From Corey Long of ESPN:
The No. 2 ranked prospect in the nation, DT Eddie GoldmanEddie Goldman Defensive Line 6-4, 305 Washington DC, View Full Profile (Washington, D.C./Collegiate Academy), made his way to the FSU practice fields Wednesday evening and will be an interested spectator for the next few days.
"I really want to see Coach Odell [Haggins] in action and see his passion for coaching up close," Goldman said.
The 6-4, 310-pounder says he and the FSU defensive line coach have formed a solid bond.
"He's very up front with you about the way things are," Goldman said. "There isn't going to be any trickery with him and he's not going to fill your mind with a bunch of fake promises. He's not going to sell you any dreams."
Goldman says he plans on being in Tallahassee until Friday after seeing Alabama earlier in the week. He also plans on a second trip to the Southeast to see more schools.
"I'll probably check out Auburn, Georgia, Miami and South Carolina the next time I'm in the area," Goldman added.
Expect Goldman to take an official to FSU, and he could choose Sept. 17 when the Seminoles host Oklahoma. The Under Armour All-American is eyeing a decision in late September or October but doesn't have a date in mind.
"At the end of the day I just want to go to a place where I'm surrounded by good people," Goldman said.
