On3 moved him up from the No. 40 overall prospect to the No. 35 overall prospect. The third-ranked tight end is now the No. 2 tight end. Green could rise even higher up the ranks, but most importantly, he’s now the top-ranked prospect in Louisiana.
On3 director of scouting Charles Power said Tiger fans should be excited about what Green’s put together. He added weight in the offseason and is moving well with that added mass.
“Has a bounce to his step that he maybe didn’t have quite as consistently as a junior. He’s made some ridiculous catches so far,” Power said in October. “He’s a guy we’ve always been high on his upside as a big-time mismatch at tight end. He’s around 6-6, 230 pounds and has that above the rim basketball athleticism along with his bulk and ability to box out defenders in the air.”
Green’s progression is huge for the Tigers. LSU’s inked some top matchup problems at the position over the past couple seasons.
“I think it’s really encouraging from Trey’Dez,” Power said. “When you look at what LSU is doing at tight end under Brian Kelly, you can look at him in a couple years and they have the most talented tight end room in the country. Trey’Dez Green and Ka’Morreun Pimpton are two major mismatches. I think the prospect of having those two guys in the same room, let alone on the field at the same time, has to be tantalizing for LSU fans.”
According to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies, Green was the No. 35 overall prospect and No. 1 tight end in America. He’s also No. 2 in the Louisiana rankings.
