For Cedartown, Demetrius Green will be inking with Division II school Lenoir-Rhyne University while Brandon Brown may sign with a college, according to Bulldog Head Coach Mark Loudermilk.
Green, who was named to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top 150 players in Georgia list prior to his senior season, will sign with the Hickory, N.C. school to play outside linebacker.
“I think Lenoir-Rhyne is a good fit for Demetrius,” Loudermilk said.
Green will be playing for a team that participates in the South Atlantic Conference and has led that conference in attendance for football for seven straight years.
Lenoir-Rhyne plays schools like Carson-Newman, Tusculum College, Brevard College, Wingate University and Catawba College.
The small, private, liberal-arts college that is affiliated with the Evangelical Luthern Church in America has the largest on-campus football stadium in the South Atlantic Conference and currently has 12 players from the state of Georgia on their team.
No official time for Green's signing has been announced, though Loudermilk said it will take place sometime Wednesday morning.
Brown meanwhile could sign with Navy, Shorter College or Lenoir-Rhyne.
“He visited Navy recently and the offer is still on the table,” Loudermilk said. “That would be a great opportunity for him.”
In 2009 the Midshipmen will play Ohio State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest and Army. However, Loudermilk said if Brown chooses Navy he will more than likely go to a prep school the first year before enrolling at Navy.
“Shorter has offered him a scholarship to play basketball and football,” Loudermilk said. “And Lenoir-Rhyne is interested in him, too.”
Brown, also a member of the AJC’s Top 150 players in Georgia list, took several trips to Georgia Tech this past fall and was recruited by Georgia Southern. However, it now appears Brown’s final choices are between Navy, Shorter and Lenoir-Rhyne.
“He just has to make up his mind which one he wants to go too,” Loudermilk said.
Loudermilk also pointed out that players Darius Green and Jamar Whatley could end up signing to play football this spring.
