SIGNED RB Aaron Green

Recommended Posts

Noticed on Rivals that we offered.. Does it say that we are in the lead??

I am pretty sure he is a 2011 prospect so it is waaaaayyyyyy too early to tell.

IMO Aaron Green is ONE main reason we are only going to take a RB in this class if he is one of the best. That way we can tell him that we didn't even take a running back last class and your bro is on the team as well. I find myself getting anxious about this guy, but I also thought that we would have a great shot with Chris Whaley and he jumped on Texas' ship as soon as they offered.

Am I missing something here, is this the same Aaron Green who is the younger brother of NU DB recruit Andrew Green? If so, isn't he a 2011 prospect?

We have a good shot here. One thing I think we need to do is succeed where we failed with Dillard's little brother. We were in good on Lynn til OU wiped the floor with us. Major schools are going to be after Aaron, we have to show we can go toe-to-toe with the major schools on our sched in OU and VT, winning the other games would help too of-course.

 

 

Aaron seems like a good kid, and an heck of a talent, I like our chances here as long as we can keep making advances on the field.

These are totally different situations. Gabe Lynn never seemed to show that playing with his brother was a big deal to him, and always seemed very distant and emotionless towards the whole thing. Green however, has stated that where his brother is going is a huge deal to him, and he's talked about how much he enjoys our coaching staff, etc. etc.

IMO its looking very good that we land Green. We have his brother already signed and we might not even take a running back this year. Helu and Castille will both be gone when he gets on campus and, this might just be me, but I think by that time Burkhead will be our number 1 with the number two wide open for Green to take. I can't help but imagine having, Cody Green, Kyler Reed, Ben Cotton, Antonio Bell, Khiry Cooper, Marcus Mendoza, Rex Burkhead, and Aaron Green for skill positions. That would be the most talent, ON PAPER, that we've had in a long time.

I hope you guys are right!

 

It would a major recruiting coup (even if we have his brother) to pull a talent like that out of Texas.

 

Especially since it seems like Texas is also very interested in him.

Right now I'm feeling pretty good about our chances with Aaron. Hopefully Andrew will have a good Summer and Fall and give us a leg up on the competition.

 

And if Chris Whaley starts showing signs of being the next Ricky Williams maybe Texas will have a disadvantage going in.

Green is in the 2011 class, he is just a sophomore. He is a great hurdler. He is fast, and plays in a ground oriented spread and I-formation. He isn't playing the DFW powers, but he is in a tough district. Dixon lives near Waco, so that was good choice. Whaley played 3A schools and could not get his team to the playoffs.

I may be behind... but he had the 9 TD game last year right?

Green is going to the Texas camp on June 14. He told rivals that no one really stands out as a favorite right now...

He will be a Husker when its all said and done. The kid is a junior to be, and he wants to be recruited by all the big boys just like all the best players do.

Yes he did. He came up to help his brother finally move in....

 

Green on coaches:

 

"I know coach Brown because he was the one who recruited my brother," Green said. "He was just joking around and trying to tackle me. Coach Sanders, he and him were chasing me around trying to tackle me and stuff. They were just playing around. Usually that's not what you see in coaches, but that's just them being themselves and having fun. I like that."

 

It sounds to me like he will be extremely hard to recruit. He likes the idea of playing with his brother but it's not a necessity. He might head to OU and USC to check them out this summer. I wouldn't count him as 'N' by all means.

From what you reported, it does not sound like he will be extremely hard to recruit at all. One of the main factors in a kid commiting is the relationship they have with the coaches.

 

he is very close to his brother

he has a strong Christian faith( who better to recruit him then Coach Brown)

he has seen game day atmosphere in Lincoln.

 

You are right though, its way to early to count him N.

I would be shocked if he does not commit to NU.

I dont know if I would go that far. Ou and Texas are going to be after Green with both barrels. Yes we have set a great foundation and an inside track with big bro but this is FAR from over.

You're correct on your 3 points but he's already said he doesn't have to play with his brother. I only reported 1 quote from an entire article (b/c you can't post premium articles on this message board). Thinking that you'd be shocked if he doesn't end up N (not you Huskers Forever) just says you are looking at this situation through rose colored glasses. Anytime Texas (his home school), OU (Adrian Peterson), and USC (Reggie Bush) come calling, we have an uphill battle. Family ties are very important and the faith based system installed at Nebraska gives us an edge but in the end kids want to win championships and play in the NFL. By all means he can do both of those at Nebraska but for a 16/17 year old, it probably seems easier at the aforementioned schools.

 

All in all, I don't want to get in to a debate about this b/c it's WAY too early to do so. I personally would cut off a hand to watch this kid play ball at Nebraska, I just don't want to be disappointed by thinking he's going to when it's his junior year still.

Having his brother is a huge help but do any of you guys know if that makes it easier to recruit, in other words if he comes to visit his brother during a dead period is it reasonable to think the staff can talk to him since he has a brother on the team? Anyone know how that works?

The coaches are not allowed any contact with him during a dead period. That means even if he is on campus during a dead period. But the good news is if Aaron is on campus visiting his brother, used his own money to get up here, and its not a dead period then yeah the coaches can talk to him all they want. Since they are pretty close brothers, as most have said, there is a pretty good chance he will come to see him as much as he can. I would say that is a really good thing for Nebraska. To really seal the deal I think we need to keep winning and show we are headed in the right direction.

Key might be his brother's experiences this fall and the next year. Many a recruiting expert had Bryce Brown following his brother to Miami, but that didn't happen.

Well said Pete. Nebraska just needs to focus on winning and the rest will sort itself out. I totally agree though that Andrew's experiences here will be some pretty big factors in what Aaron decides to do. I have to say that I would love to see 3 Greens wearing that N.

He was just on HI Radio, and it appears he is extremely impressed by Coach Brown and his faith. While I wouldn't call him N, I think we have just as good a chance as anyone else.

True but that was primarily due to the fact that at the time Bryce was getting ready to sign, his brother wasn't sure he was even staying at Miami himself.

It's not an 'uphill battle' for us in regards to Aaron. If anything, other schools are trying to catch up to us in his recruitment.

yeah you're correct other schools are playing catch up to Bo and company but it is still an uphill battle. when was the last time we got a top 5 RB that every one else wanted??? you better not say Lucky b/c USC didn't want him. Until we consistently pull in 5 stars, every time we go after one it will be an uphill battle....even if his older brother plays at Nebraska.

If anyone wants to get a better feel for how Aaron feels regarding us and recruiting in general, I would def recommend listening to the HI Radio with him... it's free. He talks alot about his faith, his bro getting moved in, and how he has developed a great bond with coach Brown, calling him a good, spiritual man. He also said "that might need to be the place I need to be." Apparently, Andrew ended up picking us because he felt spiritually comfortable here, and no where else. Definitely interesting... we do seem to have a good start. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders and is ready to make a smart decision. Aaron talked about wanting to grow the best he could on the field, in the classroom, and spiritually.

No, it's still not an uphill battle. Right now we are almost in cruise control with our lead for Aaron.

 

And yes, USC did want Lucky. Carroll even made it a point to visit Lucky's ballgames while committed to us in hopes of getting him to switch. Plus whats it matter when teams like LSU and Florida came into Cali (which they never do) to offer a kid?

From what I have read the two brothers have a very close bond with one and other. I doubt that they would want to be apart at different colleges. JMO.

Aaron Green was just moved up to the number 1 player in all of texas for the 2011 class. I know it's a long way away but I can't help but to think of Cody Green, Burkhead, Aaron Green, Antonio Bell, Kyler Reed and Cooper all on the same offense. Talk about potential!

He'd be in the incoming class right after Q and Helu are gone, a huge opportunity for some early playing time, that seems to be one of the biggest things to highly recruited players

It appears that his bonding with Coach Brown is very strong. And it seems that his relationships with other coaches can't compare. Anything can change, but for the time-being, he is coming to NU.

I would love to see him tell Scout and Rivals how he's not leaning towards any school right now but he is really interested in USC, Texas, and Florida. Then he just keeps pulling them along and they keep jacking up his ranking, and then bam, he commits to Nebraska. That'd show em.

1. Nebraska has never, ever, consistently pulled in five star rated prospects.

 

I think, and I could be wrong here, but one could probably count the number of :star:star:star:star:star rated prospects who have signed with Nebraska on one hand.

 

We've had two recently: Marlon Lucky and Baker Steinkuhler, other than those two guys I can't remember the last 5 :star kid we had.

 

As a note: QB Cody Green was a 5 :star on scout.com, then he committed to Nebraska and was subsequently lowered to a 4 :star. (CG was a 4 :star on rivals.com all-along.)

 

2. Do you honestly think that in every single case a 5 :star is automatically better than a 4 :star or lower rated kid?

 

3. Do you think Bo cares about such things?

 

Don't get me wrong, "stars" do matter to a certain degree but they only tell about 1/4th of the story of how "talented" a football team is.

 

In other words, you could give the previous incompetent Nebraska coaching staff control over teams like: USC, Texas, Oklahoma, LSU, Florida, etc and even with maintaining those 4 and 5 :star rated classes over a period of three years those teams would be 6-6 at best.

 

If you want a pertinent case study on how poor or mediocre coaching can make even the best "on-paper" talent look bad, review Charlie Weiss and Notre Dame the past three ?four? years.

You forgot about Zach Bowman and Andre Jones, both five star prospects by rivals. Doesn't make much of a case bc neither one really lived up to the hype. Bowman could have I think had he not got hurt and for some reason not got benched.
