PLAYERS: Brady Hoke
Michigan Football recruiting update with Derrick Green. The nations top running back recently updated on his recruitment. His top six schools are Michigan, Auburn, Tennessee, Oregon, Miami and Ole Miss. Green has visited Michigan, Auburn and Tennessee. He plans to visit Oregon and will then have one visit left which will be to either Miami or Ole Miss. Mike Farrell interviewed Green and asked him what he liked about Michigan. “Everything, from the players, to the coaching staff, to the facilities, you know to definitely game day atmosphere,” Green explained. “I could definitely see myself playing in their program. When I went out for my official, I had a real good time.” Farrell asked Green if the firings of Gene Chizik at Auburn and Derek Dooley at Tennessee gave Michigan an edge. “I would say so, definitely cause I had good relationships with those guys that were fired.” Green is a US Army All-American and a finalist for the US Army Player of the Year Award. Here is an excerpt of his scouting report on ESPNU: One of the better power backs this class has to offer. Green is a load and a strong, physically imposing runner ready to make the college jump. He has a well-built, muscular frame with very good upper and lower body strength. He has thick legs and a strong power base. Green is quick to get downhill and attack the hole and he gains momentum fast…Even on outside tosses or stretch plays, he is quick to plant and get north finding the vertical crease. Not a lot of wasted cuts with this guy. He flashes the burst to get through tight in-line seams and into the second level quickly. Displays very good power to break tackles. He is an aggressive runner who drags tacklers and finishes runs falling forward. He will get the extra yards while wearing down a defense. A durable tough guy who likes contact.
