Woodlawn's Jason Goode, an All-Metro tight end, will sign a national letter of intent tomorrow to attend the University of Maryland.

Goode, who selected the Terps after a campus visit during the weekend of Jan. 23, said he and teammate Scott Burley, who committed to Maryland in August, will sign during a ceremony at Woodlawn.

Goode, 17, played three seasons at quarterback for Archbishop Curley before transferring to Woodlawn for his senior season. At Woodlawn, Goode played running back, receiver, tight end, defensive end and linebacker. Goode rushed for 476 yards and seven touchdowns, and he caught 19 passes for 400 yards and five scores to lead the Warriors to the Class 4A North region crown and a berth in the state semifinals.

The 6-foot-4, 238-pound Goode said making a final decision was not easy.

"Narrowing it down to only one school out of the number of them that were knocking on my door - I cannot begin to tell you how really difficult of a decision that was for me," said Goode, who is a power forward on the 11th-ranked Warriors basketball team and also plays baseball. "I never dreamed that schools like UCLA would come after me."
