Shawn Green....

Come on down! You're the next contestant on "Meet the 2010 Tech Signees". A stout 6'2" & 290 pounds, Green was a dominating defensive tackle for a highly regarded Grayson team that won a state championship in 2008 & advanced deep into the playoffs in 2009. Green will play nose tackle in our new 3-4 scheme. Tech's coaching staff thought Green to be the best defensive tackle in the state this past year & opposing coaches seemed to agree, consistently singling him out as the dominate force on a very good defense.

Highlights (check out #94 at the :37 mark & tell me he doesn't look college football ready! Also, watch him pancake the guard trying to block him at the 2:10 mark & he displays his quickness at 2:42. Mind you, this is a GAME highlight tape, not an individual one for Green)

Hash's Take: Dad always said he couldn't pick a favorite son & we know we shouldn't pick a favorite recruit, particularly as they have yet to play a down, but we just love Green. A prototype nose tackle for the 3-4 defense; low center of gravity, thick hips & big butt. Plays with great leverage. Cat-quick & very disruptive. Refuses to be moved off the point-of attack. Demands a double-team. Has the makings of an outstanding college player. Potentially the best player in this class for Tech.

Player he reminds us of: as soon as I saw him play I immediately thought of former Miami star & current Patriot Vince Wilfork.
