Green came to Lincoln as the crown jewel of the 2011 recruiting class. In his freshman season, he carried the ball 25 times, for 130 yards, and 3 touchdowns. He saw limited playing time behind junior running back Rex Burkhead, and split second string carries with fellow freshman Ameer Abdullah
Green is looking to transfer to a school closer to home. Reports indicate the lack of playing time was not the issue. Green is looking to transfer to either his fathers alma mater Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas Tech, or Houston .
Green is the younger brother of Husker cornerback Andrew Green. He will leave campus after he takes his spring final exams. After Green chooses which school he would like to attend, he will be forced to sit out one year with a redshirt, due to NCAA transfer rules.
In the spring Braylon Heard, switched from I-back to cornerback to see more playing time. It will be interesting to see if Heard makes the move back to the offensive side of the ball after Green transfers.
Nebraska landed the commitment of Gainsville, GA. running back Imani Cross in the 2012 recruiting class. Cross is 6-foot-2, 220 lbs., and could be a major contributor early with the loss of Green. ‘
