Goulbourne Enjoys Marquette Visit

September is a big month for official visits and this past weekend, Lance Goulbourne got into the act, as he tripped to Marquette. He still has a pair of visits to go, but he was certainly impressed with what the Golden Eagles have to offer.

The official visits are under way for Lance Goulbourne. The Princeton (N.J.) Hun School standout took his first of three scheduled official visits this past weekend. Marquette was up first.

"I think it went great," Goulbourne said. "I had a lot of fun and all of the players were cool. It was pretty nice. I like the campus and the school isn't too big, but not too small. I thought it was pretty good. I think I can make an impact there early on."

Next up for the 6-foot-7, 215-pound senior is Virginia. The Cavaliers will host him this coming weekend. Goulbourne likes the fact that he could go there and compete for immediate playing time. He's also familiar with the offense that they run.

"It's almost the same as Marquette because they like to get up and down," he said. "Also because my high school team plays the four out offense and they play the four out offense at Virginia too. I think I could fit in good with that."

"They have a lot space for me to come in and play because they are losing a lot of people at the three and four spots. It's also a great academic institution and that's very important to me."

Although he's already been there once, Goulbourne decided to schedule an official visit for Vanderbilt as well. He'll head there on the 29th.

"Vanderbilt of course is another great academic place. I definitely could go in there and play early. They only have two wings and I think I could challenge for a starting spot."

"I also like their coaching staff because they were the first school to offer me a scholarship, back when I was a sophomore. The city of Nashville is beautiful and I like the campus and the people."

Following his trip to Vanderbilt, Goulbourne will decide if another visit is needed.

"I think I'm going to wait until after my three consecutive [visits] to see if I want to take another one," Goulbourne said. "After my Vanderbilt visit I'm going to decided if I'm going to take a visit to Notre Dame, Michigan or Rutgers."
