Robersonville (N.C.) Roanoke cornerback Trimane Goddard had a big weekend at the Shrine Bowl, held in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Goddard, a four-star prospect, has three visits remaining. Does he have a leader?
Goddard scored twice for the North Carolina squad this past weekend. He played slot receiver in the game and caught one touchdown reception and ran in a four-yard misdirection play to seal the victory for North Carolina over South Carolina 21-12. Goddard is being recruited by most schools as a cornerback, although he plays quarterback, wide receiver, and running back as well. Where does Trimane feel most comfortable?
"I feel comfortable on the field. I don't care where I am playing as long as I am out there. I think my best shot to play on Sundays is at cornerback though."
Who leads for Goddard?
"I like Virginia, Florida State, North Carolina, and Tennessee. I have been to Virginia on an official visit already and I liked it there. Virginia is really strong right now, but I want to take the rest of visits. Florida State has been recruiting really hard as well. I talked to coaches from both Virginia and Florida State at the Shrine Bowl."
Trimane is set to visit North Carolina on Jan. 9, Tennessee on Jan. 16, and Florida State on Jan. 23. The talented athlete said that he will take all of his visits before making a decision. What does Goddard look for in school?
"Acadmeics are important to me. I look at the coaches, players, and the recruits. I want to have a chance to play early and go to the place that will give me the best chance to play at the next level."
