Tarpon Springs RB Adrian Golden, who has rushed for 1,094 yards and averages 10 yards per carry, has been offered by Georgia Military College, a two-year school.

“I’m real familiar with them,” Spongers coach George Kotis said. “It’s one of the top-five programs in the country.”

Kotis said “eight or nine” junior college programs have been at Tarpon Springs in the past week, all hoping to land the talented Golden. Golden, most people agree, has major Division I-A talent (Iowa State is among those very interested). But because he still has some work to do in the classroom to meet NCAA qualifying requirements, junior college could become a viable option.

Right now, it’s still too early to tell which direction Golden will take.

The good news, though, is that he certainly will have a place to play and continue his education.

Since 1991, GMC has developed 45 All-Americans, won a national championship and twice been national runnerup. Additionally, it has sent more than 300 players to four-year schools.
