Oklahoma Scores Highly Rated JUCO Prospect

Jeff Capel reeled in one of the better JUCO post prospects on Sunday.

Jeff Capel and Oklahoma scored Robert Goff -- one of the best JUCO big men in the country -- late Sunday evening.

"I just feel like Oklahoma is the best fit for me," Goff told Scout.com. "I feel a very close connection with coach Capel and I feel like with the guys that they have there that we can win a championship."

A 6-foot-9, 240-pound big man out of Hutchinson (Kans.) Community College, Goff was a highly touted high school prospect that blossomed into one of the nation's top junior college post prospects.

Wichita State, Indiana, Ohio State and Texas were also under heavy consideration but ultimately Goff was leaning towards the Sooners the whole way.

"In the back of my mind I always wanted to go to Oklahoma," he said. "But the visit really put the icing cake for me."

Goff is an Indiana native that played his high school ball at Indianapolis (Ind.) Broad Ripple.
