DL Eddie Goldman of Washington, DC makes his official visit to Florida State this weekend. That’s his first official visit and the only one he has scheduled. Six other schools are on his list…Clemson, Miami, Maryland, Cal, Alabama and Auburn.
OL Nick Davidson of Eden Prairie, MN has set his first official visit. Davidson said he will visit Stanford October 8th when the Cardinal takes on Colorado. That will give Davidson a chance to check out two of his final five at one time. His other three finalists are Clemson, Ohio State and Oregon. Davidson said there is no order to his final five.
USC has three defensive backs committed for 2012 and is expecting a fourth in Chaz Elder. They also are strongly in the mix for defensive backs Eli Shumate and Jordan Diggs. If they land all three, that might be all they take for their secondary. Then again, considering how depth has been a problem there this season, the Gamecocks might decide to take more. One player they are keeping in touch with is Wayne Morgan (5-11 191) of Brooklyn. He attended one of the Gamecock camps this summer and remains interested in the Gamecocks. “My coach has been in touch with them,” Morgan said. “He’s been talking with Coach Mangus. They are saying they are real interested. And I have a lot of interest in South Carolina.” Morgan said most of his other interest right now is come from Eastern schools…Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse and Connecticut. He has not decided on official visits and does not have any favorites.
Class of 2013 QB Cord Sandberg (6-2 205) of Bradenton, FL has offers from Clemson, Auburn, Iowa State, South Florida and Cincinnati. Clemson and Auburn are showing the most interest. “I don’t have a favorite but with Clemson and Auburn recruiting me the hardest, I have a lot of interest in both (schools),” Sandberg said. He has visited Clemson once before and likes the campus. “Coach (Tony) Elliott came down to watch me play last week,” he said. “We got to talk a little.” LSU, Stanford and Georgia are showing interest in Sandberg among other schools. He is also hoping to get more contacts from several other programs. “I visited Tennessee, Florida State, Auburn and Alabama this summer with my teammates,” he said. “I talked to coaches at Alabama and they really liked me. I liked them too. I hope that could lead to an offer. I also talked to FSU and Tennessee coaches so maybe I’ll get more interest from them too.” In his first game this season, Sandberg threw for 240 yards with a touchdown and an interception. In his second game, he played the first half and threw for 110 yards and a score and rushed for 71 yards and another score.
Class of 2013 ATH Jasper Sasser (6-2 185) of Jacksonville, FL has offers from Clemson and Southern Miss and is hearing from USC and Valdosta State. “I’ve got about 80 letters from schools that I haven’t gotten around to opening yet,” he admitted. This summer, he attended a camp in Clemson. “It’s really nice there,” Sasser said. “I watched the team practice and I like the way they give 100 percent. They looked really organized.” Sasser was impressed with the new weight room as well and is planning to take in a game at Death Valley this season. USC is also expressing interest. “I talked to Steve Spurrier, Jr. and he told me to call him back,” he said. “They want me to come to a game this year and I really want to go.” Sasser plays DB, RB and WR for his team and through two games has 14 tackles, 60 yards rushing and three receptions for 60 yards. He does not have a favorite.
