Five-star Goldman to visit Miami

Eddie Goldman has set his fourth official visit.

The five-star defensive tackle from Washington (D.C.) Friendship will travel to Miami this upcoming weekend. Miami was once a strong player for Goldman's services before allegations of widespread NCAA rules violations dropped the Hurricanes.

Goldman has already taken official visits to Florida State in September and Alabama and Auburn in October.

Yet the 6-foot-4, 310-pounder doesn't have to travel to meet coaches. They'll come to him.

Goldman and his mother, Sharon Davis, had dinner with Auburn assistant coach Tommy Thigpen on Sunday evening.

“He's a really cool guy, really down to earth, really funny,” Davis said. “(The conversation) was pretty much they want him really bad. They could see him helping them out. They have a young team so they're growing. They want Eddie to grow with them.”

California defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi is scheduled to visit on Monday. Last week, Alabama, Florida State and Florida traveled north to visit with Goldman.

Goldman will have one official left to take. Davis said there are no current plans on when or where to take it.
