Four-star CB Nyland Green (6-3 170) of Covington, GA is not in a rush to end his recruiting. Green said Monday night that unlike many of the top recruits in the country, he’s not ready to commit. In fact, he’s far from it. Clemson has been on him as hard as anybody. He’s also hearing some from USC but the Gamecocks don’t appear to be in the same place with him as Clemson and some others at this point.
“I really haven’t come down to a certain group just yet but I’m working on it,” Green said. “I’ll come out with that real soon. It will be like a top five.”
Green has been a frequent visitor to Clemson, for a camp, for games and for junior days. There’s a lot of familiarity and comfort between the two sides, and plenty of communication.
“I hear from them pretty often, from Coach (Mike) Reed and Coach (Brent) Venables,” Green said. “Couple of times a week, mostly texting with them and sometime on the phone. They really want me bad down there. I’m a main part for them and they surely would love to have me. “I’m feeling really good about it (his view of Clemson). I’m just sitting back and enoying it. “(They like) that I’m a long, powerful, physical corner. I can move, I have great hips, great feet and great ball skills.”
Green also has visited USC, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee and several others. They all remain in contact along with Alabama, Florida State, Florida, LSU and others. Green has pinpointed what will seperate one school from the rest.
“A school that not only treats me as an athlete, but treats me as well with what I do outside of football,” Green said.
Green said it’s possible he’ll make his decision before his season. And he’s planning on signing early and enrolling in January.
