One of the nation’s premier tackles is down to five potential destinations.
Kenyon Green, a 5-star offensive lineman from Humble, Texas, trimmed his offer sheet to LSU, Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma and Alabama. The decision followed a spring of unofficial visits to each of those campuses in addition to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Each of these five schools are expected to host Green for official visits before he finalizes a decision.
The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Green is a one-time LSU commit. He committed to the Tigers as soon as he was offered following his sophomore season. Green reopened the process shortly after former LSU offensive line coach Jeff Grimes accepted a new position at BYU. Since then, new line coach James Cregg has been working tirelessly to court the 2019 Under Armour All-American.
Green celebrated his 17th birthday in Baton Rouge this spring, taking in one of the team’s first spring practices and getting a closer look at the university’s engineering program. In the aftermath of that visit, his father told SEC Country that Green was “still very much in love” with LSU.
Texas A&M and Texas are considered the favorites for the nation’s fourth-ranked tackle with LSU heavily in contention. The Atascocita High School standout could make a decision as early as this summer, but there is no concrete timeline.
