2018 Season Countdown: #84 Gemon Green

Name: Gemon Green
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 175 lbs.
High school: DeSoto (TX) DeSoto
Position: Cornerback
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Green was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 24 tackles, 3 interceptions (1 TD), 1 fumble recovery, and 9 pass breakups.

Gemon is the twin brother of German Green, whom I profiled the other day (LINK). Gemon is the higher rated of the brothers, both by me and the recruiting sites: he’s a 3-star, the #35 cornerback, and #382 overall, which is six spots away from being a 4-star prospect in the 247 Composite rankings. On top of the rankings, he was also invited to USA Football’s International Bowl, where he made a diving interception (LINK).

I like Gemon’s senior film and think he will be successful at the next level, but Michigan isn’t really in need of defensive back help this season. The top four cornerbacks return (Lavert Hill, David Long, Ambry Thomas, Brandon Watson), and the top safeties do, too. Safety is the position that needs more of an upgrade, but the chances of a freshman cornerback taking over a significant role at safety are slim. He seems like a player who will probably play in the maximum of four games but end up redshirting to preserve his eligibility.

Prediction: Redshirt

Turner had a standout performance with a 56-yard TD run and a 2-yard TD run, Haskins had a 1-yard TD, and German Green notched a diving interception off of a tipped ball. It was a blowout in favor of the Americans, as they won 47-7 against America’s Hat.
