Salem defensive back and wide receiver Desmond Green (2021 DB/WR 5-10 190) decided to close his recruitment by giving his verbal commitment to the United States Naval Academy.
Desmond competed at the recruit757 Spotlight Exposure camp earlier this month, and he had an excellent showing. Like another recent camper, Dominic Wilson, Green decided to commit to assistant coach R.B. Green and end the process.
“I can tell it’s a great fit and a great opportunity for me that I didn’t want to pass up on,” Desmond said. “I committed on Wednesday, but I just announced it today for the video I put out.”

Green mentioned that he saw Dominic Wilson’s commitment. It’s great for the Beach to have two native sons heading to the Naval Academy next summer. The experience is top notch, the academics are excellent and the career opportunities that are available when you leave school as a naval officer are hard to beat.
Desmond mentioned that his relationship with Coach Green was one factor in him making his commitment.
“(Coach Green) was very excited. He’s been nothing but welcoming from the day he offered me,” Green stated.
Green will return to Salem for his senior season this fall, and the Sun Devils should once again be a top contender for the Region 5A title. Salem went 12-0 in 2019 before falling to eventual state champion Maury in the Region 5A championship game. That loss certainly gives them motivation coming into the 2020 season.
