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.
