Friendship Collegiate’s Eddie Goldman pares down list to seven schools including Maryland

Goldman, who has offers from virtually every major Division I school in the country, is considering, in no particular order: Alabama, Auburn, California, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland and Miami, Friendship Collegiate Coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim said.

“Those are schools that he feels most comfortable with,” Abdul-Rahim said. “He feels comfortable with the staff and their situation. I think there are different reasons for different schools.”

Goldman, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman, has taken unofficial visits to all seven of the schools, Abdul-Rahim said.

Maryland stands as the most curious selection of the bunch, as it is the only local school in Goldman’s list and is also not a national recruiting powerhouse as the others.

Goldman hopes to take five official visits to colleges during the high school year, Abdul-Rahim said. And Goldman isn’t expected to make a decision prior to the first day players are allowed to sign in February.
