Elijah Golden
Defensive End, Class of 2026
IMG Academy, Bradenton FL
6-4, 260

It’s been 14 months since defensive end Elijah Golden made a life-changing move. On Feb. 11, 2023, the King George (Va.) standout transferred to IMG Academy (Fla.).

The benefits have been noticeable. Golden now has 12 scholarship offers, most recently from Notre Dame, Indiana and North Carolina. It’s still been a lot to process, and for the time being, Golden said he’s still weighing his options.

“I feel like I’m still in advising, getting offers, slowly seeing what schools want me the most,” he said. “I’m still seeing what school I’m the best fit for. I actually have made a lot of progress. When I came here, I had six offers, now I have 12, which is good.”
