Contra Costa College DB Isaac Goins signs with Maryland

After seeing eight players leave the program for various reasons since season’s end, Maryland on Wednesday announced the addition of one player: Isaac Goins, a defensive back from Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Calif., has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Terrapins in 2012.

Goins, who has two years of eligibility remaining, will enroll at Maryland in January.

This past season, the 6-foot, 190-pound Goins was a first-team All-Bay Valley Conference selection after intercepting six passes. He was also nominated for all-region honors. In addition, Goins was named to the academic all-Conference team.

“I am happy that Isaac will be joining us,” Maryland Coach Randy Edsall said in a statement. “He possesses excellent coverage skills and plays the ball very well in the air. He is also a good tackler. Isaac is a quality young man who is solid in the classroom, as well as on and off the field.”

Goins, a native of Hercules, Calif., played high school football at El Cerrito High, where he was a first-team All-East Bay choice at wide receiver as a senior in 2009. He was also a first-team all-league selection that season at defensive back and receiver.
