Highland Springs DB Malcolm Greene secures yet another offer this time from Georgia Tech

If someone is bold enough to book a flight and rent space on your personal island, as a defensive back it’s only right you don’t let them leave without putting hands on them.
It should sound familiar because this should be the mantra of every defensive player and offensive lineman to ever play the beautiful game of football. For Highland Springs starting defensive back Malcolm Greene, that perspective has now become an embedded way of life. It’s a way a life that has transferred to each and every Springers product that has allowed them to earn Class 5A state championships in each of the last four seasons. It’s also the call of a young man that has earned enough scholarship offers to fill up his gas tank and drive from Richmond to Washington D.C. and back again.
Nowadays, Greene (2020 DB 5-11 182) isn’t too talkative when scholarship offers have come in. These types of situations used to call for celebrations decorated by Twitter posts and statements that verbally justify his position among other defensive backs in the state.
Greene caught the attention of Geoff Collins and his coaching staff at Georgia Tech and the Yellow Jackets provided him with yet another offer on Monday morning shortly before lunch. Malcolm Greene’s response to the excitement on the day, “It feels great.”
Greene isn’t the type of person to build up excitement until the task is complete. Truth be told, the Highland Springs product still has one more season to complete in a Springers uniform. His first offer came a little more than a year ago and it was from Justin Fuente and the Virginia Tech Hokies. Since then, his success has become more of an expectation so when these scholarship offers come through there’s a feeling of business as usual seeping through the atmosphere.
Aside from Virginia and Georgia Tech, Greene has also picked up offers from: Norfolk State, Rutgers, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, Toledo, James Madison, Purdue, Duke, Morgan State, Liberty, Vanderbilt, Clemson, West Virginia, Louisville, Penn State, Florida, NC State, Michigan State, East Carolina, Texas Christian, Pittsburgh, Temple, and Louisiana State.
The four-star product contributed to the Springers defense last season by notching 49 tackles and three interceptions in route to picking up All-State, All-Region, All-Metro, and All-804 honors. Greene plans to take a trip down to LSU sometime soon and will be narrowing his list of almost 30 scholarship offers down during the summer before the start of the regular season.
