Westmoore receiver commits to Louisville

MOORE — As the defensive coordinator at Broken Arrow last season, Adam Gaylor had to game plan for many of the best players in the state. That includes wide receiver Dahu Green, who had been destroying class 6A in his junior season at Westmoore.

Now, as the Jaguars head coach, he no longer has to figure out how to stop Green, but he does have sympathy for those who will have that assignment when Green takes his talents to the next level in two years.

“I’ve coached at junior college, I’ve coached D-II football,” Gaylor said. “He’s the best wide receiver I’ve been around. The best all around. I’m glad I don’t have to coach against him. Glad I don’t have to know where Dahu is on the field.”

Even though Green still has one more year of high school football, the 6-4, 200-pound wide out verbally committed to Louisville Thursday.

“I feel like Louisville is the place for me,” Green said. “I feel real comfortable around Louisville. The campus is beautiful. I got to talk to some of their players, see how they felt about the place. Nice facilities.”

Green is the second Westmoore wide out to commit this summer. Junior-to-be DeShawn lookout committed to Oklahoma for baseball and football two weeks ago.

Green, who runs a 4.5 and has a 34 inch vertical, had offers from Kentucky, Indiana, Southern Miss, Washington State, Virginia, Wake Forest and several other FBS programs. He’s also the sixth Oklahoman to verbally commit, and the third to commit to an out of state school.

Neither Oklahoma or Oklahoma State showed much interest in Green. Only Tulsa tried to keep him in state.

Regardless, it was Louisville who have been on Green’s recruiting trail from the start. And it showed when he informed the coaches he had made his decision.
