Derrick Green is weighing his options, all of his options. This summer, the ESPN 150 running has already visited nine different schools, and he made a trip down south over the weekend to check out three more.
The trip began with a stop in Tuscaloosa to visit the University of Alabama. It was the first time the Richmond, Va., resident had ever been on the Crimson Tide’s campus.
“It was really nice,” Green said. “I got there, spoke to my position coach, spoke to Coach [Nick] Saban, toured the campus. I had a good time seeing the facilities. I got to speak with the strength and conditioning coach. I really like him a lot. It was overall a good trip.”
After winning position MVP honors at the Nike Football Training Camp in Illinois, running back Ezekiel Elliott (St. Louis/John Burroughs) turned his attention to the beginning of July and more importantly to Beaverton, Ore., where Nike's The Opening camp was taking place. There, to prove his No. 257 ranking in the ESPN 300 was a bit low, Elliott turned it up a notch and blew the doors off more than one opponent while satisfying the viewing audience on ESPNU with his speed. Elliott moved up to No. 172. Now, the 2013 Ohio State pledge is making sure nobody forgets his name.
So when the 6-foot, 197-pound Elliott wowed the crowd earlier this month, it came with a smile and even more determination as he prepares for the Gridiron Kings from July 27-29 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
"It's always great to compete against the best in the nation," Elliott said. "These camps like the Gridiron Kings and The Opening, only the best of the best get invited there.
"The other reason I go is to improve my ratings at the recruiting sites. It's more of a pride thing. You want to be recognized for what you do and all the work you put in. I don't want anyone to say I didn't go to enough camps or that I didn't really compete against anybody. If I go to the camps and prove I can compete, it says something."
