Eddie Goldman Commits To Florida State Over Alabama, Auburn

Eddie Goldman, a consensus five-star recruit, has committed to Florida State, announcing the news on television on National Signing Day 2012. Goldman, who played for Friendship Collegiate in Washington, D.C., chose Florida State over Auburn and Alabama, the two other finalists for his services.

"I'm going to be surrounded by a lot of talent and I'm just going to do my best to contribute," Goldman said Wednesday at a Press Conference at his school.

Goldman had zeroed in on Florida State in the hours immediately prior to National Signing Day. Auburn and Alabama were the other two finalists, which he named while crossing schools like Maryland off his list. But the Seminoles are not a huge surprise, given that Jimbo Fisher was the last person to visit Goldman.

Goldman was the second highest rated defensive tackle in the Rivals rankings, trailing future teammate Mario Edwards. He joins a Seminoles squad that may end up having the top recruiting class in the country.

Eddie Goldman Recruiting Announcement Time, TV Schedule And More

One of the countries top recruits, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman, is expected to announce where he will play his college football on Wednesday morning at 10:05 a.m. ET on ESPNU. Goldman played his high school for Friendship Collegiate in Washington D.C. and is expected to choose between Florida State, Auburn and Alabama. It is believed that the Seminoles are currently at the top of his list.

"I like coach Odell [Haggins] at Florida State. We have a good relationship. I like coach Sal [Sunseri] at Alabama. He's a real dude," Goldman told SBNation.com's Bud Elliot at the Under Armour All-American Game. (Note: Sunseri is no longer with Alabama, as he took the defensive coordinator position at Tennessee).

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher was the last coach that Goldman met with before he stopped making visits and he narrowed down his choices to just three schools last week. The five-star defensive lineman will make the announcement live from the campus of Friendship Collegiate in Washington, D.C.

Eddie Goldman, National Signing Day 2012: Defensive Tackle Narrows Choice To Three Schools

Friendship Collegiate defensive lineman Eddie Goldman, rated No. 7 overall for the Class of 2012 on Rivals, has narrowed his list of college choices to three schools a week before the 2012 National Signing Day, his coach told James Wagner of the Washington Post. Those three schools are Alabama, Auburn and Florida State, which means Maryland, one of seven teams on his original list, has dropped out.

Coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim told Wagner that Goldman will not visit any more schools or even take any visits from any coaches from now until National Signing Day. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was the last to visit Goldman on Tuesday.

The Seminoles are believed to be in the lead for Goldman's services, but a final decision will not be made until February 1, when Goldman will announce his college before a national television audience on ESPNU.
