"It is good to be home," said Golston. "I am not even in a cast. Doctors said my leg is too big for a cast. Believe it or not, I am now walking without crutches. Doctors think the leg could be back to normal in about 4-6 months."
A month ago, Golston stood 6-4 and weighed 280 pounds. Today, he is 6-4 and 250 pounds. But it should not take long for him to get back his strength, especially in the upper body. In fact, Golston hopes to play football next season as a true freshman.
"I do not think I will have to red-shirt. If I work hard and keep going, and at the same time, don't over-do it, then I think I can play next season."
Golston still has not gone back to Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School. Instead, he has a home teacher because he fell so far behind in his studies.
In regards to recruiting, nothing new has really changed. "I still like Georgia, FSU, Florida, Tennessee, and Auburn. I have not set up any visits and it will depend on my leg and how I feel. I believe all the scholarships are still on the table. I do not think anybody has pulled out. If they did, oh well. It will be there loss because I will be back."
