Four-star, 2023 defensive lineman Stephiylan Green places the Rebels in his Top Six
OXFORD, Miss. — On Saturday, 4-star defensive lineman Stephiylan Green out of Rome, Georgia unveiled his Top 6 list, and the Rebels made the cut.
This was a big weekend for Ole Miss football as head coach Lane Kiffin and staff watched many of their playmakers hear their names called in the 2022 NFL Draft. But with eyes focused on the future, the Rebs are out there grinding on the recruiting front.
For Green, Ole Miss will go head-to-head with SEC foes Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Clemson and Ohio State round out his top six.
Other schools who offered Green but didn’t make his top six include: Penn State, Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame, Arkansas, LSU, Purdue, Michigan State, Duke, Kentucky, Miami, Texas, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, South Carolina.

The 6-4, 275-pound Green currently ranks as the No. 42 defensive lineman in the nation and the No. 29 prospect at any position in the state of Georgia.
Green has quickly become a breakout player in the 2023 class, already holding over 22 offers to date. Even with the drop of his Top 6, you can expect there will be more suitors arriving on the scene as we head into the summer season.

Ole Miss has been successfully addressing the need for big, athletic players on the defensive line, and the versatile Green would be a huge pickup for the Rebels’ 2023 class.
Take a look at Green’s power. Just a little light work!

Green is an athlete who can break through an offensive line and create chaos. Here are some of his attributes that stand out:
- Great hands
- Extremely explosive pass rusher
- Strong when coming off the end
- Physical head hunter when it comes to going head-to-head against the o-line
Look for Green to remain one of the 2023 breakout linemen to watch as he heads into his senior season this fall.
Stay tuned to Rebel Walk Recruiting, and we will keep you updated on Green’s journey!
