Godfrey's Decision Should Come Early This Week

Baytown (Lee), Texas cornerback Charles Godfrey has made all of his visits and is very close to choosing a college. His decision will come down to Iowa or Missouri and he is expected to decide on Tuesday. HN.com spoke with his high school coach, Dick Olin, to get the latest on the process.

"I would say that Charles is a cover corner. He can run pretty well." Olin said. "He was unanimous pick first team all district, he made 82 tackles, had three INT's and returned one kickoff for a touchdown."

In addition to being Godfrey's coach, Olin is also the father and former high school coach of Iowa quarterback Drew Tate. Tate played with Godfrey last year at Baytown and he also has a brother at Kansas State in Ell Roberson.

So with so many resources for Godfrey to call upon as he makes his decision, has there been any communication there to help him with his choice?

"Yes, we talk to him about those things. We can't ever tell a kid where to go, because they would be unhappy with you and the situation. We try to tell them that they need to go where they feel comfortable and they will know." Olin said.

"Whether its Missouri or Iowa, the facilities are nice, the leagues are great and the coaches are all good. It's a difficult choice, but a young man will just know what is right for him."

"I think it is a hard decision for any young man. When you are looking at the next four or five years of your life, it is a tough choice."

Godfrey told Hawkeyenation.com and TheInsider's Josh Clark that he will have a decision soon.

"I will have a decision made this week. I just have to decide between the Big Ten and Big Twelve. I felt a little more at home at Iowa, but I've grown up on Big Twelve football and believe that it's the best conference. I'll be talking to Coach Olin, and my brother (Ell Roberson) at some point tomorrow (Monday) as well. This is a tough decision for me to make."
