Eddie Goldman is the top defensive tackle recruits in the country. Starring for Washington D.C.'s Friendship Academy, Goldman holds more than 40 offers from BCS schools, including Alabama, LSU, Florida State, USC, Ohio State, Clemson, Penn State, Maryland, Michigan, Oregon, Miami and Florida. Goldman has handled the recruiting process in a professional manner and recently spoke with SB Nation about his recruitment.
Goldman recently participated in the Under Armour All-America Game. "There's been so much competition. It's been great," said Goldman.
Goldman had already taken official visits to Alabama, Auburn, Florida State and Miami. With only one official visit left (recruits are allowed a maximum of five), he was considering a visit to Clemson, Maryland or Cal. "I might go. I'm not sure," said Goldman. As of now, Golden has not scheduled another official visit.
Goldman has a strong bond with two of the coaches recruiting him. "I like coach Odell [Haggins] at Florida State. We have a good relationship. I like coach Sal [Sunseri] at Alabama. He's a real dude."
Note: Sunseri has since left Alabama to take the defensive coordinator job at Tennessee.
How important is a a favorable depth chart to Goldman? Apparently, not very much. "[I'm] not worried about it. I just have to go play and earn my spot," said Goldman.
Goldman plans to sign on signing day, though he could sign sooner if his mind is made up.
