The incomingÂ freshman will be playing football for Charlie Strong next season and, yes, there is a Miami connection. He had narrowed his choices down to Louisville and Miami. But like most of the UofL-Miami matchups lately, Louisville came out on top.
Described as “an agile and amazingly fast pass rusher” by the Orangeburg Times &Â Democrat, Golson had 113 tackles, 30 sacks and four forced fumbles during two seasons at Calhoun County.
On the snap of the ball, Golson explodes into a fast-twitch fiber fit that, more times than not, puts him right on top of the quarterback as he gets about midway back in his drop. Handoffs; Golson comes close to taking them for himself.
Golson played in six games as a junior before being injured in an automobile accident. He was ranked as the nation’s No. 15 outside linebackerÂ Â by ESPN.com coming out of high school.
