Friday night, Raytown (MO) South junior George Goode hopped into a car with his AAU coach Robin Lucas and his Rocktown teammate Rashad Lucas. The trio, along with Goode’s parents, made the short drive over to Lawrence for Kansas’ Late Night festivities. The 6-8 forward didn’t really know what to expect but left Allen Fieldhouse impressed.
“I thought it was real nice,” said the soft spoken Goode. “I liked everything, especially how everybody showed up like that and it was only a practice. I don’t think I had a favorite part, it was all fun.”
With several other recruits on hand, Goode was also able to spend some time with the Kansas coaching staff. From the sounds of it, the staff didn’t have to do much selling.
“We talked about the school and the crowd,” said Goode. “They said that this is just like it is during the season.”
Also impressed with his time in Lawrence was Goode’s father George, Sr. Much like his son, the elder Goode had no idea what to expect but enjoyed his time at Late Night.
“It was nice, I really liked that. I thought it was real cool,” said Goode. “You know what? I think George really enjoyed it too. My wife and I had a real nice time.”
According to Goode it is still very early in the recruiting process and he doesn’t have a concrete list of favorites. However, after performing for several high major programs in an open gym setting over the last month or so, the long and lean shooter is starting to get a better idea of who he likes the most and Kansas ranks right up there after Late Night.
