Goodin off to strong start

The season has started off well for Quentin Goodin

Four-star guard Quentin Goodin is off to a solid start to his junior season The 6-foot-3 guard is playing on and off the ball at Campbellsville (Ken.) Taylor County, and he is continuing to work to become a more complete player.

With good size, solid athleticism, and an excellent ability to get to the rim, Goodin is someone who has been on the radar of college coaches for a while, and so far he says things are going well this year.

“So far the season is going well,” said Goodin. “We have fought through it and played some tough teams, and I think we are playing pretty well.”

Always a driver who gets to the bucket, Goodin is now trying hard to be more of a threat shooting the ball.

“I am working on my jump shot mostly,” explained Goodin. “A lot of coaches have told me that my game can go to the next level if I can consistently pull up at the free throw line and hit the mid-range jumper.”

Recruiting wise Goodin says a handful of schools are currently recruiting him the hardest.

“So far the teams recruiting me the hardest are Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Florida,” noted Goodin.

Minnesota boss Richard Pitino was in attendance to see Goodin on Saturday, and Goodin says the Gophers are clearly making him a top target.

“I really like how they are recruiting me hard,” said Goodin of Minnesota. “They come to my 5:30 in the morning workouts, and just show that they really want me.”

Also Michigan has been heavily involved with Goodin for a while, and he likes what the program stands for.

“I like how their playing style is good and they do a really good job of developing their players,” said Goodin. “Also the coaching staff there is great.”

Currently there is no specific timetable for Goodin to make his decision.
