"I started to get sick earlier this week, but it really hit me when I was out there," said Goggins.
A 6-2, 285-pounder out of Cerritos College in Norwalk, Calif. with three to play two, Goggins said he made the best out of it.
"Overall, the trip to Wazzu, it was cool. It's a small college town but it is somewhere you can straight focus... I can see them in the running, they're a Pac-10 school," said Goggins.
GOGGINS SAID HE sat down with Paul Wulff and d-line coach Malik Roberson and got a better sense of what the Cougar defensive front in 2010 will be about.
"They talked about where they could see me in the program, their plans for me if I was to come there," said Goggins. "I had some one-on-one time with coach Roberson and he gave me his philosophy, some insight and background on where he's coming from in coaching."
THE COUGAR PLAYERS also made an impression.
"The current players seem real hungry. You can tell they're real close together...they really like the program and feel like they're going to make a big step from last year," said Goggins.
LETTER OF INTENT DAY is right around the corner, falling on Wednesday, Feb. 3, but Goggins said he didn't anticipate making a decision soon.
"There's still one week left before Signing Day. So whoever comes out to visit (in-home) we'll see how it goes this week," said Goggins.
Goggins this past season logged 37 tackles, (14 solo) with 9.5 tackles for loss and a team-leading eight sacks.
