Calvin Green electrified Cougar fans in this year's spring Crimson and Gray game by collecting over 100 yards receiving. Green is just a true freshman that enrolled early at WSU back in January. We asked him about the transition and how he has been able to make such a strong input so fast.

CougCenter: Cal, you forwent the end of your senior year in high school to come to WSU and enroll early. Can you talk about what that transition was like?

Green: It was tough at first to come into a crazy, different environment with snow and all of that. It was different and the transition was rough. It was rough for a few weeks, but I got used to it. I caught on.

CougCenter: Who has been instrumental in helping you as far as a mentor?

Green: I can't single anybody out because all the upperclassmen do a great job of leading the younger guys.

CougCenter: You had a really big spring game and caught for over a hundred yards. How did the spring go for you?

Green: From the start of spring I didn't know what I was doing. I didn't know a lot of the plays. And the spring game was really huge because it showed what I can do when I am confident in what I'm doing.

CougCenter: Coming out of the spring, what were some of the things you worked on over the summer?

Green: Just running and competing at full speed and showing that I know what I'm doing and that I can compete with the ones and twos.

CougCenter: Who have you been roomating with and how have things been going for you in camp?

I'm roomating with Dom Williams. It's great. You get a great chance to meet with everyone and to mingle with our teammates.
