One of the nation's top safety prospects will be making his commitment announcement on Wednesday.
Tahaan Goodman, a safety out of Rancho Cucamonga, CA, will be announcing his college decision at 5:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Goodman has recently made visits to UCLA and Oklahoma, but also has USC, LSU, and Texas A&M among his top choices. He holds offers from schools around the country, but does appear to be leaning towards staying close to home as either a Bruin or a Trojan.
Goodman is a consensus four-star prospect. At 6'2, 190, he has the size to help out in the run game, and with 4.5 speed, he possesses the speed to stick with receivers in coverage.
Scout ranks Goodman as the seventh-best safety available. Rivals pegs him the highest positionally at No. 4, while ESPN rates him as No. 9. All services have him in their top 100 of the 2013 freshman class, with 247 Sports slotting him the highest at No. 46. Wherever he chooses to spend the next four years, that school will certainly be getting a top-tier defensive back.
