Golston Now Home

Kedric Golston is back home from a long hospital stay after a serious car accident. The big guy from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School is ready to get back to work.

Kedric Golston has a lot to be thankful for. The defensive tackle prospect is blessed with great size, speed and power. He just may be the most coveted defensive prospect in America. He is also blessed just to be a live. About a month ago, he was involved in a terrible car accident, but he only sustained a broken leg. The injury was pretty severe. Golston had a rod inserted in his leg. He was also in Intensive Care for 12 days and had trouble breathing. But 23 days after the accident, Golston was thankful just to finally be home again.

"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."
