Sooners extend offer to 2023 DL Stephiylon Green

Oklahoma’s been working hard to add defensive line talent since Brent Venables took over as the Sooners’ head coach. Bringing along former Clemson assistants Todd Bates and Miguel Chavis, an emphasis has been placed on bolstering the Oklahoma Sooners’ defensive front. It worked at Clemson, helping the Tigers win two national titles and it’s the foundation of Brent Venables’ defense.

Venables wants to win up front and he’s got a proven track record of developing defensive linemen into NFL talents. He also realizes that in the SEC, a team can’t afford to be weak along the defensive line. And that’s why they’ve made it a priority. They recently landed inside the top five for four-star defensive line product Kelby Collins and on Wednesday extended an offer to another four-star defensive line prospect; Stephiylon Green out of Rome, Georgia.

Green is considered a top 200 prospect according to Rivals and On3 Recruiting and lands inside the top 300 in both the 247Sports Composite rankings and the On3 Consensus rankings.

Stephiylon Green is being recruited heavily by defending national champion Georgia and has made three unofficial visits to Athens. The Bulldogs look to be the leader at the moment according to On3’s Recruiting Prediction Machine but don’t count out Venables and Bates as they make their pitch to the talented defensive line prospect.

Green displays impressive quickness and a nice first step off the snap. From a three-technique defensive tackle spot, is very adept at rushing the passer. He shows a nice swim move and a powerful bull rush. Green is relentless in pursuit, displaying great effort to chase down quarterbacks and running backs when they run wide. He’s quick and incredibly well for a defensive lineman making it incredibly difficult to block him. Even when opposing offensive linemen did get in front of him, his strength pushed them back into the pocket. Also lined up as a nose tackle or zero-technique at times and was effective at collapsing the pocket and getting into the backfield.

Stephiylon Green is a disruptive player that will make a fantastic college player. Even as a high school junior, he displayed tools that could have him playing on Sundays in the NFL.
