, who is No. 2 in the ESPNU 150, has tried to play his recruitment close to the vest. That's growing harder to do for the five-star defensive tackle.

It became increasingly obvious that Florida State has made a very strong impression shortly after the ceremony to officially name Goldman, the nation's top undecided prospect, to the Under Armour All-America Game in January. It was part of the 80-stop American Family Insurance presents the Under Armour All-America Game selection tour.

"It was playoff atmosphere," the 6-foot-4, 310-pound prospect from Washington D.C. Friendship said of his visit last month to Tallahassee, Fla., for the Oklahoma game. "It was to the point where it was past passion. People were standing the whole game. That's how loud it was. They lost (so) it could have been better but other than that it was great."

Goldman said he is working on an official visit to Alabama, but it seems as if any school other than Florida State will have a challenge to land the nation's top defensive tackle prospect.

"They are definitely on the rise," Goldman said. "They have the No. 1 quarterback (Jameis Winston Jameis Winston

) and their defensive line recruiting is through the roof."

Asked if any other school has stood out as much as Florida State, Goldman said, "Recruiting-wise, not really, but Florida State, they really have a good recruiting class."

Goldman said he'll announce his college decision on national signing day in February. He is also considering Auburn, California, Maryland, Miami and Clemson.
