TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in Saturday's 49-29 loss to Oklahoma State.

Green's now failed to rush for 100 yards in three consecutive games after hitting that mark three times in his first six games. Overall, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound redshirt senior's sliced his way to 796 yards with nine touchdowns scored. He's a relatively safe option in daily leagues, but potential owners should keep in mind that Green's slumped off a bit as of late.

TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green turned 28 carries into 162 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's wild 55-52 win over Texas Tech.

Everybody on TCU's offense was putting up numbers in this game, but Green might be the unsung hero for the Horned Frogs. He sliced and diced the Red Raiders repeatedly and kept several drives alive using his immaculate sense of balance and space to find holes that other runners might not have seen. While his long carry went for a relatively quiet 33 yards, the game was yet another example of why the 5-foot-11, 190-pound redshirt senior is absolutely crucial to TCU's playoff hopes. For the season, he's rushed for 442 yards and six touchdowns. He's logged 164 and 164 yards on the ground in each of his last two games and has scored two touchdowns in three consecutive contests.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein notes that TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green "is a creative runner with instant change-of-direction skills that allow him to cut and go without gearing down."

Zierlein ranks Green as the nation's No. 10 RB. "Green features outstanding play speed over the first 20 yards, and he's a smooth pass catcher with a chance to create matchup issues out of the backfield," Zierlein wrote. "The only real knock on Green is that he's a little undersized and could stand to be a strong run finisher." The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Green, a transfer from Nebraska, had 922 yards on 129 carries (7.1 YPC) with nine touchdowns to earn second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2014. Regarding those numbers, consider this: Green didn't have more than six carries in a game until November 1, and he didn't have as many as 20 in any game all season. With B.J. Catalon gone, Green is going to break out in a huge way this year.

TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green "is the clear centerpiece of the running back rotation as a senior, bringing big-play speed to a high-powered offense," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The transfer from Nebraska had 922 yards on 129 carries with nine touchdowns to earn second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2014. With B.J. Catalon gone, Green will be in line for even more work in 2015.

TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green "could be one of the top-five senior prospects at his position in the 2016 class," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Although he lacks ideal long-speed, he is a determined and focused runner, taking advantage of each touch with terrific instincts in space. Green also showed he could be a reliable pass catcher with 19 receptions for 166 yards and two touchdowns last season. He has his limitations, but could be one of the top-five senior prospects at his position in the 2016 class," Brugler wrote. The TCU prospect earned the starting RB job with 4 games left in the season, and racked up 922 yards on 129 carries with nine touchdowns, while earning second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2014.

TCU junior RB Aaron Green had 19 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday.

That marks back-to-back nice starts for Green, who's rolling in place of B.J. Catalon (upper-body). He ran up the middle for a nice 24-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, showcasing the acceleration and burst that scouts like from the runner. Green is a San Antonio native and transferred to TCU because Ameer Abdullah was blocking his path for running glory. Once Catalon returns, TCU is expected to split carries between the two backs.

TCU junior RB Aaron Green "certainly has the attention of NFL scouts" after his performance against Kansas State, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"A San Antonio native, Green left Lincoln due to his lack of playing time behind Ameer Abdullah and his desire to be closer to home. He will share the backfield duties once Catalon returns to the field, but Green certainly has the attention of NFL scouts after his performance over the weekend," Brugler wrote. The Nebraska-transfer carried the rock 18 times, averaging 9.5 yards a carry, with 171 yards rushing and one touchdown against Kansas State. Brugler notes that the TCU prospect "showed off his light feet and explosive lateral cuts to make defenders miss in space and then burst downfield with instant acceleration."

TCU junior RB Aaron Green ran the ball 18 times for 171 yards on Saturday.

Green was replacing regular starter B.J. Catalon, who was out with an upper-body injury. TCU didn't miss a beat, as Green was ripping off big runs on a regular basis against Kansas State. The Nebraska-transfer had a nifty 65-yard touchdown run in which he took a hand-off to the right, then revered course and picked up blockers on the other side of the field. "This is almost like a once in a lifetime opportunity," Green said. "We might potentially have a chance to play for a national championship."

Aaron Green announced that he will transfer to TCU.

Feeling he did not fit into the Cornhuskers’ scheme, the running back indicated late last month that he was leaving Nebraska, though he did not reveal where he was headed. The Texas native will be closer to home and play in what he feels will be s system better suited to his skills. Unless Green petitions the NCAA for a waiver, he will have to sit out the 2012 season. That timing could prove beneficial as, among TCU’s leading running backs from a year ago, only Waymon James will still be around.

Running back Aaron Green is leaving Nebraska.

According to his father, Green felt he did not fit into the Cornhuskers system and has decided to leave Lincoln. Oklahoma and Baylor are among schools Green is considering and he would have to sit out a year as a transfer to another FBS program. As a freshman last season, Green ran for 105 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He was expected to have a larger role in 2012. Green’s brother, Andrew, is a defensive back with the ‘Huskers.
