FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU football has announced the addition of tailback Aaron Green to the program.

Green, who played as a true freshman at Nebraska last season, will sit out the 2012 campaign per NCAA transfer rules and then have three years of eligibility beginning in 2013.

Green saw action in 12 games for the Cornhuskers in 2011 and was the team's fifth-leading rusher with 105 yards and two touchdowns.

Coming out of Madison High School in San Antonio, Green was ranked as the No. 11 overall prospect in the country by ESPN. Rivals and Scout.com listed him among the nation's top 10 running backs. Green rushed for nearly 5,000 yards in his prep career.

As a senior, Green totaled 1,717 yards and 19 touchdowns on a 7.2 per carry mark, helping lead Madison to the Class 5A state playoffs. He ran for more than 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior, while adding 151 receiving yards and three scoring grabs. Green rushed for 2,024 yards and 27 touchdowns as a sophomore, adding 16 receptions for over 200 yards and two scores.
