Baltimore (Md.) Gilman School athlete Kenneth Goins landed a new offer in the past couple weeks. The 5-foot-9, 210-pounder pulled the scholarship from the ACC. Now with the season behind him, Goins is starting to set up trips and even has a leader heading into the visits.
"We just won the championship over Calvert Hall," he said. "I thought I did well. I scored a touchdown and we won in overtime. I also had a sack in overtime too.
"Our team achieved all of our goals we wanted to achieve and I think it was a good season. I think I improved this year in all aspects of my game."
That improvement was clearly seen by one school, Maryland who offered Goins in the past week.
"They offered about a week ago," he said. "I'm not sure what they saw in my highlight tape, but I was making a lot of plays. It sounded good to me. I was surprised, I didn't think they'd offer."
Goins plans to head up to Maryland next weekend on December 3rd for an unofficial visit.
Officials to Syracuse on December 9th and Tulane will follow, Tulane in early January.
"I'm trying to find out which college I'm going to go to," he said. 'Those three schools are the actual ones that have called me and told me I had an offer from them. They are the three in contact with me."
According to Goins, Maryland is sticking out at this stage.
"I think right now Maryland is leading," he said. "I think it's their coaching staff. They sound the most official to me and I feel like I've been talking to them the most."
