"I really am just between the two," Goins said. "I'm kind of leaning one way, but I have to think about it for a couple of days."
Last week Goins told VTInsider.com he was still mulling over Maryland, but that is no longer the case.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Goins was told during a visit to Virginia Tech last week his offer was shifted from being a gray-shirt to that of a member of the class of 2011, if that is what he wanted to do.
On Friday, Goins took a trip to Virginia, and was impressed by Cavaliers coach Mike London, and how he sold his vision for the program and how Goins would fit in on the offensive line. It's not a for sure thing. It's just how it looks.
"Now that I went on those two visits, I learned a lot about both of those schools, so now I'm pretty close," Goins said of a decision. "I learned some stuff I didn't learn before. I got a chance to know the Virginia staff better than I did before. It was just me up there.
"You do a little better when it is solitary then when there are 30 other recruits there."
Goins has not decided when he will announce his choice, but with training camp less than two weeks away, it will be soon.
"I will do it before practice starts," Goins said. "I don't have anything set up yet."
