There are few running backs in South Carolina that had more of an impact on their team’s performance this past fall than Jarvis Green (5-11 192). The 2023 prospect accounted for over 2,300 all-purpose yards and scored 39 touchdowns in leading Dutch Fork to an appearance in the 5-A state championship game. And while his team didn’t bring home another title to the Midlands, Green certainly garnered some attention with his eye-popping numbers.
“Everything is coming along great,” Green says with regards to the attention he is getting on the recruiting trail. “Starting to heat up a little bit more and coaches are starting to reach out to me a little bit more.”
In April, Green visited Clemson for the spring game, while attending a practice at Wake Forest. He also made a trip down to Tallahassee to check out Florida A&M University and he visited Memphis. In March he was able to check out a Clemson practice and visit Miami of Ohio
With regards to the Tigers, Green is tapping into an age-old sentiment.
“They just told me to be patient, just do what I do, play how I play. Just be myself and eventually it will all fall into place,” Green elaborated when discussing his talks with Clemson. “They look pretty good. Clemson is a family bond, and they make you feel you’re home when you’re at Clemson.”
He’s developed quite a relationship with Tigers running backs coach C.J. Spiller, partly because Spiller is keeping a close eye on him.
“We talk every other week, probably twice a week. He’s just talking about life in general and everything,” noted Green. “He checks up on me. He likes my family. He just likes all the tools that I have and just the way I can find the hole and create some yards out of nothing.”
And while Clemson is keeping an eye on the rising senior, USC has not shown similar interest in the All-State running back.
“I have no contact with nobody at South Carolina.”
He currently has offers from SC State, Appalachian State, Charlotte, East Tennessee State, Fordham, Gardner-Webb, and Memphis. Green says the offer from Memphis came about when Charlotte assistant Sean Dawkins took over as the Tigers running backs coach in March. “I’ve got a really good bond with him.”
Green is hoping to make his college decision at some point during the fall or by the end of his senior campaign.
