Trojan verbal commit running back Broderick Green opened his season last night and John Jackson was there to get a first hand look.

WeAreSC contributor John Jackson was on hand last night to watch Green and the Pulaski Academy Bruins outlast Forrest City 57-47. Here are his thoughts:

"The first thing that jumped out to me is how physically imposing he is, he's the most physically imposing guy on the field. He's not just big, he's well filled out for a high school guy. He's really strong too, especially up top, he's a top heavy guy.

"If you're going to try and tackle him, you better not try to tackle him high because you will just bounce right off him. Guys were being forced to go at him low if they were going to have any chance to bring him down.

"I would say he's built like a power runner but he doesn't run like a power back. He is more of a slasher who is pretty elusive. I was most impressed with his ability to cut back, there were many plays when he would start one way and then cut back and pick up good yardage. He has the quicks to get to the outside when needed but he's not a speed back. He's just quick enough to get to the hole and make guys slide off him. I liked the fact that he didn't just rely on trying to pound the ball.

"His team would rely on him to run the ball down the field and then they would throw into the end zone, the quarterback had eight touchdowns and over 500 yards passing so it's not like Green was the only weapon they had."

USC assistant coach Brennan Carroll was also in attendance at the game to represent the Trojan coaching staff.
