Brandon Green, a 2009 Tampa Catholic grad who spent a season at prep school, has committed to the Florida A&M football program.

“I just felt comfortable with FAMU -- the coaching staff and everything,” Green said. “I believe I can go there and mature as a player and mature as a young man.”

FAMU is recruiting the 6-foot-3, 245-pounder to play LB and DE.

Green was a three-year starter for the Crusaders and helped the team earn a spot in the state finals as a junior.

Last fall, he played at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, which is considered to be one of the country’s elite prep schools for football.

“I believe that helped me a whole lot,” Green said. “Hargrave helped me mature.”

During the recruiting process, Green also had interest from USF and FSU.

Brandon is the older brother of TC QB Christian Green, who will make an official visit to FSU next weekend.
