Goldman meets with coaches

Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy defensive tackle Eddie Goldman is now the nation's No. 2 prospect after the latest Rivals.com rankings release and the attention from the media as well as from coaches is becoming extreme. This week Goldman met with coaches from Auburn, Florida State, Alabama and Miami. Here's the latest on the five-star.

"I met with coach Thigpen from Auburn on Tuesday and he just went over how I liked the visit there and talked to my parents and my coach about how I'd fit in," Goldman said. "I really liked the visit down there so that hasn't changed."

Next up was Florida State.

"I spoke to coach Haggins Wednesday and he said how they want to do it the right way and build the team from the defense. He wants me to be a part of what they are building there and be part of a great defensive line," Goldman said. "He said I could play early depending on how I perform and didn't promise me anything which I like. I don't want promises."

Alabama came in after Florida State.

"Coach Sunseri was just re-capping what I liked about Alabama when I was down there, how I could impact the line and things like that," he said. "He's another coach I feel comfortable with."

Finally, Miami came in Thursday night and tried to get Goldman to take his next official to Coral Gables.

"Coach Franklin came in and he wanted me to take my official visit next weekend, December 9, but I'm not sure yet," he said. "I like Miami but I am not sure of my next visit yet. It will be either Miami, Cal or Clemson and I should know that soon."

Goldman recently named his top three as Alabama, Auburn and Florida State in no order, but that's because those are the three schools he's seen.

"I've taken three visits and those are the schools I feel most comfortable with of course," he said. "I still want to take two more and compare all of them."

Goldman wasn't sure when Clemson or Cal were coming in to visit.
