UCONN Big Man Target Setting Up Visits

Big men are hard to come by in the class of 2005 ...

Vernon Goodridge, a 6-foot-9, shot-blocking center from Brooklyn, New York, told the Insiders Report that he is likely to take an official visit to Mississippi State in the middle of September.

"I being school on September 15th," Goodridge said. "I think I will probably take an official visit to Mississippi State the next weekend after school begins."

Goodridge, who has already visited Connecticut and Georgetown unofficially, also plans on taking an official visit to Florida State. "I don't know when that visit will take place," he said. "But I do hope to visit them."

Vernon, as reported by Dave Telep today on the Insiders Hoops site, is expected to visit Seton Hall tomorrow unofficially. "I am looking forward to it," he said. "I plan to go there with my family."

Goodridge also mentioned interest in Virginia Tech and he also said he was unsure when he might make a decision on a trip to the ACC school.
