Playing in only his second varsity game and only a sophomore SA-Madison's Aaron Green just broke the city TD record and rushed for over 400 yards against Tivy. You will be hearing his name for many years to come.
Top player in the state of Texas for 2011, top RB in 2011, and probably the top player in 2011.
There is still a long way to go in the recruiting cycle for the Class of 2011, but already there are whispers that running back Aaron Green (San Antonio, Texas/Madison) could be special.
The 5-foot-11, 181-pounder holds verbal offers from Nebraska , Texas A&M, Georgia , Oklahoma and, most recently, Southern California . He is also at or near the top of whatever early running back boards these schools have. Texas and other programs that recruit the Lone Star State also have been showing him heavy attention, and he figures to have offers by the truckloads when things really kick into high gear after Sept. 1, when juniors can start receiving written offers from schools. RB Aaron Green is drawing comparisons to Saints RB Reggie Bush and Trojans RB Joe McKnight.
Five-star running back Aaron Green's decision to commit to Nebraska is one of the most significant gets for the Huskers in years.
The last time Nebraska landed a running back who was this highly rated was back in 2005 with Marlon Lucky, who was a consensus five-star back, although he never really lived up to his billing. Before that, the last big-name running back recruits who lived up to the hype were Lawrence Phillips, who was signed in 1993 and helped lead the Huskers to a national title in 1994, and Ahman Green, who was signed in 1995 and played a key role in two Nebraska national championships.
