Im still talking to Coach Bankins about coming out for a game, Golden, who is being recruited as a center but also plays defensive tackle at his high school, said.
The visit is not solidified yet, but will probably take place sometime in October. Maryland has their homecoming game against Wake Forest on October 30.
Im watching the defensive line, the offensive line, how they come off the ball, how low they get and how many people get rotated in and out of the game, he said. They have a good rotation.
Im interested in everybody right now; until Ive made my decision Im not counting anybody out, he said.
Starting out his final high school season with a bang, Golden recorded big numbers on both offense and defense to open Northsides first five games with three sacks, five forced fumbles, 37 tackles, two fumble recoveries and 21 pancakes. The team began 3-2.
Were looking pretty good, he said. We are a very young team with a bunch of things we need to fix, but Im looking to take state.
Even with his success on defense, the Terps are still recruiting him to play on the offensive line.
They still want me at center, Golden said. I actually sent them some film of my recent games.
Golden does not have a top five right now, but he tagged his interest in the Terrapins as very high and cited LSU as the team he has the most interest in so far. He visited Baton Rouge over the summer and had the opportunity to speak with LSUs Head Coach Les Miles.
For now, he will have to play the waiting game until he receives the offers he is hoping to get. He said he is not sure when to expect an offer from Maryland.
I hope it will be soon, he said.
