Is Golden still crimson?

HE VERBALLY PLEDGED to the Cougars way back in the summertime. But college football recruiting is a 24/7, 365 days a year endeavor and when it comes to the recruiting wars, it's never said and done until they sign on the dotted line. Recently, the Cougar verbal went on an official visit to a Big 12 school. So where do things stand for him and is he still WSU-bound?

He took an official visit to Colorado back on Dec. 18, but future Cougar Brandon Golden (CB/ATH; 6-0, 192, 4.4) says he remains committed to WSU and Paul Wulff and plans to sign with WSU on Letter of Intent Day in February.

"I'm still committed to Washington State," said Golden. "I just went with all my friends, they took four of us from my school (A.J. Powell, Adam Muema, Keith Smith, Golden), the coaches there treated us pretty well, it was fun."

GOLDEN SAID he didn't know of any other schools coming by for in-home visits this month other than Washington State. Cougar d-line coach Malik Roberson is running the point on Golden.

"I talk to Malik Roberson (often) and they came down last month and did a house visit, which was really good. And then we're talking about when we're going to schedule my official visit (likely Jan. 16) so that's the next step," said Golden.

Senior season stats were unavailable at press time but Golden was named to the first team All CIF-Southern Section Southeast Division, all-league and all-area for his work at corner this past season.

He also helped lead Charter Oak High to their second consecutive CIF-Southern Section Southeast Division championship.

Charter Oak is the same school that produced CougGreat Jason David, and Golden has idolized David for years.
