40 time: 4.6
From: Baltimore, Maryland
High School: Woodlawn
"Coach Simms and Barnett were in my house last week. I also talked to Coach Simms just yesterday," said Goode.
Although the Buffs are after Jason extremely hard, he says Maryland is currently recruiting him the hardest.
Jason took a trip to Maryland last weekend and had a great time. He also had a good time on his trip to Boulder the weekend of January 9th.
"Colorado was different. I love the scenery there and how diverse it is. The football team seems to be building and I like their work ethic."
Jason is no stranger to a strong work ethic. In fact, he believes this is his greatest attribute.
"I work very hard. I really push myself. I think I have good speed and can catch, but what really sets me apart is my work ethic. I always get the job done. I am a toal perfectionist and I always just tell myself that there is someone out there who is better than me so I will work even harder."
Goode certainly worked hard on making other teams and players look bad this year. From his tight end spot he had 19 catches for 400 yards. At running back he had 25 rushes for 550 yards. At wide receiver he caught the ball 15 times for 328 yards. He had 14 touchdowns on offense. On defense from the linebacker, defensive end, and safety positions he totaled 30 tackles and 10 sacks. These numbers earned him first team all-city, all-county, and all-metro honors.
Colorado likes him at fullback. Maryland likes him at tight end. Boston College wants him at defensive end. Goode prefers to play offense.
"I think my strengths and attributes are better suited for the offensive side of the ball."
It was believed that Goode was worried about Maryland because they wanted to grayshirt him and worried about Boston College because they liked him on defense. He does not need to worry anymore.
"Maryland is now offering me to come in the fall. The grayshirt thing wasn't that big of a deal, but it is a little better now that I could go there this fall. Boston College has told me I could move around positions if things didn't work out at defensive end."
Goode says all three schools have told him the opportunity is there for him to play early if he is ready.
"They all told me that I have the potential to go in there and compete."
He says his family has no preference on a school.
"They are just concerned with me making the right decision for my future."
Jason still insists that he has no favorite amongst his top three, and has decided when he will announce.
"I will announce on signing day between the three. I just need more time to myself to be really sure about what I am going to do."
Goode carries a 3.7 core GPA and scored a 960 on his SAT. He is thinking of a major in Computer Science but is still undecided on that.
