Goodin talks schools

Four-star Quentin Goodin continues to add recruiting interest.

Four-star guard Quentin Goodin has really made big strides as a junior. The Campbellsville (Ken) Taylor Co. product has been adding offers and interest all year long, and continues to raise the level of his play.

“So far I feel like I have been playing pretty well,” said Goodin. “I have had some ups and downs, but I feel like overall I have had a good season, and as a team we have been pretty good.”

The 6-foot-2 Goodin is an impressive guard who has drawn significant college interest due to his versatility and athleticism. He says it has been great to gain more and more recruiting interest.

“It just feels good to have this attention, but now I know I have to cut down the list to see who really wants me and who doesn’t,” explained Goodin. “Louisville, Ohio State, Florida, and Tennessee are probably recruiting me the hardest right now.”

The most recent offer for Goodin came from Louisville, and he visited for the Cardinals game against Duke.

About Lousiville, Goodin said, “It felt good to get the offer from Louisville. It is good to know that I am wanted and that I can come if I want to. Coach (Rick) Pitino is a great coach and I fit into their style of play.”

Ohio State was out to evaluate Goodin this weekend, and he says the Buckeyes stay in consistent contact.

“I talk to Coach (Greg) Paulus a lot,” said Goodin. “He tells me to go out and play my game, and he wanted to see how much I progressed from the summer when I was playing with a torn meniscus. He just told me to play my game, and I like the program.”

Also the Florida Gators have been involved with Goodin for a long time, and he is high on the program.

“I am real interested in Florida,” said Goodin. “We talk every day or every other day. They are recruiting me pretty hard, so that is good.”

Also the Tennessee Volunteers continue to make a strong push for Goodin.

“I like the atmosphere at Tennessee and how they treat me like I am the number one guy they want,” explained Goodin. “They tell me that I could help them after they lose or something like that, and I feel those guys really want me.”

For now Goodin says he just wants to have as much information as possible before making any kind of college decision.
