USAAAB: Goodman Prepping for Busy Month

The Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) safety, Tahaan Goodman, will squeeze four visits in between now and Signing Day...

Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) safety Tahaan Goodman has been having the time of his life at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio this week.

"It's been a great experience and been a lot of fun," said Goodman. "Getting to play with friends, it's different too without pads, you get to see and play against guys with pads, and that brings a whole new aspect."

For a physical safety like Goodman, he's enjoying the opportunity to hit.

"In practice, these guys are all of our teammates, so you've got to slow it down, but like any other practice, you play like other professionals do and we've been getting after it," said Goodman.

The four-star will shift his attention to recruiting when he returns from the Army Bowl, and while he's only taken one official visit, he's got four left, with two schools definite.

"I've only officially visited UCLA, so I have all four visits left," said Goodman. "I'm going to visit Oklahoma and LSU and considering some other schools for the other two."

Goodman said he's without a leader, but a handful of schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"UCLA, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, LSU and a few other schools are in there and they're all recruiting me hard," said Goodman. "I'm not committed yet, so there is a good chance for every school."

Goodman said a decision isn't coming any time soon.

"I think most likely I am going to wait until Signing Day to decide," said Goodman.

Brandon is in his eighth year with, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the network since 2003.
