The Florida Gators are among four teams recruiting Green the hardest

With the early signing period having so many guys signed already, coaching staffs around the country are already putting a lot of focus on the 2019 class and that includes the Florida Gators.

One of the guys the Gators coaching staff is already recruiting really hard is 2019 offensive line Kenyon Green (6-5, 315, Humble, TX. Atascocita) who says four schools are after him hard right now.

“Florida, Texas, Texas A&M, OU,” Green said on the schools recruiting him the hardest.

Green admits that he likes several things about those programs including the coaching staffs they have.

“I just like those programs,” he said on what he likes about those schools. “I like the offensive line coaches there. They’re great coaches. I’m just trying to weigh my options and still look. Nothing is settled right now.”

With the Gators coaching staff hard after Green, the offensive lineman admits that he’s interested in getting to know Florida even more.

“They’re on me hard,” Green said of Florida. “Right now, I’m just trying to come and visit to get a good feel for them.”

Green is already pretty familiar with the coaching staff at Florida because he has visited them before at Mississippi State.

“I went and visited when they were at Mississippi State,” he said of relationship with the coaching staff. “I got a good feel for them then. It was a great experience talking to them.”

Offensive line coach John Hevesy is the main coach recruiting Green and he has had a message for the 2019 offensive lineman.

“That we need you here, you can be a big help to us,” Green said of the message Hevesy has sent him. “He just wants to get me on campus for a visit.”

INSIDERS TAKE: Oklahoma and Texas A&M seem to be the favorite with Florida and LSU right behind them. Green decomitted from LSU late in 2017 but they still remain in contention for him according to what Green says.
