Mississippi State Football Recruiting: Bulldogs Land Gerri Green

On Wednesday, 2014 linebacker Gerri Green decided to give the Mississippi State Bulldogs his verbal commitment. Green is among the Top 10 for Mississippi recruits and is ranked 352nd on the 247Sports 2014 Composite Football Rankings.

The other teams that offered at the Greenville, MS native, but did not get his commitment were the Arkansas Razorbacks, Auburn Tigers, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, Ole Miss Rebels, Tennessee Volunteers, and Vanderbilt Commodores.

Gerri Green’s commitment shouldn’t come as a surprise to most people. This is because all fourteen of the recruiting experts on the 247Sports Crystal Ball predicted the Bulldogs as the team to land the in-state recruit.

Green is a great pickup for the “Maroon and White” mainly because of the versatility in which he brings to the linebacker position.

At 6’5″, 215 pounds, he displays tremendous size and is also athletic and contains great instincts and ball skills.

The only thing Gerri Green will need to work on at the next level is his ability to change directions on the football field.

Green’s commitment is No. 15 overall for the Bulldogs and moves their class to 32nd overall in the 247 Sports class rankings.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 10th in the state of Mississippi and 40th among athletes by 247Sports.
