More On Vernon Goodridge's Recruiting

The rumors continue to swirl about Vernon Goodrich but the people surrounding him say they aren't true

Rumors of Vernon Goodridge's commitment were knocked down by Philadelphia Christian coach Darryl Schoefield earlier this week, and the 6-foot-9 230 pound Brooklyn native gave some feedback on the subject at the Adidas Super 64 on Friday.

"I haven't made any commitments yet," said Goodridge.

A Mississippi State assistant was visible at courtside for Goodridge's 20-point performance in the Gym Rats' loss to the Compton Magic on Friday night. Also in attendance were Georgetown head man John Thompson III and Seton Hall's Louis Orr.

"Right now I'm considering Georgetown, Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, Mississippi State, and UConn," said Goodridge. "I'd like to take officials to my top five.

I'll probably make a decision sometime in August."

Goodridge showed the fearsome shot-blocking ability and improving offensive repertoire that have made him one of the hottest frontcourt targets out the class of 2005 on Friday night. He continues to improve on both ends, and has considerable upside. His best ball is ahead of him.
