Why is Golden a soft verbal to Arizona and open to playing for other schools?
"I'm pretty open again right now. I'm comfortable with Arizona, but I really want to be a part of a good team. Arizona is an up and coming team, but I don't know. I want to go somewhere where I know the coaches will be there next year. I just want to be a part of a good team, you know. I'm looking at Arizona, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and Ole Miss. I'm pretty open to everybody right now, to see what they have to offer. I have offers from all of these schools."
Golden currently has official visits scheduled with Georgia Tech (Sep. 15th), Ole Miss (Nov. 17th), and Michigan (Sep. 28th). Golden is scheduled to visit the Yellow Jackets along with a highly rated teammate of his, Brandon Leslie. He says there is a possibility the two could play for the same college.
So what is Robert's interest level in Georgia Tech?
"I like them a lot. Georgia Tech, they're a real good school. I like the schemes of the defense and how they play. They also graduate a lot of their players. Me and Coach Gailey talk a lot."
What games did Robert watch this Saturday and what stood out to him?
"I caught the Georgia Tech-Notre Dame game. Georgia Tech really stood out. Their defense and secondary were unbelievable. California is always good, I saw them beat Tennessee. I watched Arizona and BYU. Arizona's defense looked okay, but they had no offense. I also saw a little of the UCLA-Stanford game."
Robert is having a good time right now playing football with his Edison teammates. He says they have come together as a defense as "one accord" and are looking great. Robert is set to make his final decision on a school at the US Army All American Game.
