Anyone here surprised?
Story over on Scout.
After leading his team to a last-minute win over LSU in Little Rock, the day got even better for University of Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino.
That’s when he got a call from former Pulaski Academy star and transferring USC redshirt freshmen tailback Broderick Green letting him know he will be a Razorback.
Green (6-2, 235) actually watched the first three quarters of Arkansas’ 31-30 win over LSU before heading to Greenwood to watch the Bruins win a berth in the state championship game.
“I had a great time at the game, called my family and talked it over and just think Arkansas is the best place for me, especially with my situation,” Green said. “I called the coaches and told them I was coming and they were excited.”
I have mixed feelings here.
I understand his family concerns, heartstrings being pulled can be a very powerful thing but I also know that if Green saw the field more that this may not have happened. I have my own opinions but at this point it is immaterial. He will have to sit out a year and while I expect Green to try and get a waiver from the NCAA I don't expect that he will get it because he supposedly talked to other schools...that doesn't exactly point to trying get home for a family emergency...just like Alex Stepheson.
Regardless, we wish him luck.
