2020 Season Countdown: #46 Gemon Green

Name: Gemon Green
Height: 
6’2″
Weight: 
180 lbs.
High school: 
DeSoto (TX) DeSoto
Position: 
Cornerback
Class: 
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: 
#22
Last year: 
I ranked Green #43 and said he would be a backup cornerback. (LINK). He made 5 tackles.
TTB Rating:
 82

Green had a momentary uptick in expectations during the pre-season leading up to 2019 when it came out that Ambry Thomas was suffering from an illness. That left Thomas’s availability for the season up in the air, and maybe backup corners like Green were licking their chops at the chance to play. Luckily for Michigan, Thomas made a pretty miraculous recovery to be ready for game one and he stayed healthy throughout the year. Green was limited to special teams as Thomas, Lavert Hill, and Vincent Gray took the vast majority of snaps at corner.

This year Green is in the hot seat. With Hill having graduated, Michigan needs to find a third corner. Green is in his third year on campus and has the most experience of any of the backups, but he hasn’t separated himself from the pack. In fact, word on the street is that D.J. Turner II has been the most impressive of the backup corners. Green needs to stake his claim to playing time here in 2020 or else Gray, Turner, Darion Green-Warren, and/or others might make him irrelevant going into 2021.

Prediction: Backup cornerback

      At positions like CB and RB where freshman are more likely to contribute it can “get late” early. (e.g., Christian Turner)

      Context is also relevant – are you getting beat out by your classmates? younger players? are they just waiting for standouts to clear out?

      Things don’t look great for Green at this point, but he should get an opportunity.

    Sorry, not related to the article, but you should consider using Native Ads. There are good companies like Revcontent, Taboola and Outbrain that pay pretty well. They pay much better than Adsense, InfoLinks, and the other traditional ad companies.

      I appreciate the suggestions. I did apply to Outbrain a few years ago, but I was not accepted. I can’t remember whether I got rejected by Taboola or not, but I think I might have. I have not tried Revcontent before. But yeah, I’ve come across all those ad servers while I’ve been doing research. I may try all of them before long.

      InfoLinks says they need about 12 business days to fully integrate and get their ads up to speed with my traffic, and this is day 5. There’s been a slow uptick in revenue, but I’m hoping it continues to improve because it’s not great so far. Meanwhile, Sovrn has been about as productive as AdSense over the past couple weeks, so I’m basically about 20-25% ahead of where I was before AdSense conked out.

      Thanks!

        A lot of my clients work with them. I will notify Revcontent and Outbrain. Your site would definitely be more responsive to native ads than traditional ads. They are far better than Adsense. Adsense is good if you have a lot of views from different parts of the world.

          Well, thanks for doing that. It’s appreciated. I’ll check into Revcontent.

          FWIW, I applied to Revcontent and was not approved.

    Also, just a suggestion, you should look into setting up a Patreon. It lets people like me donate every month with automatic donations via a subscription. People can choose how much they want to contribute each month.

      I’ve thought about that, too. I haven’t really checked into it. Some people have set up recurring donations via Paypal, too.
