In his first season with the Cornhuskers, Green played in 12 games and ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns in 2011. However, he chose to transfer after the season and was held out of the 2012 campaign due to transfer rules. He ran for 232 yards in the 2013 season, his first with the Horned Frogs, before making his presence felt the following year where he led the way with 922 rushing yards and nine touchdowns; his numbers placed on the All-Big 12 second team. He played in all 13 games (10 starts) this past season as his 1,272 yards were seventh most in school history to go along with 11 touchdowns.
At 5’10,” 203 pounds with a 4.57 40, it’s easier to understand why he wasn’t drafted. He has limited power and functional strength and his feet slow through the hole as contact approaches. However, he does do some good things and has near home run potential who needs to put it together. Green possesses the short are burst to escape trouble and the elusiveness and one-cut ability to make defenders miss in the open field; his quick feet and burst allow him to beat defenders to the edge.
