View Full Profile's father, Eddie Muhammad, couldn't say enough about his family's trip to Florida State last weekend for the Oklahoma game.
"It was a mind-blowing experience, a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Muhammad said. "It's hard to find an adjective to describe how electric the crowd was. It was just deafening in there."
Goldman, a 6-4, 310-pound defensive tackle from Washington (D.C.) Friendship, continues to keep a low profile that belies his recruiting status, i.e. five-stars and second-best overall prospect in the nation.
Still, there is plenty of talk about Goldman in the nation's capitol. Much of which centers around the Seminoles. Many believe Florida State may have become the team to beat for Goldman, especially after securing his first official visit and produced a fantastic trip.
Muhammad maintained that's not the case.
"Nobody is the front runner at this point, but it was just a good visit," said Muhammad, who said his family is still equally considering his son's six other finalists: Auburn, Alabama, California, Maryland, Clemson and Miami.
Muhammad said there are no other official visits scheduled at this point, but that they should be coming very soon.
"We're trying to get them done in (Goldman's senior) season but time may not permit," Muhammad said.
Whether Florida State is the leader or not, the Seminoles should feel good about their standing. In addition to the game atmosphere, Muhammad said he was blown away by fans chanting his son's name and "FSU wants you". The family was also happy with the time spent with coach Jimbo Fisher and defensive line coach Odell Haggins.
