Boston College lands quick commitment from CB TJ Green


Reynoldsburg (Ohio) athlete/defensive back TJ Green committed to Boston College on Monday following a weekend visit that produced an offer from the Eagles.

“Family is the most important thing I looked at when being recruited by every school,” Green said. “When I was at B.C., it was like I was at home. It felt right.”

Green had 13 offers including Toledo, Miami (Ohio), UMass, Eastern Michigan, Wyoming, UAB and others. He also had rising interest from Iowa State, Indiana and Northwestern.

 A 5-foot-11, 180-pound junior, Green has played all over the field, finishing with 1,019 yards and four touchdowns as a wide receiver on offense. He is being recruited as a cornerback though and had 71 tackles, three forced fumbles with two recoveries and five pass breakups in the fall.

He has track speed, having recently run 10.71 in the 100-meter dash along with instincts and physicality that is evidenced by his tackle statistics.

Head coach Bill O’Brien, defensive coordinator Tim Lewis, and defensive backs coach Ray Brown all had a hand in recruiting Green.

“The coaches showed love as soon as I walked into the door,” he said. “I got to meet with the head coach, defensive coordinator, defensive backs coach, and my recruiting area coach, and every single one of them had a different thing to say on why they loved me, and how I could help the program. Not only that they showed me. I talked to the defensive coordinator for over an hour and was the last recruit to leave the building.”

Also a 3.5 student in the classroom, academics were an important piece for Green as well.

247Sports has rated Green a higher-end three-star at an 87. He is ranked the No. 32 junior in Ohio and No. 75 athlete nationally.

Green becomes the fourth commitment in the 2025 class for Boston College. He is their first from the state of Ohio.
