Georgia football beat out some heavy hitters for Nyland Green
Green was not an easy win for the Bulldogs on the recruiting trail, as his recruitment took many twists and turns. For a time, Clemson was the leader. Then it was Auburn. After that Tennessee seemed poised to land the cornerback.
But the Bulldogs were always consistent in their recruitment of Green. And as the other schools began to fade, Kirby Smart and defensive backs coach Charlton Warren stayed consistent. And that won out in the end for Green.
Green is the No. 9 ranked player in the state for the 2021 recruiting cycle. With him in the class, Georgia has commitments from seven of the top-11 players in the state for the 2021 recruiting cycle.
Nyland Green wants to open up a homeless shelter when he’s done with football
When he hangs up the cleats, Green already knows what he wants to do and how he wants to give back to his community.
“I know outside of football I would like to open a homeless shelter,” Green told DawgNation. “To take care of kids that are younger than me or less fortunate than me. Maybe somebody that doesn’t have what others have. I’d love to do that. I feel like we should be here to help one another out.”
Green added that he enjoys giving back to his community, perhaps even more so than intercepting passes.
“I’m always smiling but when I do that then God puts that on my heart to help somebody and that puts an even bigger smile on my face,” Green said.
“Just helping anybody. People younger than me. Our youth. Really just helping anybody in general.”
Nyland Green played all over the field for Newton High School
Green didn’t just star as a defensive back in his time at Newton High School, the same one that produced former Georgia Bulldog JJ Holloman. He also played wide receiver, where he helped hone his ball skills. That will help him at the next level for Georgia.
But he also served as the long-snapper for his high school team. The big-time cornerback prospect brings a lot of skills and talents to this Georgia class.
