This week has been a busy one on the recruiting trail. Over the last few days, BYU's coaching staff has traveled across the country to visit both 2022 and 2023 prospects. On Thursday night, BYU cornerbacks coach Jernaro Gilford traveled to Oklahoma to visit 2022 defensive back prospect Korbyn Green. After the visit, Gilford extended Green a scholarship offer.
Green preps at Owasso High School in Owasso, Oklahoma.
Green, who is listed at 6'1 170 pounds, tells Cougs Daily that he will take an official visit to BYU from January 27-30. That is the last weekend of visits before national signing day on February 2nd.
"The conversation was everything it needed to be and more," Green said on his home visit with Coach Gilford. "He was very informative on the school and explained everything to me and my Momma."
Green has been in touch with BYU regularly over the last two weeks. As a kid from the Midwest, the BYU offer was particularly meaningful to him. "BYU has always been really good and they’re moving to the Big12 which is very big in the Midwest." Prior to visiting with Coach Gilford, Green said he "didn't know a lot" about BYU. Mostly that "it was a religious school and a really good [football] program."
Green fits the mold that BYU has recruited at cornerback under Kalani Sitake: he is long, he runs track, and he has high upside that the Cougars believe they can develop in Provo.
Green has received offers from a few smaller programs like Central Missouri and Washburn, but BYU is the first FBS school to offer him a scholarship. He tells Cougs Daily that he's also recently been in touch with Baylor, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
