Gilman School (MD) had four-star Virginia signee Darius Jennings at quarterback and a pair of four-star running backs for 2012 in Cyrus Jones and Kenneth Goins. Goins admits he's the short-yardage back, and he's proved that he didn't need to rush for a lot of yards in 2010 to get the five offers he has so far—Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and West Virginia.
For example, Goins had a pair of big touchdown runs that helped his team to an important with over DeMatha Catholic.
"I wasn't like much of a factor at running back, but they put me in when we needed a short yardage touchdown," Goins added.
Goins hasn't been able to get to many spring practices because of a busy track schedule, where the 5-10, 210-pound standout runs the 100, the 200 and is a member of the 4x100 relay. He does have a few visits in the near future planned.
"I think I'm going to West Virginia this weekend for the spring game, but I haven't been to any other spring games," Goins said. "I'm going to Penn State again this summer. I think we're going to camp again. I'm going to visit Georgia Tech—those were the two I'm going to get to. Other camps as a team, I'm not sure yet."
Pitt is also one of those offers. It's also possible that Goins could get there for a visit, but he's unsure.
"I haven't heard much from them, but my coach (Biff Poggi) was telling me about them, but I haven't really talked to them a lot, so we'll see," Goins added. "I'm not too sure."
