Three-Star RB Has Good First Visit

An excellent running back from Eastern Pennsylvania has begun his visit process, and considers his first "well-taken".

"It was a good visit overall," Easton Area High School's Ovid Goulbourne said of his trip to West Virginia. "It was my first time there, and I had a good time. The facilities were very nice.

"The things that really stood out for me was how much time they took with the players and the strength and conditioning staff. The coaches and everyone took a lot of time to talk with us.

"I was also impressed with the strength and conditioning they do. They aren't just into lifting weights and making you big. They work with your balance, getting your core stronger, everything. They are very energetic."

Goulbourne has been patient with the recruiting process, but admits that his visit to West Virginia has moved the school up in his eyes.

"I haven't put anyone in order yet, but West Virginia is in my top three now," the well-spoken senior said. "I've been trying to figure out who my top schools are, but West Virginia is right up there."

Goulbourne has no other visits set yet, but expects to take more trips after the holidays. Boston College, Pittsburgh, Connecticut and Indiana are among the other schools with interest in Goulbourne, who has the versatility to play a number of positions. At Easton, he played running back and defensive back.

Even though Goulbourne has yet to identify a top five or set additional visits, he says the recruiting process hasn't been overwhelming.

"It hasn't been too difficult," said Goulbourne, who whould like to take more visits before making his decision. "I'm working through it."
