2019 6’2 185 Donavon Greene (Wake Forest Commit), is one of the most electrifying athletes in the state, not many pass catchers have his big play ability.
Last season Greene reeled in 46 passes, for 1138 yards, and,16 touchdowns, for Mt Airy high school which led to an explosion in his recruitment. Greene chose the Deacs over programs like, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and, Tennessee. There is no denying the Demon Deacons are getting an impact player.
Greene is rated as a four star recruit in the class of 2019 according to 247sports national rankings, and he’s rated the ninth overall prospect in NC . I caught up with him after an impressive performance against Richmond County, the Jamboree was held at BB&T Stadium where Wake plays their home games.
We spoke about expectations for the granite Bears, early playing time at the next level, and a little J Cole!
At 6’2 Greene is a physical wideout, he attacks the ball at its highest point, and Greene has the speed take it the distance. Greene is a hard runner in the open field he’s difficult to bring down.
Tye Dye nation will be thrilled to keep Greene right at home!
