Bowman Academy junior wide receiver Laron Golden made a visit Saturday and watched Northern Illinois beat Kansas 30-23 in college football. That was first good news for the 6-foot-3, 195-pound standout.

After the game, Northern made a scholarship offer to Golden, and he verbally committed to play for the Huskies.

"I was surprised and excited," Golden said. "I had a lot of emotions going through my head."

Golden played only defense in Friday's 38-0 win over Clark. A sore ankle kept him on one side of the ball. But the student with a 3.2 grade point average is pumped about the opportunity before him.

"The atmosphere at the college was nice. The locker room was real nice, too," said Golden, who plans to major in athletic training. "The wide receiver coach has been recruiting me since I went to a camp there this summer.

"They said I might play safety, too. I'm happy for the opportunity, and I'll do my best wherever they want me to be." -- Steve Hanlon
