Tahaan Godman, the top-ranked uncommitted safety in the country, won’t make his scheduled visit to LSU this weekend in what could have been a key recruiting trip with National Signing Day fast approaching.
The four-star recruit from Rancho Cucamonga High School spoke with LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond on Thursday about leaving for Baton Rouge, La., on Friday. But as of Friday afternoon, rivals.com’s fourth-ranked safety in the nation hadn’t received the travel information to make the visit.
“I guess it’s too late to go now,” Goodman said. “Some of my friends are going to UCLA this weekend, so I was thinking about stopping by there.”
Goodman is still considering LSU along with UCLA, USC, Washington, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Florida, Miami and Florida State. Goodman has taken trips to Washington, Oklahoma, USC and UCLA – two of which were unofficial – but he has made clear he hasn’t visited a school out of state yet that felt like somewhere he could live.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior is trying to squeeze in as many visits as possible before Feb. 6, when he plans to have a decision. He is leaning toward scheduling a trip the weekend of Jan. 26 to one of the Florida schools on is list.
