Justin Green Gives the Buckeye Coaches a Call

Justin Green was on campus June 20th for Ohio State’s senior advance camp and had a good opportunity to discuss with the coaches his offer and how they will use him as a Buckeye.

The Program and History

    Ohio State has everything Justin Green was looking for in a college program so he committed to the Buckeyes shortly after his camp visit in June. “The program and the history itself drew me to the commitment.” He told us late last week about his commitment to OSU. “Also experiencing my brother (DT Marcus Green) play for the Buckeyes was huge for me. I loved the games and the atmosphere and fell in love with the university at a young age.”

    He made three calls shortly after his June visit to Columbus from Louisville Kentury where he is a star cornerback and running back for Male High School. “I called Coach Tavor Johnson, Coach Heacock and Coach Tressel. I told all of them that I enjoyed the camp and wanted to be a Buckeye and committed over the phone.” He reported.

Coming in as a Cornerback

    Although he had a great junior year at running back, Ohio State has a number of very good backs already in the 2009 class and has recruited Green as a cornerback. “I want to play defensive back and get involved in the offense if possible. But where ever I’m needed on the field I will play.” He explained about his position assignment when he joins the Buckeyes. Green is ranked the 67th best prospect overall in the country by Rivals.com and the 6th best cornerback nationally.

    The 2009 class is being recruited by a number of prospects already in the class and Green discussed his commitment with all three in Whiting, Bellamy, and Wood. “Yes I have been in contact with Jordan Whiting, Adam Bellamy, and Jamie Wood so far.” Green told us about his contact with other members of his class.

Six Outstanding Defensive Backs

    “Around June more than likely, I will enroll.” Green told us about waiting to enroll until June of 2009. When he enrolls, he’ll be joined by a number of great defensive backs in CJ Barnett, Dominic Clarke, Bradley McDougald, Jamie Wood and Corey Brown. These six defensive backs make up one of the best backfields recruited by Coach Tressel since becoming head coach of the Buckeyes in 2001.
