One of the nation’s top defensive ends is ready to end his recruitment.
Emmit Gooden, a 4-star defensive end from Haywood High School (Brownsville, Tenn.), announced that his three finalists to land his services are Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State. He will announce his final decision on Thursday at 7 p.m.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder took an official visit to Mississippi State this past weekend.
Gooden is ranked as the nation’s No. 13 strongside defensive end and is the No. 7 prospect in Tennessee.
