Quentin Goodin is set to narrow his list of potential schools next week.
The Taylor County High School standout guard - considered the top player in the state of Kentucky - might narrow it to five or six from the previous list of 12 that he released earlier this year.
And it sounds like Western Kentucky has a really good shot to be a finalist.
"The reason they are still on my list is because of Chris Shumate," Goodin said of the new assistant coaching hire by Ray Harper. "Shumate and I have been close for a long time. He's a really good guy.
"It's close to home and I feel comfortable there and now they have Shumate."
Goodin listed the following schools in January: Florida, Kentucky Wesleyan, Louisville, Marquette, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, UNLV, Western Kentucky and Xavier.
He said Florida, U of L, Xavier, and several others have still been making him a priority. He also said Indiana is back on the list.
"It's going to be hard to decide," he said.
Goodin said he wants to make a college decision before his senior season starts.
