He's already received a couple of offers from instate schools.
"I've already gotten offers from Alabama and Auburn," noted Goodson. "They offered within the last month. I really like Bama a lot."
Goodson was invited to the Junior National Showcase at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida that was held in June and had a good showing.
"I feel I had a pretty good showcase," said the 5-11, 200-pounder. "I ran the sixty in 6.57 seconds and I was able to throw 93 (miles per hour) from the outfield."
Goodson talked about his overall game.
"I feel if I take a good approach at the plate I always have a good chance at getting on base," said Matthew Goodson, who bats and throws right-handed. "I try to swipe a bag if I can. I play hard. I'm old school."
