Gooden Down to Two

Ann Arbor Huron WR Daryl Gooden is narrowing his list down and the talented pass catcher has two schools left on the board. Where do the Lakers stand? Are they in his final two? GVReport got the scoop.

There is plenty of time for Daryl Gooden to make a decision. After all, what else does he have to do right now?

"I'm kind of bored," he confessed, "I have nothing to do now that football is over."

So focus on recruiting it is. Earlier in the week, Gooden spoke to a pair of MAC schools and the result was him being able to narrow down his list.

"Central Michigan told me they don't need more receivers, but I could walk on," Gooden said, "I went to Toledo on a vist, they were up to my school last Friday. They like me, but they are only taking one receiver, so that might be a choice for me."

Then there are the Lakers of GVSU, who Gooden's father, Daryl Sr. played for in the 1970s.

"Coach Pawlowski came to my school and got my stuff and told me to do good on my ACT and I'll be all set."

Gooden also said his score on the ACT will be one of the key factors in whether or not Toledo puts forth an offer. But it looks like it will be a Rocket-Laker battle and not of the NBA variety.

"Some smaller schools like Dayton called and asked for film but right now, GVSU and Toledo might be my main choices."

For his senior season, Gooden had 25 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns and added a kick return for a score. He takes his ACT on December 1st.
