as natural a pass catcher as a Sims, Lasco or Brandon Williams, or even a Malcolm Brown. It's not that he's bad there, because that is far, far from the case (Sims is exceptional). But with a guy like that, you want plus ball skills, so you can use them in multiple ways, including motioning them wide of the numbers.

Well I've heard the saying that recruits "Talk" to each other.
Could it end up being a a positive for Texas if Green and Rasco visit FSU at the same time as opposed to separately, with Rasco possibly being "High" on Texas?....Most likely this is just over analyzing by recruitnik on my part, but you never know.....
Here's what Taylor Hamm had on Green...
"Green blew off every service out there but ours because of my relationship with him. Lets just say that we decided not to put up the video because he was clearly not in the mood to talk after the loss. It was a quick hitting interview so we didn't get to go in-depth with him like I would of liked. He's not doing many interview these days so it's hard to tell where he stands on those issues. I get the feeling he doesn't want to share the rock in Austin and NU is still very much on top because of his brother. I know Green is also high on FSU as well but the A&M staff has turned his recruitment over to Randy Jordan and Green did reach out to RJ recently like I reported. A&M still has a lot of ground to make up but they are willing to wait on the Madison product because of the sudden lack of depth at RB. FWIW- Green has pressure from his family to seriously consider A&M. I'll keep working on it for you guys."
Green has a good relationship with Nate Askew, a freshman for A&M. I think A&M may get a visit, but nothing is certain.
I don't really view Green as a priority.If he wants to come then great but I don't think the coaches should go out of their way to get him.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

I can not envision Mack and Greg with Malcolm here finding a way to get Green the ball or the number of touches in space that would maximize Green. The less options and distraction for our offense the better, simplify what you do and maximize the elite skill players to create confidence.
We have some players on offense who are not playing fast and that is confidence, similar to what Rick does to our bball team.
