The Latest On Montana TE Jason Goodman

You don't see too many players heavily recruited out of Montana but this year, Jason Goodman is an exception. The tight end from Great Falls (Mont.) Russell is hearing from schools all over the country and boasts five solid offers right now.

Goodman, 6-4, 230 pounds is a two time Student Sports Underclass All-American and put up big numbers as junior. He caught 33 balls for 509 yards and six touchdowns for a team that went 13-0 and won a state championship.

Goodman also earned 1st team All-State honors as a punter and is receiving interest in basketball as well after earning 1st team All-State honors in hoops for the second straight year. Goodman will start at inside linebacker as a senior but is being recruited strictly as a tight end.

"I don't know how so many schools heard about me being from Montana but things have been going great," Goodman said. "I've gotten letters from schools all over including all of the Pac 10 plus Miami, Florida State, Notre Dame, everyone.

"I have scholarship offers from Montana State, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Missouri. I don't really have a leader right now but I do like the Pac 10 and would like to take a few of my official visits to Pac 10 schools if I can."

Goodman has already taken several unofficial trips over the spring including stops at Washington, Washington State and just recently returned from Arizona's football camp.

"I liked all the schools a lot," Goodman said. "Washington was great and it's a school I definitely want to take an official visit to. Arizona is another school and I know I want to check out Colorado officially too."

As for what he's looking for in a school, Goodman said he wants to play for a college that uses the tight end.

"I like blocking but I really like catching the ball," Goodman said. "I'm looking for schools that throw the ball to the tight end as well as a school where I won't have to sit behind a bunch of tight ends until I'm a senior, I want to play. Plus a strong Business program is important as well as just the overall feel of the school and how comfortable I'll be there."
