Two down, two to go…that is how many official visits remain for one of the top athletes in the East, Roanoke High School’s (Robersonville, NC) Trimaine Goddard .
UNC, who along with Virginia were tops on Trimaine’s list of schools earlier in the recruiting process, had their shot to impress this past weekend on an official visit. According to Goddard, he had a good time in Chapel Hill.
“It went pretty well,” Goddard said of his official to UNC. “I was hosted by [freshman wide receiver] Mike Mason. I had a chance to chill with all of the players…we all ate together and played video games. It was good hanging out with them. Overall, it was pretty exciting but it wasn’t different from my first official visit.”
Goddard’s first official visit was to the University of Virginia. When asked to compare his first two trips, Trimaine said “they were both about the same. I feel comfortable at both places, and I can’t really compare.”
One concern Trimaine had heading into the UNC visit was whether or not UNC’s defensive coaching situation would be resolved. Former UNC Defensive Coordinator and Linebackers Coach Dave Huxtable relinquished his role on the team in December.
Following the weekend, Goddard indicated he no longer has any concerns about the UNC coaching situation.
“I’m not sure how much I can say, but I think the position will be filled soon,” Goddard said. “I don’t have any concerns about it now.”
This weekend, Trimaine will make an official visit to Tennessee. He finishes up his official visits with a trip to Florida State on the 24th, and then hopes to decide among all four programs involved. Currently, he mentions no favorite schools.
“They are all about the same,” Goddard says of his top four schools. “I don’t have any favorites. I want to take all of my official visits to compare all of the schools.”
Though Goddard can play many different positions, the one mentioned with him most is cornerback. He has the ability to be an outstanding cornerback on the next level, and also figures to at least return kicks and punts as well.
