Green rushed for 2,024 yards and scored 27 touchdowns last season. He talked about his ability and the early attention during an interview from Los Angeles , where he had just wrapped up an unofficial visit to USC.
"I am fast, but speed is not everything when you are playing running back," he said. "You have to have quickness. You have to have vision and you have to be able to change directions. I am just working hard to excel in every part of my game."
On the recruiting front, Green said he's a fan of every school and has no favorites.
"I want to play wherever I go," he said. "Nobody goes to college expecting to sit on the bench. I also want to go to a place where the coaches care about you on and off the field."
The Cornhuskers are in the mix early for obvious reasons. Green's brother, Andrew, signed with Nebraska as a cornerback in the 2009 class.
"It's a pretty good place," Aaron Green said. "Plus, I just like the University of Nebraska ."
Aaron Green also said that he liked the visit to Southern California and that some have compared him to former Trojans running back Reggie Bush, who is now with the New Orleans Saints. Still, others compare him to current USC running back Joe McKnight, who ESPN.com ranked as the nation's No. 1 overall prospect in the Class of 2007 out of John Curtis High in River Ridge, La.
