WHAT NORTH CAROLINA IS GETTING
Green is a huge offensive lineman that excels at clearing the way for running backs. He does a good job putting defensive linemen on their heels and opening up running lanes. Green has the size and length to play offensive tackle but his skill set might be better suited for a move to guard. He has a great initial punch and can redirect pass rushers or stop them in their tracks. There is still a lot of work Green will need to do on his body and physical makeup before he is ready for the field, but he brings plenty of talent to the roster.
WHY IT'S BIG FOR THE TAR HEELS
Mack Brown is building the Tar Heels to compete with the nation’s top programs and he needs to make sure the offensive line is as stout as possible. Getting a massive prospect like Green should help in a variety of ways, especially if he continues to develop at the same rate.
The Tar Heels are doing a tremendous job recruiting the state of Virginia and it’s a good time to do so. The 2022 class in Virginia is very talented and there are plenty of targets that are interested in North Carolina. Green is the third 2022 player to commit to North Carolina and all three are from Virginia.
