Edison-Friendship Public Charter School (Washington D.C.) junior Eddie Goldman claims offers from all over the country.

The big boys in the SEC, the powers from the Big Ten, Pac 10 and ACC—most have already offered.

Clemson is among those offering a scholarship.

In a recent interview with CUTigers, Goldman talked about his interest in the Tigers.

"I have a lot of interest," he said. "The atmosphere for the games— just the love the home crowd gives the team. I don't know much about their academics. What I've seen so far, I've liked it."

All of what he's seen was on TV. Goldman's yet to take a visit to Tigertown, but he would like to, at some point.

For now, he claims no favorites.

"I haven't really narrowed it down to a top 15," Goldman said. "Right now, I'm just seeing how many more offers I can get, from certain schools. I'm just going through my options."

A few key things will be evaluated as he wades through the stacks of offers.

"I want to feel comfortable at the school I'm at. I want the school to good atmosphere, good academics, good head coach—a good relationship with him—and good football players that care about each other," Goldman said.

As a junior, he had 35 tackles, five sacks, two pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery.

Goldman said he's receives the most mail from Alabama, Florida, Maryland and North Carolina.

This fall, he did not take any game day visits. Goldman does plan to start hitting the road later this winter and spring, but has yet to make any specific plans.
