Rumors prove false for Texas RB

Rumors fly like the Concord when it comes to high profile recruits committing early.
According to Klein (Texas) Collins coach Ronnie Feldman, star running back Michael Goodson has not committed to Texas A&M, dispelling the rumor Aggie faithful wanted to take as gospel.
"It's not true," Feldman said. "He went up there a few weeks ago with the big offensive lineman from Klein (Chris Stewart). I think they talked about it and he said something like, "I think I'd like to commit also.' The rumor mill was flying after that.
"He really liked it and I think they are his favorite but he didn't commit. He could choose Texas A&M in the end, but I think he's going to do some looking around," Feldman said.
Goodson visited LSU a few weekends ago. Florida State came to visit last week. Southern California will be in this week. He's been offered by everyone. Player, coach and family have a recruiting plan in place for an early recruiting end game.
"He and his family are going to take some unofficial visits this spring and early summer," Feldman said. "They are going to go to the campus not as a celebrity recruit, but under the radar. Just tour the campus like a regular student and see where his gut feeling leads him. He will probably have his decision made by June or July."
The relatively new school has been abuzz since last season about their budding superstar.
"We were never on the map recruiting wise because we are such a new school," Feldman said. "A few kids before Michael put us on the radar and now we are officially on the map. No question, he's the best I've ever had and the most recruited I've had. I return 20-30 phone calls a day for requests."
Goodson is the main reason, but Klein Collins has other talent. Offensive lineman Matt Allen has committed to LSU, Franklin Mitchem has been offered by the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, Ole Miss and LSU, and David Brown is being pursued by Northwestern.
