DESOTO — Jim Harbaugh got double his pleasure and an early gift when DeSoto twin defensive backs Gemon and German Green inked their names to National Letters of Intent five days before Christmas.

Truth be told, Gemon, a 6-foot-2 and 165-pound three-star free and strong safety, and German, a 6-foot-2 and 168-pound three-star cornerback, could solidify the back end of the Wolverine secondary for the next three to four years in Ann Arbor.

“I’m very excited to play for Jim Harbaugh,” Gemon said softly, restraining his excitement about making the 556-mile trip from Texas to Michigan. “It’s going to be great and playing in the big 10 is going to be a good experience for the both of us. From the time we started receiving offers, we knew that we wanted to play college football together.”

Gemon and German, which each have a 2016 University Interscholastic League Class 6A title under their belts, combined for 42 tackles and two interceptions during the championship run. They accounted for 65 of DeSoto’s 585 tackles and four of the Eagles’ seven interceptions a year later.

The twins also recovered four fumbles in their final two varsity seasons. That total was despite German missing most of his junior season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The two brothers are only six minutes apart — Gemon is the eldest — but have been playing in sync football and torturing opposing running backs and wide receivers since they were 4 years old. With fellow Eagles Byron “BJ” Hanspard, Jr., Jabbar Muhammad, and Isaiah Steward by their side, the duo joined one of the most deadly secondaries in all of high school sports.

One known best as the “No Fly Zone.”
