Rasheem Green remains uncommitted, and judging by his newly released list of favorites, he still has a long way to go toward making a decision.

The 5-star defensive tackle included 15 programs among his top options less than eight months away from national signing day.

He shared the list on Twitter:

It comes as no surprise that the Southern California standout is still considering several West Coast options. UCLA and USC are both contenders for the Los Angeles County prospect.

Green, who attends Junipero Serra High School, saw a pair of premier teammates pick USC during the 2014 recruiting cycle. Quarterback Jalen Greene and cornerback Adoree' Jackson signed as part of head coach Steve Sarkisian's first Trojans class.

Linebacker Dwight Williams, another senior member of the 2013 Junipero Serra squad, signed with UCLA.

Stanford and Cal also survived the cut, presenting additional in-state opportunities. His list is heavy with Pac-12 teams, as Oregon and Arizona State are also in the picture.

Green showed he's open to the idea of playing college football far beyond his hometown, with Miami, Boston College, Notre Dame and Oklahoma all landing on the list. He is also eyeing a collection of SEC squads.

Florida, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, LSU and Alabama are still in pursuit of the disruptive interior defender.

Green, who stands 6'5" and 275 pounds, is tremendously athletic for a player of his stature. He was clocked at 4.80 seconds in the 40-yard dash and utilizes an array of speed moves in the trenches to outmaneuver offensive linemen.

Rated No. 3 nationally among defensive tackles in 247Sports' composite rankings, Green was named Most Valuable Lineman in the star-studded Mission League last season.

He tallied 57 tackles, including a team-high 26 tackles for loss. Green led Junipero Serra with 14 sacks.

USC is viewed as a strong favorite for his commitment, and the Trojans are projected to sign him by every expert prediction in 247Sports' Crystal Ball.
