Green appeared in all 12 of the Bulldogs games during the regular season recording 44 tackles, 2.5 for loss and an interception. The 6-foot-4, 243-pounder from Greenville redshirted his initial season in Starkville and ranked fifth in the SEC in tackles among freshmen this fall.

MSU coach Dan Mullen has placed a player on the All-SEC Freshman team in each of his seven seasons and a dozen overall. Nine of those players have gone on to sign an NFL contract.

Green is the third linebacker to earn a spot on the All-Freshman team under Mullen joining Benardrick McKinney (2012) and J.T. Gray (2014).

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
