I can't help but get gitty every time I see a TomVH post!
TomVH: DE Desimon Green Update
Desimon Green, out of Clairton High School in Pennsylvania, recently got some exciting news from the Michigan coaching staff. Coach Gibson and Coach Robinson told Green that he would have an offer once Rich Rodriguez gives the thumbs up after the holiday weekend. Desimon is calling the Michigan coaches back tomorrow, and is expecting the offer to be extended.
Green is a 6-foot-5, 215-pound athlete, that plays defensive end, quarterback, wide receiver, and even linebacker. "Whatever the team needs me at, that's what I play. You don't usually see a teams quarterback turn around and line up at the defensive end spot, but I can do it all," said Desimon. The Wolverines are recruiting Green for either the defensive end spot, or the hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker position. "That's kind of what I play now, for our team, so that fits me pretty well," Green said.
Desimon told me he was a fan of Michigan growing up, but being a fan and a recruit are two different things. "They're not my favorite just because I was a fan. Those are two different things. They have a good chance, but they're not my leader," said Desimon. Michigan isn't the leader, but they are among his top five. "Texas Tech, Michigan State, West Virginia, Cincinnati, and Michigan are the top schools so far," he told me.
For what it's worth, Michigan State is recruiting him for tight end, which is ok with him. Desimon is hoping to have a decision made by September, and November at the latest. He's looking for a certain comfort level, and the opportunity to play early. He doesn't plan on camping at Michigan, because he doesn't want to camp anywhere he already has an offer with.
I feel giddy.
Big tall and athletic, sounds good to me!
Did someone forget to give Tom the memo that the blog was canceled today?
just put up a bit of free fluff on him:
I'm not really sure how to pronounce his first name, but the way I say it in my head sounds like a Pokemon character.
You don't pronounce the 'i', so it's just said Desmon. Like Desmond Howard, without the "d" on the end of Desmond.
always nice to see the coaching staff after versatile players. kid looks good imo
Sounds like a Big Tex 2.0. With even more capabilities.
I don't know man, Big Tex was doing all of that at about 275.
True. But if he starts Barwiscizing and gets his weight up he could be something like a Big Tex but more versatile.
Sounds like the kid has potential through the roof being 6"5 and only 215 pounds. Could only imagine what he could do after working out with Barwis.
