Southwestern College (CA) athlete Rashad Greene can do it all. He was named 1st team All-Mountain Conference as an all-purpose performer after playing wide receiver, defensive back, and serving as a kickoff return specialist for the Jaguars.
He had 17 catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns as a receiver and recorded 18 tackles with four interceptions as a defensive back this past season.
Back in his high school days at Warner Christian Academy (Daytona Beach, FL) the local media gave Greene the fitting nickname of "Mr. Versatility."
He has continued his versatile ways at the junior college level and is now starting to gain interest from Western Kentucky to play defensive back, a position he prefers to play at the next level.
"I talked to the defensive backs coach (Ricky) Brumfield last week, he called me and said he really liked my film and was interested."
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect is still waiting to hear back from WKU, but that doesn't mean his phone isn't ringing, "Nevada's coach called me today (Jan. 15th) and wanted to set up visit, so I'll see where that goes."
I asked Greene what he is looking for in a program during his recruiting process, "I just really want to go wherever I'm going to get some playing time and it's going to be a winning program."
Aside from Western Kentucky and Nevada, Greene is also picking up some interest from Wisconsin.
