Top frosh 'impressed' by Louisville visit

One of the top young high school basketball prospects in the state of Kentucky made an official visit to the University of Louisville on Sunday. Cardinal Authority talked to Taylor County High School's Quentin Goodin after the game.

Taylor County High School standout freshman Quentin Goodin had made two other unofficial visits to the University of Louisville.

But on Sunday, Goodin made the trip again with his parents and for the first time to a regular-season game at the KFC Yum! Center. He was one of four prospects in attendance when Louisville beat Marquette 70-51.

"I really didn't know what to expect, but I was amazed," Goodin said. "I was really impressed by everything. It was so loud and the atmosphere really got the players going. It was really impressive."

The 6-foot-2 Goodin had also been to U of L for a practice during the fall and the Red-White scrimmage before the season. He spent some time with the coaches after the game in Sunday, talking about the future.

"They told me to keep working hard on my game," Goodin said. "They said they're going to come and watch me this summer."

Goodin, who doesn't have an offer yet, has also visited Tennessee and Purdue and is hearing from Xavier, West Virginia, Indiana, Western Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky among a bunch of other schools.

"I am having a good time (with the attention)," Goodin said. "But I really don't worry about it all right now. I'm just taking it all in."

Goodin averaged 11.1 points, 4.2 assists and 2.5 rebounds a game as an eighth-grader on the varsity level last season at Taylor County. He's averaging 15.5 points and 5.4 rebounds a game this season for the Cardinals.
