Tight End Not Ready to Announce

A recruiting update on Michael Goggans is featured.

Alexander City, Ala.-Tight end Michael Goggans plans to wait until Wednesday's national signing day to announce his college choice.

The 6-3, 250-pounder from Benjamin Russell High School did not take any official visits this weekend. He took three visits to Auburn, Alabama and Tennessee, where he had been an early verbal commitment.

His mother told Inside the Auburn Tigers that Goggans was not going to comment on recruiting again until Wednesday when he signs scholarship papers.

Previously, the tight end said that he planned to have a decision made shortly after his Tennessee visit, which he took a week ago. He is expected to chose between Tennessee and Auburn.

Benjamin Russell, which reached the semi-finals of the Class 5A state playoffs, is expected to have four seniors sign Division I scholarships. The group includes a pair of defensive players, linebacker LaBronski Hutchins, a verbal to Alabama, and Demetrius Culpepper, who is verbal to Louisville.

Quarterback Martevious Young is committed to Southern Mississippi.

The Benjamin Russell High team also features junior linebacker Eltoro Freeman, who is considered one of the top prospects in the state for the 2007 signing class.
