NJ WR would love to hear more from Dawgs
Matthew Borenstein: How have things been going? Derek Gould: Things have been going well. I am finishing up playing basketball and started prepping for those combines. MB: What schools have you visited? DG: Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers. MB: What about Georgia? DG: I am real interested. I wrote and called. They sent me a questionnaire and I have gotten a couple letters. MB: What's the interest in Georgia? DG: I got a lot of family down there (in Atlanta). I did a little follow-up and like the area. I've been down there and been outside of the campus. I like the type of offense and they got a real good offensive coordinator. MB: What schools have you been hearing from? DG: Miami, Northwestern, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Ohio State, Virgina is coming soon, Pittsburgh and a couple on the west coast. MB: Have you narrowed your list? DG: Yeah, my top five are Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Pitt and Connecticut. Ohio State and Penn State are further down the list. MB: Have you made any visits? DG: Only an unofficial to Rutgers, an hour and 20 minutes from home. MB: Are you attending any junior days? DG: Rutgers on March 3. MB: Have you heard about Georgia's junior day? DG: No, nothing about it. MB: Do you have any offers? DG: No. MB: Are you attending any camps? DG: Yes, Pittsburg, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple and the Offense/Defense Camp in Philadelphia. MB: What do you look for in a school? DG: The facilities help. And a good coaching staff. I look at the whole surrounding area and make sure I feel comfortable around the teammates. MB: Do you want to commit early? DG: Definitely yeah. I want to commit to my first or second offer from any of my top five that offer. MB: How did last season go? DG: It went by pretty good. We ran offense that mainly ran and the pass game was iffy with a first-year starting quarterback. I had 33 catches for 380 yards and four TDs. I was first team All-Conference. MB: How's basketball season going? DG: It's going real well. We started 1-9, but made the playoffs back at .500. It's going real nice. MB: What are you looking forward to next year? DG: I just want to get out there and show some senior leadership and make things happen. I want to win an state championship for not only myself, but also my coach.
