Goodman Opens It Up

Jordan Goodman is on the move again. There's been a development in his recruitment and it could involve another Big East school.

Jordan Goodman may play in the Big East but it won't be at Georgetown. On Monday,'s 17th ranked power forward in the Class of 2011 opted out of his pledge to the Hoyas.

"The Georgetown family knows," Goodman said of his decision. "My father told them and I didn't speak to them after that."

Goodman, a 6-foot-8 power forward who played most recently at Progressive Christian in Camp Springs, Md., will likely attend school in either New Jersey or North Carolina next season. There is also a strong chance that he reclassifies into 2012.

As for college, expect Rutgers to become a prominent player in his recruitment. New Knights assistant coach David Cox was the link to Goodman during his time at Georgetown and is now expected to provide the link at Rutgers.

"Rutgers is on the list," Goodman said. "Coach David Cox is moving to Rutgers and he's one of the reasons why I committed to Georgetown. I don't know much about them but in two weeks I'm going down on an unofficial visit."

Goodman is scheduled for an unofficial visit June 3-4.

"As of right now, I'm just working out and trying to get better. As I progress whatever schools call my name I'll take a look at them."
