Green is a 6-foot, 190-pound safety out of Covington, Georgia who has received a dozen offers on the recruiting front. In addition to Minnesota, he received interest from Indiana, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Wake Forest and a handful of other programs.
Per 247Sports, Green ranks as one of the top 50 safeties and top 50 players out of the state of Georgia. He does not currently have a national overall ranking in the composite.
With Green’s commitment, Minnesota’s 2021 class ranks ninth nationally and third in the B1G.
