Green is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound prospect out of Peoria, Illinois, and is rated as the No. 38 defensive tackle and the No. 8 recruit from the state of Illinois in the 2017 class.
Scout recently made Green a 4-star recruit, and he held 20-plus offers including four from the Big Ten (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Rutgers). The battle appeared to come down to Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota, all schools he took official visits to.
