50 HUSKERS TO KNOW: No. 20
What to do with this big, athletic guy who neither throws quite as well as Zac Lee nor runs quite as well as Taylor Martinez? Here’s a hint: Don’t give up on him. Although it would appear that Green isn’t right at the top of the QB heap, game performance - not work in scrimmages - will truly decide who commands NU’s offense for the Big 12 season. And it just might be Green. Yes, it may depend on Lee and/or Martinez faltering, but don’t count out that possibility. It’s happened before.
Green’s biggest challenge is settling down in the pocket, carrying out his reads, and playing the game at college speed. Physically, Green is the most gifted of NU’s quarterbacks. But his short stints during the 2009 season - and the 2010 spring game - revealed a guy who still seems a bit antsy.
If Lee and/or Martinez do steer the ship in the right direction, Green could be in line for a redshirt season. He could use what he never got to get last year.
