Football Recruiting: Is Oregon on Green's Road Trip List?

Derrick Green is planning an extensive road trip in the coming weeks, traveling all over the country to visit a variety of major schools. Multiple Big Ten and SEC schools are on the list, but did Oregon make the cut?

According to Steve Wiltfong from 247Sports, the running back is planning to hit Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Michigan, Ohio State, and Pittsburgh.

Green participated in The Opening at Beaverton, Oregon, and responded greatly to the atmosphere there. Right now he plans to come back and visit the Ducks.

The 6-foot, 218-pound recruit from Richmond, Virginia, visited Georgia today and has received an offer from the school, his 34th offer already in the class of 2013. He’s being sought out by many football programs due to achieving quick speed with a bigger body. USC, UCLA, and Washington are currently the only offers from the Pac-12.

Currently Clemson is the highest target, but expect to see additional favorites as Green continues his trip. He is four-star recruit across the board on national recruiting services.

Other Recruiting Notes with Oregon Offers:

  • Four-star running back Alvin Kamara has listed Georgia as a favorite.
  • Four-star tight end Josh McNeil delays his decision that was planned during The Opening. Alabama and Georgia are currently his top two teams.
