BYU officially adds the commitment of cornerback Trevion Greene. He is a late add to the 2017 class.
BYU football officially earned a commitment from Chabot College defensive back Trevion Greene. Greene verbally committed during the Cougars spring game but he made it official by signing his National Letter of Intent. He will be part of BYU’s 2017 class and will have three years of eligibility to play for the Cougars.

Greene knew very little about BYU but he did have an in with his former high school teammate Squally Canada who gave him some insight on the Cougar program.
“Squally would actually be the one who told me about (BYU),” Greene said last week in an interview on ESPN 960. “He told me it would be a culture shock coming from Southern California to a town like Provo — that it’s a Mormon town and they’re pretty strict on policy — but he let me know that it’s not that bad.”
Greene decided to jump at the offer to commit when it was presented to him during the weekend of the spring game, and he even canceled a scheduled trip he had with Iowa State.
“BYU basically won me over,” Greene said. “I love the atmosphere of the family there — that was probably the main thing. The family, the education was cool, and the chance to go to the next level.”
Greene played one year in junior college which he spent making the move from wide receiver to cornerback. He also could become the fastest player on BYU’s team next year as he clocked a 10.90 in the 100 meters at a track meet in Stanford this past week. Greene said he likely will join the track team but not until his second year in the program so that he can learn as much as possible on the football field this upcoming season.
One area that Greene said he needs to work on is being more physical as a cornerback, but he added that his speed will help him early on to make up for any deficiencies he has while he continues to learn a new position.
Here are his highlights from his one year at junior college.
Greene has work to do to be a better defensive back and he will learn behind a solid group this upcoming year at BYU.
