Goforth Visits ASU, UCLA Next

The talented athlete from Long Beach Poly, Randall Goforth still considers himself a soft verbal to Arizona State, and he talks about his visit to Tempe last weekend...

Randall Goforth, the 6-0, 180-pound athlete from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly, took his official visit to Arizona State last weekend.

A early verbal to ASU, Goforth told Scout.com's Arizona State site, DevilsDigest.com, the ASU visit was a good one. "This visit really opened my eyes to a lot of new things that I didn't see before," Goforth said. "It was a very productive trip."

Goforth visited with the Long Beach Poly contingent -- which also includes Josiah Blandin, Richard Smith, and Salamo Fiso -- that are all verbally committed to the Sun Devils.

Goforth commented about the Poly teammates sticking together with their commitment: ""It would be great if all of us would go to the same school because we would love to play with each other. But at the same time, if it happens it happens, and if it doesn't it doesn't. We all have to do what is best for us. Hopefully we will all see each other at the next level."

Goforth, who has been projected as both a wide receiver and cornerback, said the ASU staff told him they could see him playing either position and like the traits he brings to the table. "The coaches told me that I'm a real explosive player," Goforth stated. "They also said I'm an impact player that can come in and help the team right away. They like my vision and my quickness too."

The trip seemed to have a big impact on Goforth's opinion of the new ASU staff. "It was great meeting the new coaching staff," Goforth said. "My whole deal coming on this visit was to check out the new coaching staff and I really like what I saw and what I felt from them. They are really good people."

Goforth said that he still considers himself a soft verbal to ASU, but that his recruitment is very much an on-going process for him. The Jackrabbit standout visited Washington the weekend before and still plans to visit UCLA this weekend.

"To be honest everything is still up in the air," Goforth admitted. "I really like all three schools so it will be a hard choice. I'm just going to sit down and talk to my family and my friends and see what is best for me."
