Goldman's parents have begun holding meetings with agents in an effort to vet potential representatives for their son, sources said.

Goldman, projected as a first-round talent at defensive tackle, has helped lead the Seminoles' run of two straight undefeated regular seasons. This season he has 35 tackles, eight for a loss, and leads Florida State with four sacks.

He is expected to play on Jan. 1 in the College Football Playoff semifinal game at the Rose Bowl against Oregon after suffering an ankle injury against Georgia Tech in the ACC championship game on Dec. 6.
