News had been slowly trickling out of Demetri Goodson's camp. While many of the top remaining point guards were making college choices, Goodson hadn't even visited a program officially. Then, on Monday afternoon, an email arrived with the news.
"I wanted to let you know that Demetri Goodson of Klein Collins High School committed to Gonzaga today," KCHS coach Tim Schumacher emailed.
Goodson, a just nipping 6-foot point guard, checks in as the No. 31 point guard in Scout.com's most recent ranking. However, as far as high school points go, he was one of the five best remaining.
Oklahoma was keeping tabs. So was Texas A&M until it landed Dashan Harris. SMU, Colorado and Wichita State were right there. However, Gonzaga got it done. The Zags actually were considered the behind-the-scenes leaders for a long time.
The Zags have put together a nice recruiting class. Power forward Andy Poling was the first to pledge allegiance, followed by Grant Gibbs (No. 12 PG per Scout.com). Goodson is the third member of the class.
