Did you know?

An uncle, Gary Green, was an All-Pro corner for the Kansas City Chiefs.


"He'll be a great cover corner because he runs real well and has good instincts and good ball skills. He'll be a much better corner than he was a safety." - James Madison head coach Jim Streety

The gurus say

Ranked as the No. 48 cornerback prospect by Scouts Inc. Two-time all-city selection by the San Antonio Express-News.

About Green

Nebraska had to dodge a bullet when Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops made a late-January visit. More than half the Big 12 schools offered, and interest will be as heavy or heavier for his younger brother, Aaron, a sophomore tailback last season for James Madison. An older brother, Anthony, plays tailback at Alabama A&M. Andrew Green played cornerback as a high school junior but safety as a senior "because that's where we needed him," Streety said. Good size and rangy build helped him make 64 tackles, break up 11 passes and recover a fumble. Also handled return duties as a senior and took back one punt for a touchdown.

Our take

Nebraska invested heavily in cornerbacks, signing five, and Green would appear likely to redshirt his first season in Lincoln. Looks the part, with Zack Bowman-like size, and is a high school hurdler and sprinter. Future development will dictate how he separates himself from the others.
