Hermitage HS, Virginia RB Derrick Green is a prospect that was blessed with out of this world talents on the football field and regardless of position he could easily be the best overall prospect in the 2013 football recruiting class. Derrick stands 6'0 215lbs and has been clocked at 4.31 in the forty yard dash. He is a well put together prospect who exudes potential and has all the skills needed to be a dominate ball carrier at the college football level.
Green has the overall skill set to handle anything thrown his way and he looks good while doing it. Derrick has the speed and strength to break tackles and keep his legs churning all the way into the end zone while also having excellent hands out of the backfield. He has the capabilities to make a game changing play anytime the football is in his hands and he relishes the moments when his team calls his name to make something happen.
"I am a big moment and big play guy. I like having the spotlight on me and I don't mind having the pressure put on my shoulders. My attitude towards each game is that hard work and the willingness to sacrifice for you team is the way to go towards winning the game. I am a complete teammate who is willing to doing whatever it takes to see my team succeed. I also consider myself a complete back that can do multiple things on the field. My hands, speed, elusiveness and strength are the main key traits about my game that stand out the most, said Green."
Derrick Green is a home run hitting running back who is being sought after by just about every single college football program in the country. He is thought of by many as to be the best running back prospect for the 2013 recruiting class and his early offer list indicates that. Derrick is not short of options when it comes to choosing his future college, but he is a long ways away from coming up with a final decision.
"My college recruitment has gone way faster than I ever thought it would. I never expected to be sitting at this time with so many official offers but I am totally blessed and happy that so many coaches believe in my abilities. I am just sitting back and enjoying the whole experience and seeing what all comes my way, said Green."
Derrick currently holds offers from the likes of Virginia, Virginia Tech, USC, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Michigan and Auburn as well as others with even more schools coming in with eventual offers. He is seeing college coaches stay in contact with him on a pretty consistent basis and trying to inform him on every detail they can about their respected programs. Green is staying patient with everything and not trying to make any rash decisions while he takes his time throughout his college recruitment.
"My plan is to make my commitment on National Signing Day, so I am just going to sit back and enjoy my time and have a clear head all the way throughout my recruitment. I don't have any favorites or leaders at this time but I did grow up watching and liking Ohio State. My favorite player to watch on TV was Eddie George and I like to think I model my game after him, but faster. I am just going to gain as much info as I can on each school recruiting as well as take all my official visits before I am ready to put an end to my recruitment, said the Hermitage High School star."
Football is something that Derrick Green holds near and dear to his heart and he strives to be the best football he can be and try to eventually reach the highest level possible. He puts in the work on a day to day basis on and the place you will most likely find him is inside the weight room. Derrick is a work out warrior that enjoys conditioning his body to its maximum potential and keeping it in the best shape it can be. His goal is to become the best player in college football and his work ethic provides the groundwork for a long career inside the game he loves.
"I really enjoy pushing myself to the ultimate and putting my body through the rigors so I can be fully prepared for lies ahead of me in college. I am inside the weight room seven days a week working on some part of my body and keeping myself in tip top shape. I would love to come in and play immediately but I am willing to wait my turn if need be. I just want to make sure I am ready to go if my number is called so I will continue to work hard and stay patient for my time. I mainly want to be around people that will provide me the structure to succeed both on the field as well as off of it. I want to be the best player in football and I will find that place that helps me reach my goal, said Green."

Tony Bonadies-Palisades Park Leonia Lineman Could be Close to Breaking Out
Tony Bonadies from Leonia, New Jersey is an interior offensive lineman who is beginning to feel the pressure of college recruiting come his way and he could be very close to receiving his first BCS level offer. Bonadies plays the center position along the offensive line and he brings a savvyness and physical demeanor each time he steps out on the field. Tony is looking to play on the highest level possible in college football and he has been preparing for a long offseason of recruiting after his junior season concluded.
"I have been waiting for this moment for a long time and I am excited about where my recruitment could lead me. My goal has always been to play football at the highest level and play alongside some of the best football players in the country. I am a hard worker who strives to be the best and I believe my work ethic will take me a long way in life, said Bonadies."
Tony has yet to see that first marque offer come through, but that could change in the very near future. He has been receiving steady interest from the likes of Boston College, Rutgers, UConn, Pittsburgh and Duke while more schools are calling and catching an interest in Bonadies. He is looking to take his time and find the best place that fits his needs and wants before he is ultimately ready to make a final decision.
"Right now I am just sitting back and enjoying the whole process. It is nice to feel pursued and to be liked by several different college coaches. I am still waiting for the big offer to come through and I think after making a couple of visits here soon I will finally see that offer happen. Boston College, Rutgers and Temple have been recruiting me the hardest and I think that next offer could come from either one of those three. I am real interested in BC and I have it in the plans to visit there really soon. I am also planning to see Rutgers soon as well and I am hoping after those visits that offers will come with them, said the Palisades Park High School lineman."
Tony Bonadies is a versatile lineman who could play multiple positions along the offensive line. He has played all positions in the past and that versatility could come in favor when it comes to being recruited. Tony looks to translate into the center position in college football and he has the smarts and athleticism to eventually turn into a college starting lineman. He has several strengths that work well in the college game and he believes he has everything it takes to succeed at the next step in his football career.
"I consider myself an athletic and physical lineman who can get to the second level and keep my opponent away from my quarterback. I have quick feet along with the agility to move well along the offensive line. I do a good job of getting myself in position to make the block and keep him at bay long enough for my offense to make a play. I think I need to continue to work on my overall strength as well as placing my hands better on my opponent. I will continue to get better and my work ethic is unmatched. I believe I am a Division 1 football player and will continue to push myself until I reach that plateau, said Bonadies."
